Missing teeth cause embarrassment as well as difficulty with chewing and talking. At River View Smile Center, we have many tooth replacement options including dental implants. The rumors about dental implants cause many people hesitation. Keep reading to learn the top four reasons you should consider dental implants today.
No One Will be Able to Tell
We love the realistic look of dental implants. Unless you tell someone – no one will know that you have them. We customize the appearance of your implants so they look identical to your other teeth. With the titanium screw ‘roots’ in your mouth fusing to your jawbone, no one will be able to tell that you have crowns or bridges in place of your natural teeth.
Implants Stimulate Your Jawbone
When you lose teeth, your jawbone doesn’t get the stimulation it needs. This causes the jawbone to disintegrate, which could cause the ‘sagging face’ that is so characteristic of older people. Dental implants, however, mimic the look and feel of your natural tooth roots. The titanium even fuses with your jawbone, giving it the stimulation it needs. You don’t have to worry about losing jawbone or loss of your facial structure with dental implants.
Get a Long Life out of Your Artificial Teeth
Losing your natural teeth means a loss of durability in your mouth. Traditional bridges and partial dentures offer a great solution, but they last for an average of 10 years, depending on how you use them. Dental implants offer the closest thing to your natural teeth and with proper care, can last 20 years or more.
Don’t Worry About Slipping or Clicking Sounds
Implants hold your artificial teeth securely in place. Whether you have one missing tooth or several, we have solutions to replace your missing teeth without the risk of slipping or clicking sounds. Whether you opt for a denture or bridge replacement, the implants hold the artificial teeth in place allowing you to talk, chew, and smile with ease.
Dental Implants Don’t Require Special Care
Once the dental implants are in place, they don’t require special care. You treat them just as you would your natural teeth – brushing twice a day and flossing at least once. Typically, patients can consume the same foods and have close to the same biting capabilities they had with their natural teeth.
