When disease, trauma or other factors result in tooth loss, there are several cosmetic dentistry solutions for restoring both functionality and appearance. However, none offer the long-term benefits provided by dental implants.
Whether you are missing a couple of teeth or need a full upper and lower arch, dental implants are a superior option, and preferred by many patients here at Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry.
Here are five reasons why you should consider cosmetic dental implants.
Perhaps the star quality of dental implants is that they look, feel and function very much like your natural teeth. Implants will never slip out of place like dentures because their titanium posts fuse to your jaw bone, providing a solid anchor for custom-made replacement teeth. Implants are practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and allow you to chew, speak, smile and laugh with total confidence.
There is a common misconception that tooth replacement with dental implants is done purely for aesthetics, when they can actually help prevent bone loss. This is because your jawbone, which is a living tissue, will begin to atrophy after tooth loss. When the dental implant is placed and fuses with the bone, this process of bone reabsorption is halted. By preserving strong, healthy bone tissue, facial contours remain the same, and will not collapse or appear sunken.
You care for implants just as you would your natural teeth. Maintain good oral hygiene with daily brushing and flossing and visits with your dentist every 6 months for a professional check-up and cleaning. Unlike dentures, you don’t need to soak them overnight or worry about messy adhesives. While implants can not get cavities, their stability can be compromised by periodontal disease.
Dental implants restore your bite and chewing ability. They eliminate the discomfort and anxiety associated with dentures, which can affect speech and make eating certain foods a real challenge. Best of all, you’ll have your smile back and more confidence to fully embrace life.
For most patients, dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Whereas other types of restorations like bridges and dentures need to be replaced every so often, teeth implants can last for 25+ years when properly cared for. This durability and longevity makes them an excellent long-term investment.
