The Lesser-Known Benefits Of Dental Implants

Today, we’ll take a look at some lesser-known advantages to dental implants for missing, broken, or decayed teeth.

Dental implants behave just like your natural teeth.

This is one of the biggest benefits to having a dental implant installed in your mouth; it restores your full chewing power. Most patients aren’t able to tell the difference between their natural teeth and their implant tooth, so you’ll be able to eat with it as you normally would as well as brush and floss.

Your dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants, unlike other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental bridges, can last a lifetime. The implant is made from durable titanium and integrates right in with your jawbone. Plus, it’s biocompatible, meaning that it isn’t toxic, and your body won’t reject it.

Facial sagging can be an undesirable side effect of bone loss resulting from your missing tooth or teeth. Facial sagging happens when the lower third of your face starts to collapse, gradually closing the distance between your chin and the tip of your nose. This can include increased, excess wrinkles around your mouth, a more pointed chin, and thinning lips. Dental implants can help you avoid this!
