Losing a tooth has its drawbacks. Eating becomes more difficult, speaking may be more challenging, and you may be self-conscious about the gap in your smile. For our patients considering tooth replacement, here are 10 great reasons to get dental implants.
1. Dental Implant Tooth Replacements Restore Your Smile Function, Confidence, and Self-Esteem
Your new tooth is designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. We color-match the prosthetic tooth to blend seamlessly with your smile, and each tooth is created using precise imprints of your bite. Nobody will be able to tell you have a dental implant at all!
Restorative dentistry should restore the functionality of your smile in addition to the beautiful appearance of your smile. For a local dentist in Hillsboro, Beaverton, Portland, Tillamook, or Forest Grove you can trust, visit Dr. Skinner for your FREE dental implant consultation.
2. Implants Keep Your Surrounding Teeth from Shifting
When you are missing a tooth, the teeth around the gap start to shift out of place. This shifting can cause bite problems that may lead to pain when you need to eat, as well as the eventual chipping and breaking of the teeth with the improper bite. A dental implant fits perfectly in its spot to keep your smile looking straight and beautifully healthy.
Keeping your teeth from shifting out of place can also keep you from having to pay for orthodontics down the road. For affordable dentistry and a stunning smile, contact us today!
3. Increased Self-Confidence in Your Smile
A gap in your smile can make you feel self-conscious in social situations. Our dental implants give you a full smile that feels natural and looks beautiful. Get your confidence back with a new dental implant.
Digital Smile Design dentistry is perfect for renewing a smile that boosts your self-esteem. Part of designing a new smile may include replacing missing teeth. Find out more about our dental implants, like the All-on-4® Treatment Concept, by visiting our other dental implant pages.
4. Dental Implants Can Last for Life
Our dental implants are made using advanced computer-guided dental technologies to place them surgically and with digital design and high-quality materials. Each implant can last 25 years or longer with proper care. That’s more than twice as long as a traditional dental bridge or crown!
5. Eat Whatever Food You Want, Speak Without Whistling
A dental implant fits nicely with your smile to restore functionality and aesthetics. You won’t need to worry about food getting trapped in the space between your teeth, and you can talk without whistling or sliding your tongue into an odd space.
6. Implants Are Easy to Maintain
Taking care of some types of dental work requires extra care or tools, like flossing thread or denture cleaner. With dental implants, you won’t need to worry about any of these.
You can continue to brush and floss the way you usually would and continue to see your dentist every six months. Keep smiling with less worry with dental implant placement.
7. Your Facial Structure Will Thank You
Tooth loss and bone loss can change the shape of your face over time. Your muscles start to sag when they don’t have the proper bone structure to lift them up. With dental implants, you can have a more youthful appearance.
8. Improve Jawbone Density with Dental Implants
Dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone. The titanium alloy is biocompatible with your jaw, which means the bone is encouraged to regrow and fuses with the implant. Not only will you have improved bone density, but your tooth will feel stable and natural.
9. Implant Dentures Are More Comfortable
For our patients who need partial or full-arch dentures, dental implants can provide a secure and stable support for permanent dentures. You won’t have to feel embarrassed about slipping or sliding dentures with implants or the All-on-4® Treatment Concept.
10. Live a More Relaxed and Stress-Free Life
Without having to worry about denture adhesive or flossing underneath a dental bridge, you can relax more. You already have a lot to worry about. Dental implants can make your life simpler when you don’t need to stress over your ability to chew or speak.
