Whether you are missing one, three, or all of your teeth, dental implants can help you in a variety of ways. No one wants to experience the effects of tooth loss. Not only can it affect your self-esteem, the way you eat, and the way others perceive you, but it can also negatively affect your entire outlook on life.
People are meant to smile. It can degrade our own sense of self-worth when we are put in a position where we feel embarrassed, ashamed, or simply to uncomfortable to smile.
This is why dental implants are becoming increasingly popular, as well as increasingly affordable.
But what are the advantages to dental implants?
Advantage #1: Eat with Ease and Confidence
Missing teeth can have a serious affect on how effectively you are able to eat. This in turn affects your digestion and overall health. Dental implants, however, restore your ability to chew properly by distributing your power to bite across all of your teeth instead of putting the pressure on a few.
Advantage #2: Better Comfort
Dental implants provide the wearer a greater level of comfort that surpasses removable dentures. Dentures can irritate the gums, look unnatural, and offer little stability, as dentures can wobble and move around in your mouth. Dental implants on the other hand, offer maximum stability and stay perfectly fixed in place at all times because they are implanted deep into your jaw.
Advantage #3: Restore Normal Speech
Missing teeth can cause slurred speech or can otherwise impede normal speech patterns. The more consecutive teeth that are missing, the worse this problem can become. IT can negatively affect work, your personal life, and more. Dental implants restore your ability to communicate clearly and effectively by eliminating the void left by missing teeth.
