the benefits of dental implants

Today’s blog concludes our two-part blog series on the benefits of dental implants (and when it is a suitable alternative to tooth replacement.) 

As an overview, dental implants are prosthetics that are used as a safe and effective way to replace tooth roots and missing teeth with realistic artificial teeth that both have the look and functionality of real teeth. We wanted to take today to delve into the many benefits of dental implants… and why they’re the preferred option of so many patients!

One of the Most Immediate Benefits of Dental Implants? Improved Speech and Appearance

Missing teeth or poorly-fitted dentures can equal lisping, slurred words, or mumbling— as well as self-consciousness for some. Due to the natural fit of dental implants, patients who opt for them find an immediate improvement in both speech and appearance.

Better Functionality For Eating

A point that goes hand-in-hand with speech and appearance is functionality. Rather than dentures getting entrapped in sticky substances or missing teeth making your favourite meats a chore to chew through, one of the benefits of dental implants is the ability to once again enjoy the food you want, when you want.

Unbeatable Convenience 

The combination of their natural look, lifetime-wear, and level of comfort makes dental implants a much more popular option than dentures, especially due to them being a one-time cost for the majority of patients. 

The Gateway to a Healthier Mouth

Dental implants serve as a gateway to a healthier mouth by filling empty tooth sockets, guarding them from degenerating over time; protecting the loss of jawbone density caused by missing teeth; and ensuring that natural teeth do not become misaligned. The result? A healthier mouth for life, with none of the inconvenience that dentures provide.
