The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are an effective way of replacing teeth. Every year dentists in America place over 5 million implants in a year. Their popularity can be attributed to the plethora of benefits they offer which other options do not. If you’ve lost a tooth, here’s how dental implants in Plano, Texas, can help you smile again.

1. They’re Versatile

Full dentures, bridges, and partial dentures are limited in regards to the damage they can repair. Because of this reason, your treatment options will depend on the number of teeth you’ve lost. Implants, on the other hand, are incredibly versatile.

· If you’re trying to replace a single tooth, they can be fitted into place with a crown

· If you’re trying to replace more than one tooth, they can be replaced with a bridge

· If you’re trying to replace all your teeth, a full denture can do the job.

This enables a dentist in Plano, Texas, to design the perfect teeth replacement option for you.

2. They’re Comfortable

Dental implants are fitted directly into your jawbone. This stimulates the root of a tooth and gives the implant support and strength. When the healing process starts, the jawbone grows and surrounds the titanium rod in the jaw. This holds it firmly into place. Because of the added stability, an implant feels exactly like a tooth. Other options can’t create the feeling of a root which is why they don’t feel natural.

An implant ensures that the denture is firmly locked in one place. This gets rid of the discomfort that comes because of loose dentures.

3. It’s Easy to Speak with Implants

Our teeth play a crucial role in helping us form certain sounds. When you lose certain teeth, their absence can cause a shocking difference in the way you speak. In the same way, a loose denture can also slide or move out of position as you start to speak, which will cause you to mispronounce a few words. A dental implant can fix both of these problems.

The implants in your mouth can be a strong surface for your tongue to press against when you’re speaking. Because of this reason, you can speak much more confidently with the help of dental implants.

4. You Can Eat Your Favorite Foods Again

If you’ve lost a few molars, it’s likely that you know the huge difference you can feel when you’re trying to chew foods. When you get an implant, that gap is filled, and chewing starts to feel completely normal again. Moreover, since an implant is rooted completely into your jawbone, implants don’t have the same restrictions that dentures do.

You can eat anything you want to – the denture isn’t coming off its place.
