Dental implants are usually the first choice when it comes to replacing missing or damaged teeth. Here are the main reasons why…
The closest thing to real teeth
Dental implants, look, feel and work just like a natural tooth. They are strong, easy to maintain, and no one can tell the difference!
They last longer than other options
Dental implants are designed to be a long term solution, and if properly looked after, they can literally last a lifetime. Dental bridges last around 5-7 years, or with excellent care maybe a decade, but they will eventually have to be replaced.
Protect healthy bone
Leaving gaps in your mouth after losing a tooth can lead to further health problems, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. When it is not being used to support a natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.
With dental implants, you don’t have to worry about taking them out at the end of the night, or have to worry about them breaking or slipping out. You simply brush, floss and clean your teeth the same way you always did! Dentures also make it difficult sometimes for people to speak. Because dental implants act like natural teeth, you can talk as you normally would.
Eat whatever you want
Unlike dentures, you can eat whatever you like with dental implants. They act naturally, so you can act naturally too! Experience the full taste of all your favourite foods, without having to worry about breaking a tooth in the process.
They change your life
If you’re self-conscious about your teeth and feel uncomfortable in public, dental implants can really change your outlook on life. No more avoiding social situations or hiding your smile when you laugh. You’ll feel like a different person, one full of confidence and joy! So smile!
