Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have been called one of our generation’s most significant dental innovations, and it’s easy to see why! Implants are designed to closely mimic the structure of our natural teeth, from root to crown. As a result, dental implants provide numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options like dentures or dental bridges. Our experienced team, at Smile Haven Dental Center will examine your smile and discuss the benefits of implants during your personalized consult.

Eat and Speak With Ease with Dental Implants

A couple of significant benefits of implants is that they restore full chewing power and the ability to speak clearly and comfortably. Also, no more food restrictions, no difficulty shaping words around dentures, no special care required! Once fully healed, most patients cannot distinguish between their natural teeth and their implant. They can also brush and floss entirely normally.

Dental Implants Improved Oral Health

When a tooth is missing, the jaw bone in the space shrinks away due to the absence of stimulation, and surrounding teeth begin to shift into the gap. This “shifting” eventually results in teeth alignment issues throughout the mouth and interferes with your ability to chew appropriately. This shifting also increases your risk of oral health issues like gum disease, tooth decay, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, which can result in regular headaches and discomfort around the jaw and mouth. A dental implant controls these issues, and as a bonus, the prosthetic crown can not develop cavities! 

Durability, Longevity, and Cost Savings

When placed and cared for properly, implants have a very high success rate of 98%. Plus, dental implants are built to last — with good oral hygiene and regular dentist visits, dental implants can last a lifetime. In contrast, dentures require frequent adjustments as your jaw bone shrinks without the stimulation of tooth roots. As a result, they can be more expensive than a permanent dental implant in the long run. 

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

When completed, dental implants look and perform just like your natural teeth! Also, dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that stimulates the jaw bone and prevents bone loss. This unique feature protects your natural face shape, structure, and smile, which would otherwise begin to sag and prematurely age without teeth support. With dental implants, you can smile, eat, speak, and laugh with complete confidence again!
