Dental implants act like the real thing
Want a false tooth that is going to feel and even looks just like your natural teeth? Most people do. That’s why they turn to dental implants. One of the biggest benefits of getting dental implants is that it can restore chewing and biting forces back into your smile. You can also brush and floss dental implants just like real teeth and they don’t require special care.
They can last forever
While most dental restorations will need to be replaced eventually, dental implants are unique because they could last you a lifetime as long as you continue to see your Urbana, MD, dentist for routine checkups and maintain good oral health. Implants offer an incredibly high success rate, which also makes them appealing to many adults shopping for the best tooth-replacement option to fit their needs.
Implants prevent bone loss
When one or more teeth are extracted or fall out the jawbone begins to deteriorate in the places where the roots of the teeth are no longer present to stimulate the jawbone. This complication of tooth loss happens rather quickly, with significant volume loss happening in just the first year. That’s why it’s important to get dental implants as soon as possible after losing a tooth because it can take the place of your tooth roots and prevent jawbone loss.
Prevent premature aging
Another major benefit of dental implants is that they give you a complete smile, which supports the muscles of the face. Since it also prevents jawbone loss, it will also prevent any of the changes that would occur to the face as a result of bone loss such as a receding chin and sunken cheeks. In essence, getting a dental implant doesn’t just make your smile look younger it can also prevent wrinkles and lines from forming on your face to help you look younger overall.
