Do you feel ashamed or embarrassed to smile anytime someone goes to take your picture? Do you feel hindered by the condition of your teeth? Whether it’s a missing tooth or deteriorating enamel, feeling insecure about your smile is no laughing matter. It can have a lasting, negative impact on your life. Luckily, thanks to dental implants, you can have that beautiful smile you desire. Here’s how they can transform your smile and your life.
Natural Look, Feel and Function
If you’re considering having work done to your teeth, you want only the best, and of course, that means having teeth that will look natural. Dental implants are the best alternative for achieving that natural look. They are strong, sturdy, and function as any regular teeth would. So there’s no need to worry about deterioration or feeling unsure each time you bite into an apple.
When your dental implants are properly maintained and cared for, they can last a lifetime. The most they may require is a few minor adjustments. With other alternative measures, this often isn’t the case. Other traditional methods can only have a lifespan of about 10 years, and may even require complete replacements.
Keep a Healthy Mouth
When teeth are missing from your smile, this can lead to deterioration in your jawbone over time since it doesn’t have the support from a tooth. This can also lead to sagging of the jaw. Implants can preserve, restore and maintain the health of your bone, jaw, and overall oral health.
Kept in Place
With some traditional methods, such as dentures or bridges, the assurance for teeth to be kept in place isn’t always a guarantee. Whether it’s eating, laughing or simply talking, there’s always that presences of fear that something may fall out of place. Dental implants on the other hand, are fused to your jawbone meaning they won’t shift or fall out. So you can go on with your life with ease.
One of the best benefits of implants is that you can’t develop any cavities with them. But they still require you to visit your dentist for regular checkups and maintenance for the health of your gums and mouth.
Stop hiding behind your smile. If you’re constantly feeling insecure about a missing tooth or the condition of your teeth then it’s time to liberate your smile with dental implants.
