3 Reasons People Love Their New Dental Implants
Dental implants are widely considered the next best thing to having your own natural teeth. Why? Because they provide better results compared to other restorative treatments used to replace or repair missing teeth. Compared to bridges or removable dentures, dental implants are associated with higher patient satisfaction rates when it comes to appearance and functionality.
Here at Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, we love seeing our patients leave our office with the self-confidence that comes with having a beautiful, healthy smile. Imagine talking, smiling, chewing, laughing and enjoying all of your normal everyday activities without ever worrying about your teeth.
A single dental implant replaces the actual tooth root, becoming permanently fused to the jawbone. This artificial root serves two main purposes: it anchors the custom porcelain restoration and prevents future bone loss by stimulating new bone growth. Best of all, implants have a long track record of reliable and successful outcomes, and when properly cared for, can last for decades! Here are three things that our patients love most about their new dental implants.
Natural looking replacement teeth
Aesthetics are an important aspect to any type of cosmetic dentistry treatment, and dental implants are no exception. The crowns that attach to the titanium implant are carefully molded and sanded to mirror the shape and size of your surrounding teeth, providing the most natural look possible. Where dentures or bridgework may look noticeably “off,” a dental implant will have the exact same hue and coloration as your natural tooth enamel. Unless you tell your friends you’ve had dental work, it is unlikely they’d ever know that the restorations aren’t your real teeth.
Dental implants are comfortable
Dental implants remove all of the inconveniences and anxieties associated with removable dentures. They look, feel and function just like natural teeth because they are fused with the jawbone. Implants are also much more comfortable, and you’ll never have to worry about your replacement teeth slipping out of place while eating, laughing or talking.
Big confidence boost
One of the most life-changing aspects reported by patients is their new-found confidence to not only smile proudly, but to engage in a wide range of social activities they had avoided before. With dental implants, you can speak easily and with confidence; you can chow down on your favorite foods without hesitation, and you can feel secure in the knowledge that implants help maintain good oral health. Plus, caring for dental implants is no different than that of your natural teeth. With regular flossing, brushing and dental cleanings, your implants may last a lifetime!
