5 Reasons to Choose Dental Implants for a Lost Tooth

You have recently lost a tooth or perhaps you have more than one tooth missing. When you look in the mirror, your smile just isn’t the same as it used to be. Are you a good candidate for dental implants to fill in the gaps between your teeth? You may be surprised to know some of the interesting things about dental implants and why you should consider getting them.

1. Dental Implants are Strong

Do you want to make sure your new teeth are going to last? Dental implants are made from titanium, one of the strongest materials available. These artificial roots are placed in your jawbone and basically become a part of you. The bone in your jaw will eventually grow around the titanium root and provide the support that is often stronger than your natural teeth.

2. Better Oral Health

Dental implants will help support the shape of your jaw. When you are missing teeth your mouth can begin to lose its natural contours and result in the change of your facial structure. Without your natural teeth in place, your other teeth are more prone to infection, cavities, and decay. Dental implants can help protect the surrounding teeth and implants do not get cavities!

3. Long-Lasting Teeth

Your natural teeth are susceptible to cracks, chips and decay. With dental implants, you can stop worrying about the longevity of your smile because with proper treatment and care they can last decades. You will need to care for your implants as you would your natural teeth to keep them looking and working as they should.

4. Dental Implants Work Even with Loss of Jawbone

Are you still a candidate for dental implants if you have experienced a loss of bone in your jaw? Implants can work for you even if your jawbone is weak. Specialized treatments are available to grow jawbone and increase the strength of your mouth so it can sustain dental implants. This procedure takes more time but the results can give you back your beautiful smile.

5. Fill in The Gap

Whether you have lost a tooth during a sporting event or perhaps from extreme decay, you need to consider dental implants. Replacing lost teeth gives you back the functionality of your mouth and is aesthetically pleasing. Your new dental implants can fill in the gap between teeth, act as an anchor for a prosthetic device such as a bridge, and can even support a set of upper or lower dentures.

What are you waiting for? Make a dentist appointment to get an assessment done to see if you are the perfect candidate for dental implants. The sooner you replace those missing teeth, the better you will look and feel.
