Have you been thinking about replacing a missing tooth? Maybe you’ve done some research and like the idea of dental implants because you’ve learned that they’re the replacement that’s closest to the form, function, and appearance of a natural tooth.
If you’re ready to do something about the gaps in your smile, you couldn’t find a better solution than dental implants offered by your Winston-Salem, NC dentist. The obvious benefit of dental implants is that you can say goodbye to the noticeable gaps in your smile.
Unexpected Benefits of Dental Implants
There are also benefits to dental implants that are not as obvious, but have just as much impact on your quality of life.
A More Youthful Facial Appearance
The most obvious improvement with dental implants is that you have a complete, healthy smile, with no noticeable gaps. When all your teeth are present, they support and fill out your facial features like your lips and cheeks.
Another benefit of replacing missing teeth with dental implants is that they help keep your jawbone strong and healthy. Long-term tooth loss that leads to bone loss also alters the contours of your face. Since dental implants support a healthy jawbone, you don’t have to worry about a drawn, sunken, or aged facial appearance.
Improved Comfort When Chewing
If you’ve had missing teeth for a while, you know that chewing certain foods is uncomfortable. You’ve probably gotten pretty adept at shifting food around in your mouth so you can chew without pain.
Dental implants restore about 90 percent of lost chewing function, so you’ll be happy to know that you can go back to enjoying all the delicious and nutritious foods you’ve denied yourself for so long.
The oral health benefits that dental implants offer are numerous, but most importantly, knowing you have a complete smile and a full set of healthy teeth restores and renews your self-confidence.
Imagine how great it will feel to laugh and smile without worrying that everyone is looking at the gaps in your mouth. You'll notice that others are drawn to you because your smile exudes happiness and confidence.
