Dr. Joseph Thompson uses dental implants to replace teeth at his Greeley, CO dentist office. They offer a number of benefits over other tooth replacement options, such as dentures and bridges.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental restorations that are secured with dental implants can function like natural teeth. You will be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Traditional dentures, on the other hand, will slip or shift in the mouth while eating or speaking. Implant secured restorations are securely anchored in the jawbone, providing a stable base for chewing and speaking.
Your new dental implant secured restoration will look and feel just like natural teeth. We will custom make them to match the shape, size, and color of the surrounding teeth. This will provide a seamless and natural looking smile. This is especially important for people who have lost front teeth and their new teeth will significantly impact their overall appearance.
Improved Oral Health
Once the dental implants integrate with your jawbone, they will provide enough stimulation to help prevent bone loss. Maintaining proper jawbone structure is important because it holds the natural shape of your face and helps hold any remaining teeth in place. Also, dental implants do not rely on other teeth to hold the restoration in place like partial dentures and bridges do. This extra stress puts those teeth at a higher risk for decay and infection.
Your dental implants should last you a lifetime. Once they integrate with the bone, they will remain in place as long as you are in good oral health. Proper oral hygiene is key to them remaining healthy and strong for a lifetime. Traditional tooth replacement options like dental bridges and dentures are much less durable only relying on suction, adhesive or remaining teeth to hold them in place.
Dental implant restorations are more comfortable to wear than traditional dentures and bridges. They will not place extra stress on remaining teeth nor will irritate your gums. Your restoration is anchored securely to the implants in jawbone and will not require adhesives or other products to keep them in place.
Since dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth, they are more convenient than other tooth replacement options. They do not require special dietary restrictions and can be cared for just like your natural teeth. Patients can eat their favorite foods and enjoy their favorite activities without worrying about their teeth.
Dental implants can have a significant impact on a patient’s self-confidence. Patients with missing teeth often feel self-conscious about their appearance, and may avoid social situations or hide their smile. Dental implants provide a natural-looking and comfortable solution, helping patients to feel more confident and outgoing.
Missing teeth can make it difficult to pronounce certain letters and sounds. Someone with gaps in their smile may slur or mumble. Dental implants provide a reliable and stable tooth replacement for the tongue and lips, allowing patients to speak more clearly and confidently.
