If losing one or more teeth have caused you to feel self-conscious, but you are hesitant to receive uncomfortable dentures or alter your smile to fit a dental bridge, you may find dental implants to be just right. Dental implants are titanium posts attached to dental restorations to replace your tooth roots and missing teeth.

You may find that receiving dental implants enhances your smile and provides the following improvements in your life:

– Self-esteem and smile appearance: The custom make of dental implants allows them to be very similar to original teeth, fusing with the jawbone to remain firm and improve self-esteem.
– Speech: You may have found that ill-fitting dentures can make you slur or mumble, but dental implants allow you to speak with confidence without your teeth shifting.
– Comfort: Implants ensure you don’t have to endure the discomfort of ill-fitted dentures.
– Dental health: Dental implants don’t require tooth reduction, and because the remaining teeth stay intact, your long-term dental health will thank you.
– Durability: The durability of dental implants means they can last up to a lifetime with proper care.
– Eating: Denture that shift each time you eat make food a challenge, but your dental implants feel and function like natural teeth.
– Convenience: Dental implants don’t require dental adhesive or nightly removal because they are a permanent part of your smile.
