A missing tooth is one of the quickest ways to wreck your smile.
It not only affects your gum and bone health, but it can lead to more tooth loss down the road.
That’s why our team at Cosmetic Dental Associates wants you to know about dental implants and what makes them a great choice to rebuild your smile after tooth loss.
Top Reasons To Rebuild Your Smile With Dental Implants
With each year, technology keeps advancing and improving. What that means for our patients is that you have several options when deciding which tooth replacement method will work best for your situation.
Here are our top reasons to rebuild your smile with dental implants:
*Implant Restorations Look Real*
The restorations we use atop a dental implant to replace a missing tooth are incredibly lifelike. Your new tooth blends in naturally with your other teeth, giving you a healthier, seamless smile. Unless you tell them, people may not even notice your new tooth isn’t your own!
*Implants Can Make You Look Younger*
One of the perks of youth is that our teeth haven’t had enough time to show evidence of our diet or lifestyle. It takes a long time for teeth to become stained and dark, or worn down from habits like eating ice cubes or biting your nails.
That’s why dental implants capped with natural-looking restorations will help take years off your appearance, making you look younger with a much brighter smile.
*Implants Are Low Maintenance*
You don’t have to make any modifications to your normal oral hygiene routine, which makes an implant a very low maintenance choice.
Brushing twice each day and flossing once a day is all you need to do to clean your new teeth. That, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, can help you get the most out of your implant.
*Implants Keep Your Jawbone Healthy*
When you lose a tooth, you also lose the root of that tooth.
This poses a problem if you don’t replace it. The large space that’s left would otherwise result in deterioration of your jawbone and potentially more tooth loss.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. Made of biocompatible titanium, an implant is placed inside the empty socket, and eventually it fuses with your jawbone and keeps it strong and healthy.
*Implants Are The Strongest Replacement*
You want your new tooth to be strong and structurally sound.
A dental implant is both, which is why it’s the most ideal replacement option.
It not only bonds to your jawbone for stability, it fills the space left behind by your missing tooth. What that does is protect your surrounding teeth from shifting around.
*Implants Are Lasting*
The longest lasting tooth replacement is a dental implant. It can work for you, depending on your age, for the rest of your life or twenty years or more when cared for properly.
Even if the restoration, or replacement tooth, gets worn, loose, or falls out after a number of years, that part can easily be replaced with a new restoration.
Your implant can still remain firmly in place, as it will already be attached to your jawbone.
