Are you currently dissatisfied with your smile due to missing teeth? If so, it’s time to make a change for the sake of your confidence and your oral health. Here are five reasons to start the new year with dental implants.
- They Look Like Natural Teeth
Dental implants are anchored to the jaw bone, so they don’t move around like some tooth replacement options do. They are also carefully color-matched to your teeth so they look as attractive and natural as possible.
- They Last for Years
If you take good care of your implants, they could potentially last for up to 25 years. Most tooth replacement options aren’t known to last that long and typically need to be repaired or replaced more frequently.
- They Don’t Compromise Adjacent Teeth
Some tooth replacement options compromise the health of adjacent teeth, but dental implants do not. They do not need to be anchored to adjacent teeth because they are attached to posts that are anchored to the jaw bone and provide impressive durability.
- They Prevent Bone Loss
It’s natural for the jaw bone to degrade after a tooth is lost and the roots are no longer there to provide constant stimulation. Fortunately, dental implants make great replacements for tooth roots and can keep the bone from degrading. If your jaw bone has already degraded and is not dense enough to support a dental implant, you can talk to your periodontist in Newtown, CT, about receiving a bone graft to prepare the site for implant placement.
