In our Glendale dental office more and more patients are choosing dental implants to replace missing teeth. There are many reasons that dental implants have become so popular among dental patients of all ages. Let’s learn more about why one might choose dental implants to restore his or her smile.
Dental implants are replacement teeth that actually have replacement roots, as well as the crown above the gum line. Every dental implant is surgically implanted into the patient’s bone tissue—the replacement tooth stays in place permanently.
Here are just some of the reasons to pick dental implants over other replacement teeth:
1. Ease of living
Once the dental implant is in place, you will be able to live your life normally. You can eat all of your favorite foods, drink all of your favorite drinks, and care for your smile as you normally would. Dental implants are easy to live with—you might even forget that they aren’t your natural teeth!
Dental implants are always customized to fit the patient. You never need to worry about your dental implant looking too big, too bright, or fake.
3. Oral health
Because you can floss and brush your smile normally with dental implants, you can keep your mouth clean post-treatment. Additionally, the titanium dental implant root actually helps to bolster your jaw tissue, and prevent jawbone deterioration associated with tooth loss. And, because dental implants are not connected to adjacent teeth (as bridges are, for example), you won’t be putting unnecessary pressure or stress on your natural teeth.
