Are Dental Implants Right For You

? Eight Reasons Why Implants Are Superior to Dentures

If you're missing teeth due to aging, disease, an accident or any other cause, you may have heard that dental implants are the current "industry standard" when it comes to tooth replacement. However, as they cost more than other forms of tooth replacement, and since oral surgery is a necessary part of the process, some patients who would clearly benefit from implants prematurely decide that implants "aren't for them." Instead, they opt to "get by" with traditional dentures, often justifying the decision by telling themselves that implants don't really make that much of a difference.

This could not be further from the truth.

Dental implants provide so many advantages over dentures that in many cases, they aren't just the clear choice; they should be the only choice. Here are eight reasons why.

1. Implants look better than dentures.

Dental implants are designed to look exactly like natural teeth. In fact, if your teeth were less than perfect to begin with, they may actually look better than natural teeth.

2. Talking is easier with implants.

People who have dentures often worry about their teeth slipping, or even "falling out." So they tend to keep their mouths closed - which can make it difficult to carry on a conversation. Dentures can also make clicking noises, and even make it difficult to speak clearly because they take up extra space in your mouth. Since implants work just like natural teeth, speaking with them is natural and effortless.

3. Implants feel completely natural.

Even in the best of circumstances, there's no mistaking a denture for a natural part of your mouth. They're held in place with metal or sticky adhesives, or both. Sometimes they're uncomfortable. In some cases, they're even painful. But since implants are held in place by your jawbone, just like real teeth, they feel (and actually are) like a part of your body.

4. You can eat anything with implants.

From apples to corn on the cob, no food is off limits when you have dental implants. Not only are implants secured in place by your actual bone, they restore the strength of your bite. Which means that with dental implants, you're free to eat whatever you want.

5. Implants boost your self esteem.

The moment a person takes a set of dentures out of their mouth and puts them in a glass in the bathroom, chances are, that person feels old. Not to mention unattractive. But with dental implants, your smile can remain as young and vibrant as you feel inside. Knowing you are free to talk, laugh, smile, eat and do whatever comes naturally won't just help you live better. It will also help you feel better about yourself.

6. Implants protect your remaining natural teeth.

Sometimes, in order to properly attach a denture, your dentist will need to "file down" the adjacent teeth - even if they are in perfect health. This can damage those teeth and prevent them from functioning normally. Since dental implants are anchored you're your bone, they don't need to rely on other teeth in your mouth to hold them in place.

7. Implants are designed to last as long as you do.

Dental implants work - over 90% of the time, implant procedures are a success. And the news gets better once dental implants have been placed. If you take care of them, they're designed to remain a part of you for the rest of your life.

8. Implants make it like you never lost your teeth in the first place.

And what could be better than that?

These are eight reasons why dental implants provide so many advantages over dentures - and should be the only choice.
