Have missing or damaged teeth? It’s a new year, be a new you. Dental implants are the perfect way to reinvent your smile and become a new you this year. In this article, we’ve got 3 ways implants will help you keep it fresh.
1. Look Younger
Missing teeth can cause your facial structure to collapse and make you look older than you are. When your teeth are healthy, the jawbone is preserved. However, when your teeth are missing, there is nothing to stimulate bone growth, and your jawbone begins to deteriorate. Without the jawbone, your lips and lower part of your face will start to shrivel up. Dental implants are the only teeth replacement option that will preserve the jawbone because they are the only option that replaces your teeth roots and merges with the jawbone. When you choose to get dental implants, you are choosing to preserve your jawbone and your youthful appearance.
2. Keep it Natural
Dental implants are the closest thing you can get to natural teeth. Just as natural teeth are supported by their roots, dental implants are supported by titanium posts. They are secure, stable, and will feel natural. The materials used to make the crowns that are placed on top of the posts also closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
Other teeth replacement options require grinding down teeth or clasps that hook onto your teeth. Options like these won’t last as long and may even be detrimental to the health of your teeth in the long run. Again, dental implants are the best way to keep things as natural as possible, and they can last a lifetime.
3. Function like Normal
With dental implants, you can live an ordinary life. You won’t have to avoid certain foods because implants are secure and made of strong materials. Smiling, laughing, and speaking will be natural because implants are just like your natural teeth. You won’t have to worry about taking off your teeth or losing them because they always stay in place. You will even brush your implants just like you would regular teeth. The only difference is that now you will have a more full, even, and white smile.
Without a doubt, missing and damaged teeth have a big impact on how you look, feel, and live your life. Dental implants really can make a difference in these areas and make you feel like a new person. To find out how you can get dental implants, call Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry at 713-766-1493.
