You have insurance, you lock up your house and your car, maybe you even have a fancy security or alarm system. You take all the necessary steps to protect your identity, and your family – but what about your smile? No we’re not talking dental insurance or financing, we’re talking about your smile itself. We’re talking about dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium tooth root replacements that are surgically implanted into the gums and allowed to fuse with the jawbone. Dental implants function as anchors for restorations and appliances – crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants are the most recommended tooth replacement solution on the market today, by patients and dentists alike. Not only do dental implants offer unmatched stability for tooth replacements, but they actually function just like a natural tooth root and help preserve the health of surrounding teeth, your bite, and your jawbone.
What are the benefits?
Benefits of replacing missing teeth with dental implants are numerous, and range from health, to functional, to cosmetic.
- Health Benefits: When missing teeth are allowed to remain missing it can have serious consequences for your oral health. Your oral health is a complex system, and when one piece breaks down, the entire system is compromised. Teeth on either side of the gap will begin to shift, rotate, or become lose, which can compromise your bite. Without the support of the tooth root, the underlying jawbone will begin to deteriorate, which is what causes the “sunken face” appearance you see in some patients with missing teeth. Dental implants keep the health of your mouth and jawbone intact, and your oral health system functioning properly.
- Functional Benefits: Dental implants offer unmatched stability for tooth replacements and dental appliances. This stability ensures you will be able to enjoy your favorite foods and speak and laugh with confidence that your smile is secure.
- Cosmetic Benefits: At Fuquay Family Dentistry, we know that appearances aren’t everything. However, we also see the difference in the lives of our patients who decide to replace their missing teeth. Their confidence, happiness, and self-esteem goes through the roof, which brings about noticeable positive changes in all aspects of their lives.
If you’re tired of living with an incomplete smile, or tooth replacements or dental appliances that don’t stay in place, we would love to speak with you about dental implants. Dental implants are strong, secure, long-lasting, and offer unmatched stability for beautiful replacement teeth so you can get back to living a happy life with a big, beautiful smile that shines from ear to ear.
