Are you new to the world of dental implants? At first glance, they seem intimidating but here at Lakeside Center for Implant Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping you understand everything that dental implants can do to benefit your everyday life. There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
Improved appearance. Crowns supported by dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because implants are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip and move within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. Dental implants offer improved comfort because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants allow dentures to snap in, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
