How Can Dental Implant Help You?
Imagine having the confidence to smile, speak, and eat knowing that your teeth are strong, healthy, and beautiful. If you’re missing teeth, dental implants can give you all of these benefits and more! Whether you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of your natural teeth, Dr. Bedich and his team at our practice near Warren, OH, can help restore your smile with natural-looking dental implants.
Dental implants are quickly becoming the number one choice for tooth replacement because they:
Provide a Secure, Long-lasting Solution
Dental implants offer the only tooth replacement option that is directly attached to the jawbone, creating a secure hold so you can rest assured knowing your teeth won’t slip out of place. While the implant post is designed to last a lifetime with proper care, the prosthesis (crown, bridge, or denture) will need to be replaced in time as normal wear occurs. Doing so will refresh the appearance of your smile and keep it shining bright.
If you have gaps in your smile due to missing teeth or you have tooth replacements that tend to come loose, certain foods may be too difficult to chew. Because dental implants don’t move, they restore your chewing function, allowing you to eat foods that may have previously been off-limits, such as raw vegetables, steak, or chewy snacks.
Protect Your Dental Health
Dental implants help protect your dental health in many ways. Other types of tooth replacement options–such as dental bridges–depend on surrounding teeth for support. But because dental implants are independently attached to the jawbone, the surrounding teeth are not affected and they provide the additional benefit of maintaining jawbone density. Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants also prevents your natural teeth from shifting out of proper alignment. And eliminating the gaps in your smile where food and bacteria can get trapped, reduces your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
Enhance Your Confidence
Whether you choose a single crown, bridge, or full-arch denture, your implant-supported replacement teeth will look very natural. Replacing your missing teeth will not only help you feel better about yourself but will make you want to show off your beautiful smile. You’ll gain confidence when speaking with others, knowing that your teeth are the best they can be. And because your implants help maintain the shape of your jaw, they’ll help prevent premature wrinkling that often comes as a result of missing teeth.
Simplify Your Dental Care Routine
Unlike other tooth replacement options that require special equipment for proper cleaning and messy adhesives for removable options like dentures, dental implants eliminate theses hassles. In fact, they can be brushed and flossed like your natural teeth and they don’t require any additional equipment or products.
