Look and feel like natural teeth
Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth and can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for. Implants function as your own teeth, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods without worry. They look just like natural teeth and don’t feel like you have an artificial tooth in your mouth.
A dental implant is permanently fixed in your mouth, so it won’t move or slip. Unlike removable dentures, you don’t have to worry about them slipping or coming loose. This allows you to speak and chew without constantly worrying about your teeth.
Healthy adjoining teeth are preserved
Dental implants are secured in the jawbone, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. Implants will not decay like natural teeth and do not need to be protected from damage. Your other teeth do not need to be filed down to place the implant.
Allow you to eat any food
Dental implants allow you to eat any food you want. With dentures, you may struggle to enjoy some of your favorite foods, particularly those that require a lot of chewing. Dental implants are securely attached and do not move, eliminating this issue.
Convenient - no special care is needed
Dental implants do not require any special care - you just need to follow good oral hygiene habits and visit your dentist every six months.
Prevent bone deterioration
The roots of your teeth stimulate your jawbone. When a tooth is missing, the jawbone can deteriorate as the bone is no longer receiving stimulation. The jawbone may also recede, changing the shape of your face. Dental implants can prevent bone deterioration by simulating the stimulation of tooth roots.
It can help preserve facial structure
Although it may seem surprising, a dental implant can preserve your facial structure. Bone deterioration is a common side effect of tooth loss because the bone is no longer stimulated when you chew. The dental implant actually replaces the tooth root, which is the part responsible for stimulating the bone and preserving the facial structure.
