4 Ways Dental Implants Will Improve Your LifeTuesday, March 1st, 2016
Living without teeth or even with removable dentures can be a real challenge. From dealing with a sad, “sunken-in” appearance to not being able to eat the foods you love — you may understand the troubles. At Advanced Smile Arts in Danville, IL, we are highly trained in advanced tooth replacement procedures that can allow you to achieve the beautiful, functional smile you have been dreaming of. If you want to ditch your old, ill-fitting removable denture or regain a full, beautiful smile for the first time, consider dental implants. There are four great ways dental implants will improve your quality of life:
- Dental implants will restore your chewing power.
Did you know that dental implants are designed to help you regain the chewing abilities that you have lost? While removable dentures offer some degree of chewing power, dental implants replace almost 100 percent of your natural chewing ability. Because they are integrated into the very foundation of your mouth, implants are strong and designed to allow you to eat whatever you want! If you are currently living with dentures, you may have been wishing for this ability. With dental implants, you can have it back.
Being able to eat whatever you want also means avoiding malnutrition and maintaining great overall health. See #3 for more information about how implants can help you stay healthy.
- Implants will help you look your best.
We craft all of our replacement teeth to look as natural as possible. However, dental implants are special because they actually become part of your mouth. What is more natural-looking than strong, secure, beautiful teeth?
Implants can also help you avoid looking very old, sick, or “sunken-in.” By maintaining a full mouth of teeth (real or prosthetic), you look years younger and healthier. Dental implants can offer this benefit to you.
- Implants will ensure good lifelong oral health.
Unlike removable dentures, implants are designed to become a permanent part of your mouth. After they are inserted into your gums and allowed to fuse to your jawbone, they will last for decades. Because of this, they discourage jawbone deterioration and keep surrounding natural teeth in their proper places. Implants provide stability for the entire mouth, while the use of removable dentures (full or partials) may lead to continued jawbone deterioration.
Implants also promote a healthy mouth because they are easy to clean. While dentures need to be removed for regular cleaning and maintenance, dental implants can (and should!) be brushed and flossed like normal. This convenience decreases the likelihood of gum disease and other infections. Removable dentures are also known for harboring bacteria underneath the gum mold if cleaned improperly — with dental implants, this isn’t a concern.
- Dental implants will increase your confidence.
We understand how troublesome removable dentures can be. While they are a great solution for some patients, they just don’t work well for others. Dentures can slip and slide around in your mouth or even pop out! Dental implants are designed to be reliable and secure — you won’t have to worry about them moving around in your mouth at all. Implants will eliminate the anxiety you feel about your dentures and allow you to live a confident, stress-free life. Combine that with the benefits listed above and there is nothing stopping you from living a strong, healthy life!
