Are you considering getting dental implants to replace your missing teeth? While there are plenty of tooth replacement options out there to choose from, here are four reasons why you may want to consider implants instead:
Dental Implants Can Last for Life
A properly maintained dental implant can potentially last the rest of your life. They don’t need to be updated and replaced the same way more conventional prosthetics occasionally do.
Modern Implants are Stronger than Natural Teeth
It’s true. These biocompatible, artificial roots are capable of supporting even more weight than a natural tooth does. That means biting and chewing will be a breeze and you won’t have to alter your normal dietary habits.
You Can Replace Any Number of Teeth You Need
Since implants are so strong, we can pair them together to support multi-tooth restorations. For instance, you might only need four dental implants in total to support a fixed, full-mouth restoration. On the other hand, if you’re only replacing one tooth, you’ll just want one implant..
Implants Promote Improved Oral Health
Once installed, dental implants help promote healthy bone density and height, slowing the natural process of bone loss that happens when you lose a tooth. This characteristic helps delay the onset of premature aging and sunken facial features. Plus, implants help retain natural tooth placement by preventing your neighboring or opposing teeth from shifting out of place (a common side-effect of tooth loss.)
