Dental Implants Benefits You Should Know

dental implants benefitsThe most obvious dental implants benefits are that they look and feel like your natural teeth. Beyond this there are also several other benefits you may not realize.

Dental implants are essentially replacement roots. They provide a base for which a removable or fixed faux tooth will sit, and the preferred choice for our Greensboro office dental patients looking to restore their teet. The benefits to acquiring dental implants include:

  • Improved appearance – Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • Improved speech – With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved comfort – Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier eating – Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem – Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improved oral health – Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does – Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
