Benefits of Dental Implants
Tooth loss, whether from gum disease, facial trauma, or the need for extraction, is a serious issue. It affects every aspect of your life. Biting and chewing become harder. Your speech suffers. Your smile suffers, and your confidence plummets. Even the health of your jaw is affected. At Winning Smile Dental Group, we replace missing teeth with dental implants. While implants require a more invasive procedure than traditional treatments, they offer a wide array of benefits that restore your quality of life.
Meeting Multiple Needs
Dental implants are a highly versatile and customizable treatment. They can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth. There are even implant options available to help you avoid the need for a bone graft if you do not have sufficient bone mass to support regular implants. Based on your needs, we can design a treatment plan to provide you with the best possible results.
Restoring Your Smile
Tooth loss, particularly toward the front of your mouth, has a drastic effect on the quality of your smile. Dental implants perfectly restore your smile, which also gives you back your confidence. The crowns placed on top of the titanium posts are made from ceramic. This material can be made to match the color of your natural teeth. It also reflects light just like enamel. No one will be able to tell the difference between your implants and your real teeth.
Enjoy All of Your Favorite Foods
Dental implants are strong and stable in your mouth. They do not move around, and they will not slip out of place. You can enjoy all of your favorite foods once again without worry about your teeth coming loose. Because your ability to chew properly is restored, your digestion, and your overall nutrition improves as well.
Speak Confidently Again
Tooth loss can have a significant impact on your speech, causing a lisp or other difficulties. It can be hard for others to understand you. With dental implants, your speech is perfectly restored. Additionally, unlike dentures, you do not need to get used to having something in your mouth. The implants feel just like your natural teeth.
A major complaint about dentures is that they are uncomfortable. They sit directly on your gums, putting pressure on the tissue that it was never designed to support. They can also slip out of place and rub the tissue, which can lead to very painful sores. With dental implants, your crowns are supported on titanium posts, which are held securely in place within your jawbone. There is no pressure placed on your gums nor do you need to worry about sores.
Maintaining Jaw Health
While traditional tooth replacement options restore the functions and aesthetics of your smile, none of them can stop the bone loss that occurs after you lose your teeth. Dental implants can prevent bone loss. As a result, your jaw continues to weaken and change shape, meaning that your restorations need to be periodically replaced. Dental implants are the only option that restores the stimulation of your missing tooth roots. This helps to stop and prevent bone loss in your jaw. Not only does your jaw remain strong and healthy, but your facial shape is also maintained, and your implants do not need to be replaced.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants may be the solution for you. For more information, and to schedule your consultation, call Winning Smile Dental Group today at (224) 307-4977.
