Here are the many reasons people are saying “yes” to implants.
While there are many ways to replace missing teeth, more and more adults dealing with tooth loss are turning to our Bolingbrook, IL, family dentists Dr. Rani Seeth, Dr. Prabha Singh and Dr. Manju Suresh for dental implants. Wondering why dental implants have become the most popular way to replace missing teeth? Here are just some of the reasons why,
They Look and Feel Like Real Teeth
You’re going to be hard-pressed to find a tooth replacement option that looks and feels as close to the real thing as a dental implant. Since implants replace the entire tooth, from root to crown, you will feel fully confident being able to smile, chew, eat and talk without worrying about your implant. No one will be able to tell the difference either.
They Can Last the Rest of Your Life
The implant itself is placed into the jawbone where the titanium post fuses together with the jawbone. This makes it an incredibly long-lasting tooth replacement option that you’re more than likely never going to need to replace. Dental implants are for life, as long you maintain good oral hygiene and visit your Bolingbrook, IL, dentist every six months for checkups and cleanings.
They Support the Facial Structure
Untreated tooth loss can lead to jawbone loss, which in turn can cause the face to sag and lose its shape. It’s important to preserve your natural facial structure by providing your cheeks and bones with support. One of the best ways to do this is through dental implants. They can fill those spaces in your mouth and preserve your smile without affecting neighboring teeth. This can prevent sagging and premature wrinkles and lines from forming.
They Prevent Drifting Teeth
Another reason you’ll want to replace missing teeth is that you will need to fill those gaps in order to prevent natural teeth from shifting into those spaces. If you don’t place a dental implant or tooth in the missing tooth’s place, eventually the adjacent teeth will start to shift toward these openings. This can lead to further gaps between teeth, crowding and crookedness.
