Has it been years since you really enjoyed your mealtimes, thanks to adult tooth loss, or even an ill-fitting dental prosthetic? Over time, once great-fitting dentures can begin to feel uncomfortable as changes to the jaw occur with aging. The great news is that you no longer have to settle for either an incomplete smile or a poorly functioning denture. Dental implants provide a stable and secure way to complete one’s smile, allowing for increased confidence and comfort, and that can mean the difference between simply eating, and actually enjoying your meals again!
Don’t Settle for an Incomplete or Poorly Functioning Smile
When it comes to the smile, even a single lost tooth can begin to create problems. That’s because when a tooth is gone, remaining teeth tend to shift to try to fill the gap that was created. Over time, this can lead to fairly dramatic alignment problems, that might be embarrassing, cosmetically, but could also lead to jaw discomfort or even teeth grinding. Fortunately, dental implants help to prevent all these side effects of tooth loss, by permanently completing the smile.
Enjoy Comfort and Confidence with a Stable Dental Implant
Another benefit of choosing a dental implant is that it is designed to replace both yoru missing tooth and its corresponding tooth root. Implants are the only prostheses that serves both function, and this is important both in how it stabilizes a replacement tooth, but perhaps more importantly because the mimic tooth root helps to supply nutrients to the jaw as one chews.
