How Dental Implants Can Boost Your Confidence and Improve Your Overall Health

If you’ve lost a tooth to decay, gum disease, or trauma, you’re not alone. In fact, millions of people in the United States are missing one or more of their permanent teeth. Thanks to ongoing advancements in dental technology, implants have become the most sought-after restorative solution for missing teeth.

So why are so many people choosing dental implants over alternative tooth replacement options like dentures and bridges? Implants offer numerous key advantages, one of the most important being that they improve and protect your oral health. And as the most functional, natural-looking restoration available, dental implants can also make you feel more confident about your appearance.

Read on as Dr. Charley Cheney and our skilled team at Complete Dental Arts explain why choosing dental implants is the way to go if you’re looking to boost your self-confidence and maintain optimal oral health.

Understanding dental implants

Dental implants are considered the gold-standard restorative solution for missing teeth. An implant is a biocompatible titanium post (artificial tooth root) that we insert into your jawbone. To complete the restoration, we cap the implant with a crown (artificial tooth) that’s custom made to blend in with your natural teeth. An implant is a strong, durable, and permanent solution that fuses to your jawbone over time.

Benefits of choosing dental implants

There are many advantages that come with getting dental implants, including:

Increased confidence

Dental implants can improve your self-confidence by restoring a natural-looking smile with a solution that’s permanent. You won’t have to worry about gaps in your smile or deal with the inconveniences of living with removable dentures. 

Restored oral health

When you’re missing teeth, your oral health suffers. As your remaining teeth naturally drift toward the empty spaces, it can cause a misaligned bite, jawbone loss, and difficulties eating normally and speaking clearly. When you replace missing teeth, you protect yourself from developing these common complications. 

In addition, dental implants don’t require shaving down your natural adjacent teeth to accommodate a crown-capping restoration, like bridges do. Dental implants also make it possible for you to continue to take care of your remaining teeth as usual, which means you won’t have to worry about your implant increasing your risk of gum disease or tooth decay.

If you’re missing any of your teeth, dental implants are a great long-term solution that has a 98% success rate.
