3 Reasons To Use Dental Implants To Get Your Dream Smile

Dental implants can transform your smile, giving you the ability to flash perfect white teeth whenever you laugh or talk. You may want to consider implants if you experience constant mouth pain, tooth loss, and periodontal disease. Sometimes, the factors that affect the loss and quality of your natural teeth are beyond your control due to genetics or injury. With dental implants, you can reduce your oral pain, promote the health of your oral tissues, and experience a boost in confidence. Here are three reasons to use dental implants to get your dream smile.

Caring for dental implants is simple.

Maintaining the beautiful white smile that you get with dental implants is simple and easy. As with natural teeth, the maintenance routine consists of brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and visiting your dentist twice a year for regular cleanings. Your dental implants are stain resistant, but it is still important to stimulate your other oral tissues and to keep them clean to ward off infection.

Caring for your mouth when you have dental implants is very cost effective and helps to promote your oral health in the long run. You do not have to worry about developing tooth decay or cavities, and as long as you keep up your oral hygiene routine, your risks of gum infection and bad breath are also reduced.

Dental implants combat bone loss in your jaw.

If you suffer from tooth loss, then getting dental implants to replace your natural teeth is good not only to help you chew, speak, and smile, but also to safeguard the bones of your jaw. Natural tooth loss is usually accompanied by bone loss in your jaw bone, leading to instability and pain.

Bones require constant stimulation in order to remain healthy and to replenish cells as they wear out. Dental implants are the only type of tooth replacement that bond with the jaw bones, providing direct stimulation whenever you chew food, talk, or smile; this interaction helps to keep your jaw bone healthy and reduces your incidence of bone loss.

Your remaining natural teeth are not affected.

Dental implants replace teeth you have lost without adversely affecting any of your remaining natural teeth. Your dentist seamlessly matches your remaining natural teeth, blending in your implants to produce a great smile. Dental implants do not rely on neighboring tissues for support and are placed firmly into your gums and jaw, meaning that they do not take away from support tissues that work with your natural teeth. Thus, your remaining teeth are not at risk of infection or becoming loose due to gum recession. (For more information, contact Christopher L. Schneider, DMD)
