Are Dental Implants Right for You?
For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures, but now dental implants are the preferred option. This technique has many advantages including their natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation for permanent replacement teeth that are made to match your original natural teeth. Unlike teeth treated with traditional root canal therapy, dental implants will never crack or break off. They also do not overload your adjacent teeth like bridges or dentures.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
There are many advantages that make dental implants better than traditional dentures or bridges:
- Improved appearance
- Increased comfort
- Speech improvements
- Easier eating
- Improved self-esteem
- Improved oral health
- Durability and convenience
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent, so they do not need to be removed for cleaning. This also allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without sliding dentures causing discomfort.
Poorly designed dentures can also slip which can cause your to mumble or slur your words. With Dental implants, you can speak with confidence. They also give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, most dental implants will last a lifetime.
There is no substitute for this technology. Dental implants are the ideal replacement for your natural teeth. If you are considering implants, contact Community Dental Center to discuss the considerations and help you make the right decision for you. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Lim.
