Dental implants provide many benefits over traditional tooth replacement options; rather than resting above the gums like most prosthetic options, dental implants protect your overall oral health by preventing dental shifting and bone loss. Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider dental implants for your tooth replacement needs:
- Dental implants allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without worry. The secure, permanent hold between the titanium implant and your jaw bone functions just like your natural tooth root, allowing you to eat the foods that you enjoy.
- Your dental implants will look beautiful and natural. Whether you replace one or all of your teeth using dental implants, you will be able to smile confidently knowing that your new teeth look beautiful and natural.
- Dental implants are a highly versatile tool. Whether you want to replace one tooth or many, dental implants can support a variety of different prosthetic attachments to fit your needs. Dental implants can also be used to anchor temporary dentures or orthodontic tools.
- Dental implants preserve the health and appearance of your mouth. When you have missing teeth, the bone beneath your gums can start to recede, causing your mouth and lips to look more sunken in. Extensive bone loss can cause oral health complications, but dental implants naturally stimulate the bone around the teeth, just like your natural tooth’s root would. This stimulation preserves the structure of your oral and facial bones. Additionally, dental implants prevent dental shifting and other problems associated with missing teeth.

While dental implants offer many benefits, they may not be the right tooth replacement solution for everyone. Some patients may require bone grafting or other procedures before having dental implants placed. A consultation with an experienced oral surgeon is the only way to know for sure whether or not dental implants are right for you.
