Four ways implants make your life better

If you’re missing one or more teeth, implants can be more than just a permanent tooth replacement treatment—they can improve your quality of life.

1. Love the way you look

Nobody likes the way their mouth looks when there’s a gap in their smile. Filling those holes with new teeth can make all the difference.  Here’s some great news. The crown that attaches to your dental implant will look exactly like your natural teeth, so nobody will know you were ever missing teeth.

2. Eat your favorite foods

If you’ve been choosing meals based on what you think will be easy to chew, you’re going to love making the switch to dental implants. Dental implants function just like your natural teeth, giving you the ability to chew through your favorite foods.

3. Avoid future tooth loss

To install a dental implant, a titanium post is implanted into your jawbone at the site of your missing tooth. This post performs the same function as your natural roots, holding your new tooth in place and stimulating new bone growth while you chew. This bone growth strengthens your jaw, prevents the bone loss that comes from missing teeth, and protects adjacent teeth from loosening.

4. Boost your self-esteem

There’s an old saying that goes, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” Now that your dental implants have filled in the gaps, it’s easy to grin from ear to ear to finish your outfit.
