Many patients with dental implants experience the following benefits:

 

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Because implants are designed to fuse with bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and denture.

 

  • Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip and wobble within the mouth, causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak with comfort and confidence. You can also stop worrying about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.

 

  • Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures or partial dentures.

 

  • Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

 

  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile, and help you feel better about yourself.

 

  • Improved oral health. Dental implants don't require reducing (cutting down) adjacent teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving your long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow you to floss between the implant and adjacent teeth, improving oral hygiene.

 

  • Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. They require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

 

  • Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.

 

  • Reliable.   The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.

 

  • Great value.   Dental implants are also a great value for your investment.  You will be getting a product that you will be using 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year, probably for many, many years of your life.
