If you’re considering ways to repair or replace missing or damaged teeth and beautify your smile, dental implants may be the answer you’ve been looking for!
There are a lot of reasons why people lose their teeth. Oftentimes, poor general maintenance of one’s mouth can lead to missing or damaged teeth, but dentists also now attribute oral health concerns to genetics, illnesses or disease, traumatic injury, and more. If you are missing teeth and are concerned about your overall oral health, you may find yourself perking up when one of those “dental implant” radio ads hits the airwaves during your morning commute…
“Dental implants now available for the low price of…, contact us today!”
“Don’t suffer from missing teeth any longer, contact your dentist today and ask about dental implants!”
“Dental implants are now more affordable than ever!”
After all, the idea of a full set of teeth sounds like a dream come true – and slightly unattainable, right?
The fact is, dental implants are much more accessible to the average dental patient today than they were just ten years ago. Dental technology has certainly advanced over the past decade, and quality dental implants that were once considered overly expensive and invasive to install are now more affordable than ever. If you’re looking to finally address your damaged or missing teeth, consider the following benefits of dental implants:
1. Dental implants improve overall health: Here’s an incredible statistic — the average American has 12 missing teeth by the age of 50! Dental implants no longer act as a simple cosmetic enhancement for your mouth. Rather, they represent an integral part of the body’s complex digestive system, as a healthy mouth has been directly linked to better overall health across numerous studies. Missing multiple teeth can impact digestion, jaw alignment, and certainly impacts one’s sense of confidence and comfort in social situations.
2. Dental implants are a permanent solution: There is no better way to create a strong, healthy and confident smile than by enlisting the services of a skilled oral surgeon who understands the nuances of a dental implant procedure. Dental implants are affixed to the jawbone and actually fuse to the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once healed, the implants along with their mounted dental crowns look, feel, and perform just like real teeth – sometimes even better!
- Daily maintenance demands are low: If you’re well-versed in the basic care needs of natural teeth – namely, twice daily brushing, flossing, rinsing, and semi-annual trips to the dentist, then you now understand the fundamental care requirements for dental implants! Your dentist will explain exactly how to maintain your beautiful new smile, but most of the basic care steps parallel what you’d expect with natural teeth. And unlike bridges or dentures, no nighttime rituals or extensive cleaning sessions are required.
- No one will know you’ve had dental implants: While advances in denture and bridge technology has certainly made these traditional solutions a viable option for those with oral health concerns, there is no comparing these older-style dental appliances to the look and functionality of dental implants – in essence, implants are practically real teeth. You’ll speak normally, eat as you would with natural teeth, and bypass virtually all of the care routines you’d be forced to manage with dentures or a bridge.
The verdict is clear, dental implants offer the functionality, looks, and affordability demanded by discerning dental patients today. If you have missing or damaged teeth and are looking for an option that can improve your overall oral health, boost your self-confidence, and restore some or all of your damaged teeth, consider dental implants today!
