Dental Implants Improve Oral Health

When your mouth is missing even a single tooth, it can have adverse effects. A gap can cause your other teeth to shift and can leave surrounding teeth and gums more susceptible to injury and tooth decay or disease. It can also cause your jaw to weaken and promote bone loss. The procedure doesn’t require any grinding or adjustment of other, healthy teeth, as in some bridge or partial denture solutions. And as we remind all of our Winter Springs patients, your oral health is a direct reflection on your overall health and wellbeing. Periodontal disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

Dental Implants Allow You to Eat What You Want

Since dental implants function like your own teeth, you are able to enjoy your favorite foods anytime you like. Corn-on-the-cob? Popcorn? Steak? There are no limitations, so you don’t have to succumb to soft oatmeal and mashed potatoes! And you don’t have to worry about removing them, like dentures. You eat, drink and sleep with them just as you would without them.

Dental Implants Give You A Confident Smile

Most people who have lost a tooth tend to hold back their smiles, changing to a toothless grin for pictures and adjusting the way they speak so as not to reveal their gap. Studies have shown that your smile can positively impact your life in many ways, including being happier, getting a job, or even getting a date! You deserve to have a confident, worry-free smile that allows you to express yourself. And with the natural look of dental implants, no one will know you have them!

Dental Implants Improve Your Quality of Life

With dental implants versus other tooth replacement options, you maintain a higher quality of life in a number of ways. Your dental implants function like real teeth so you care for them with brushing and flossing. No taking them out or soaking them like you would have to do with dentures. You won’t have to worry about the metal clasps of your partial dentures showing or rubbing inside your mouth either. You also will smile, chew, and speak more naturally and more comfortably.

Dental Implants Are Easy To Care For

Dental implants are long-lasting. The titanium screw used to simulate the tooth’s root will last a lifetime and the crown built on top of the screw lasts for a long time too.. During this time, you’ll be taking care of your dental implant just like you do your other teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. You’ll only need to visit our office for your regular cleanings and exams to maintain good oral hygiene.
