WHY ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS SO POPULAR FOR TOOTH REPLACEMENT?

Posted by Jack Fan May 18, 2020

While losing a tooth can be an exciting experience as a child, it’s not something to celebrate in adulthood. In fact, it can be an alarming and overwhelming experience. Although you have many options to choose from to replace your missing teeth, one stands above the rest: dental implants in South Austin. This modern dental restoration provides numerous, long-lasting benefits you simply can’t get with dentures or dental bridges. Read on to find out why this advanced way to rebuild your beautiful smile is becoming increasingly popular.

REGAIN A NATURAL LOOK, FEEL, & FUNCTION

Dental implants are designed to be the next best thing to natural teeth. Thanks to their revolutionary design, they can restore a lifelike:

  • Look: Dental implants are crafted out of beautiful dental porcelain and crafted with advanced technology to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Most people find them to be indistinguishable from the rest of their smile!
  • Feel: Since they’re securely anchored below your gumline instead of resting on top of it, you won’t feel them at all as they firmly stay in place while you use them.
  • Function: With dental implants, you can regain roughly 80% biting force. These incredibly durable restorations allow you to eat practically anything, from juicy steaks to crunchy apples!

PERMANENTLY REBUILD YOUR SMILE

If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution to your missing teeth, dental implants may be for you. Other tooth replacement options like dentures and dental bridges begin to lose their functionality and comfort after 10 years or so. On the other hand, you can expect your dental implants to easily last for decades to come. In fact, excellent oral hygiene habits like regular brushing and flossing are all that’s needed to help keep your new smile healthy and functional for a lifetime!

RESTORE BOTH YOUR SMILE & ORAL HEALTH

Choosing to replace your missing teeth with dental implants benefits your oral health just as much as your smile. Dental implants are the healthiest option for your:

  • Gums: Thanks to the biocompatible materials they’re made of and the way they don’t put extra pressure on the gums, dental implants won’t cause irritation or sores on the gum tissue.
  • Natural teeth: Unlike dental bridges, placing dental implants doesn’t require any of your remaining natural teeth to be altered or shaved down.
  • Jawbone and facial structure: Dental implants replace the roots of a missing tooth as well as its crown, which stimulates blood flow in the jawbone like a natural tooth does. Without this stimulation, the jawbone would deteriorate and cause the facial features to look sunken and aged.

No matter how many teeth you’re missing, dental implants can help you rebuild your beautiful, functional, and confident smile! Talk to your South Austin dentist to discover if this modern tooth replacement option is right for you!
