5 Life-Changing Benefits of Dental Implants
Conventional dentures work for some people, but you may not like the idea of taking them out every night to soak, having to scrub them clean all the time, or feeling the soreness they can cause from sitting on your gums all day.
Placed inside your jaw to replace the missing root, a dental implant becomes part of the structural foundation of your mouth for lasting strength and function, which can be life-changing in the following ways:
*You’ll Feel Secure About Your Smile*
Instead of loose dentures that have the potential to slip around in your mouth, or worse, fall out, you’ll feel secure about your smile. Since an implant is an artificial tooth root, attaching itself naturally to your jawbone, your new tooth isn’t going anywhere, so you can share a meal with other people and socially freely without worrying about embarrassing slips.
You’ll also have peace of mind about your oral health in general!
*You’ll Look Great*
Instead of large, empty spaces in your smile, you’ll have a complete set of teeth that look and act like the real thing. You’ll look great and feel even better knowing you have a smile you don’t have to hide.
*You Can Eat Better*
You can’t eat comfortably if you have loose, damaged, or missing teeth. That loss of oral function means you’re going to be limited to softer foods that won’t hurt your mouth.
Your bite strength with dental implants, on the other hand, is almost the same as that of your natural teeth, so you can eat whatever you want and enjoy it!
*You Don’t Have To Change Your Routine*
Restorations are attached to dental implants and will stay firmly in place, so you can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine. Caring for your dental implants is as easy as brushing and flossing and visiting Dr. Fox routinely for cleanings and exams.
*You Can Stop Stressing About Your Teeth*
A painful toothache or having to chew on one side of your mouth because of tooth sensitivity or loss of oral function are things you won’t have to stress about anymore once you have dental implants. Since they preserve the jawbone, your surrounding teeth will be stable, so you won’t have to worry about further deterioration of your dental health.
