6 Reasons to Smile About Dental Implants
Dental Implant Awareness Month: What’s Your Reason to Smile?
This year’s theme of Dental Implant Awareness Month is, “What’s your reason to smile?”
The mission of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry aims to empower individuals considering dental implants through education and celebrate those who are already living a life full of smiles with their dental implants.
Dental implants are the most comfortable and permanent solution to replacing one or more missing teeth.
This is because dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that actually mimics your natural teeth.
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown, if you were to compare natural human teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’d see they are basically the same.
Both implants and natural teeth have a crown (the visible part above the gumline used to chew food), and both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw.
The difference is that a dental implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints, and the U.S. Army for its tanks.
So let’s not waste any more time and get to it, here’s why dental implants are widely considered the healthiest option for replacing one or more missing teeth…
6 Reasons to Smile About Dental Implants
1. Eat The Foods You Love
When you are missing one or more teeth you probably have to avoid certain foods, like many fruits, veggies, nuts, or meats.
Since dental implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, you’ll have no need to avoid the foods you love!
2. Dental Implants Look & Feel Like Natural Teeth
Dental implants are designed to fuse with your jaw bone, the bone actually continues to grow around the titanium implant.
This is the primary reason why they are considered the #1 permanent solution to replacing one or more missing teeth.
3. Speak with Confidence
Can you imagine having your dentures fly out of your mouth at the dinner table? Or in a work meeting?
People who wear dentures often report difficulty speaking, with dental implants there’s no such worry.
Implant restore both your smile and your self-confidence, they’re securely anchored in your mouth, so they won’t slip or move unexpectedly when you talk.
4. Dental Implants Preserve Facial Structure
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that actually helps to stimulate new bone growth and prevent bone loss.
Have you ever noticed that “sunken-in” look around the mouth of people who have worn dentures for a long time?
That’s due to bone loss when you lose a tooth, your jawbone actually erodes. And dentures only make it worse.
Dental implants help patients retain their natural facial structure, shape, and smile.
5. Dental Implants Are Virtually Worry-Free
Don’t get the wrong idea, you will still need to take care of your dental implant(s) – and the rest of your teeth & gums!
With dental implants, you can floss and brush just like you normally would. Dental implants are very durable, with proper care they can last a lifetime.
6. Dental Implants Protect Healthy Teeth
When affixing a partial denture or anchoring a bridge, sometimes that requires the grinding down of teeth directly next to the missing tooth in order to ensure a proper fit.
Dental implants don’t require the grinding down of adjacent teeth to anchor bridges or attach partial dentures. A dental implant is surgically anchored into the jaw and does not negatively impact the surrounding teeth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for decades, they are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and they restore confidence & change lives!
