There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
Improved appearance. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. And because they fuse with the jawbone, they become permanent.
Improved speech. With ill-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip in the mouth causing you to mumble.
Dental implants allow you to speak without worrying about appliances slipping.
Comfort. Because they fuse with your jawbone, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your teeth, allowing you to eat your favourite foods with comfort and ease.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can restore your smile and make you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Unlike tooth-supported bridges, dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth.
Because nearby teeth are not reformed to support the implant, more of your teeth are left untouched, improving long-term oral health.
Individual implants allow easier access in between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Durability. Dental implants are very durable and will last many years. With proper care, many implants last a lifetime.
Convenience. Dental implants get rid of the embarrassment and inconvenience of removing dentures, and also the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
