What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Implants are a Permanent Solution to Missing Teeth

Modern implants are a highly successful solution for missing teeth. Studies show that well-cared for implants can last decades and be a beneficial part of your life-long smile.

Implants Can Restore the Appearance of Your Natural Smile

Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Your dentist will work with you to match the color, size, and shape of your surrounding teeth so that your implant will fit perfectly and look amazing!

Implants Can Prevent Bone Loss in Your Jaw

When a tooth is missing, the jaw bone in the empty space often deteriorates over time due to lack of stimulation. Studies indicate that as much as 25% or more of the bone volume can be lost during the first year a tooth is missing and then continues over the years.

Additionally, dentures frequently accelerate the bone loss by becoming loose over time and eroding the bone by the constant movement. Because an implant replaces the tooth root, chewing and bone stimulation is restored and natural bone growth continues.

Implants Can Prevent Changes to the Shape of Your Face

Your teeth and surrounding jaw-bone support the natural shape and structure of your face. When you lose a tooth, you additionally lose that support. The effect grows more pronounced over time as you additionally lose bone mass in the surrounding areas. This deterioration will eventually affect the natural shape of your face, which often presents as somewhat of a ‘sunken’ appearance.

By replacing the tooth and the root with an implant, you not only fill the empty space created by the tooth loss, but you additionally stimulate the bone through the natural chewing process. This helps the bone to continue to grow naturally, preventing the changes in your face.

Implants Can Restore Your Natural Bite Force and Chewing Ability

Since dental implants are embedded into the jaw with a metal stud, typically made of titanium, they restore the natural bite force of the tooth and chewing ability. This is something that other methods of tooth replacement, such as dentures and dental bridges, are unable to provide.

Implants Can Improve Your Speech

Much of our speech function is connected to our teeth. The ability to pronounce certain sounds is affected when we lose a tooth. Even dentures can affect our natural speech. By replacing a tooth with a dental implant, we additionally restore the natural function of speech that was lost with the tooth.

Implants Can Restore and Improve Your Self-Image and Confidence

Renewed confidence with your smile can help you feel like yourself again and improve your emotional well-being. And while there are many health related reasons to get an implant, the significant benefits to your confidence, self-image, and emotional health should certainly be considered also.
