We found a great article about the benefits of dental implants.
From the article:
Missing teeth are nothing to smile about. Putting vanity or aesthetics aside, missing teeth can cause a number of long-term issues — including bone loss. Yet, an estimated 140 million American adults live with one or more missing teeth. Over time, missing teeth can cause the face to loose definition and have a drawn in, distorted look, caused by the loss of bone and natural shape.
With the advancements in dental Implants over the years, there’s one less reason to live with the discomfort — and potential problems — of missing teeth. Dental implants prevent additional bone loss, give bone height and add definition to the face. And, today’s dental implants are so amazing, with proper care, they can practically last forever. It’s almost impossible to tell the difference between a dental implant and the patient’s own teeth.
With dental implants, denture wearers no longer have to contend with slippage, wobbling, discomfort and in many cases, pain. Without teeth, the underlying bone deteriorates and the denture no longer fits properly.
Dental implants are the most advanced method to replace missing teeth, save bone structure and improve the quality of life for denture wearers.
