Living with tooth loss can make even simple daily tasks, like eating or socializing, difficult or uncomfortable. Fortunately, modern dentistry has shown Dr. Link that anything is possible when it comes to restoring a person’s unique smile.
Dental implants are permanent, lifelike tooth replacements for missing teeth. While dentures are removable, dental implants are surgically placed beneath the gums into the jawbone.
There are several benefits of having dental implants, many of which we believe can enhance a person’s oral health and wellbeing.
#1 Permanently Replaces Missing Teeth
Dental implants are permanent. Because your prosthodontist inserts dental implants into the jawbone, you never have to worry about your teeth shifting around in your mouth. They provide an even, balanced bite you can rely upon for many years to come.
#2 Supports Facial Muscles
Dental implants support your facial muscles. Missing teeth can make your face look sunken in or saggy, but dental implants fill in empty spaces and provide additional support to the jawbone and face. As a result, people with dental implants look more youthful and fresh-faced.
#3 Promotes Jawbone Health
Dental implants promote jawbone health. When your prosthodontist places the dental implant, it takes time for the osseointegration process to complete. This naturally occurring process occurs when the bone and implant merge and grow into each other, reinforcing the jawbone’s strength and stability.
#4 Seamlessly Matches Your Appearance
Dental implants are custom-made to complement your appearance. Our dental implants are designed to match your smile’s unique shape and shade so your new and improved grin looks natural and beautiful.
#5 Promotes Natural Function
Dental implants are highly functional. Dental implants restore your natural bite, allowing you to effectively chew your food and speak with clarity and ease.
#6 Prevents Teeth from Shifting
Dental implants can prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting. When there’s a gap in the mouth, remaining teeth tend to shift into different positions, trying to fill the space left behind. With dental implants, your natural teeth remain in their proper spots and support the health of adjacent teeth.
#7 Boosts Your Self-Esteem
Dental implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacements that can also give your self-esteem a serious boost. When you have a set of teeth you love and feel proud of, you no longer feel like cowering in the faces of strangers or avoiding being in front of a camera.
