If you’ve lost a tooth or two over time, your confidence was probably lost along with them. You have several options to fill the space, but only one treatment looks and feels like a real tooth. Dental implants offer unmatched cosmetic benefits. Here’s why they are worth the investment.

Look Like Real Teeth

Traditional tooth prosthetics only treat the surfaces of teeth above the gum line. Although they are effective, they have their limitations. A dental implant is unique because it mimics the entire tooth from the root up. 

A titanium post is surgically placed into your jawbone to serve as a new root. Your bone will fuse to it, offering unmatched support and stability. It will be hidden below your gums while supporting a customized restoration made from all-ceramic materials to match the appearance of your natural teeth. It will blend in seamlessly, so only a trained dental professional will know it is there.

Prevent Wrinkles and Sagging Skin

Tooth loss causes your jaw to deteriorate by up to 25% within the first year of missing a tooth. It will continue to shrink as time passes, changing the shape of your face. Bone loss can also cause wrinkles and sagging skin, making you look years older than your chronological age. 

A dental implant is the only method of stopping bone loss because the post stimulates new growth. You can look 10 years younger by filling the gaps in your smile with dental implants and preserving your jaw’s density.

Unmatched Stability

You’ll never have to worry about your new teeth moving around in your mouth. They will be anchored to your jaw to restore up to 70% of your biting force. You will never experience any slipping or irritation.

Long-Lasting Results

Your dazzling new smile can last for decades with the right care, like brushing and flossing. Dental implants have over a 95% success rate. They can thrive for 30 years or more to enjoy a youthful smile that lasts.

Enhanced Professional Image

An attractive smile is associated with youth, confidence, and intelligence, which are essential qualities in any profession. Improving the appearance of your smile can enhance your professional image, which just might lead to new career opportunities.

Don’t settle for outdated methods when replacing your lost teeth. Dental implants are the next best thing to what nature gave you.
