What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are extremely natural looking artificial teeth. They look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. For many patients who are missing some or all of their teeth, dental implants can be a life-changing option. Those who have received dental implants have found a regained confidence in life because they are once again comfortable with laughing, eating, and speaking in public.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
There are several reasons that dental implants have become such a popular choice:
- Dental implants are longer lasting – As advanced as dentures have become, they still do not provide support for the jawbone. In time, the underlying bone structure begins to dissolve. Dental implants protect the integrity of the bone structure because they are implanted directly into the bone.
- Dental implants are more comfortable – The base to which dentures are attached can feel a bit bulky in the mouth. However, since implants are attached directly to the teeth they feel and function like your real teeth. You can talk and eat with the same comfort that you always have.
- Dental implants look more natural – Implants not only feel like real teeth, but they look just like the real thing. They look so natural that most people will never know that they are not your original teeth. This allows you to smile, eat, and speak in social situations without any hesitation.
