How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Confidence

A good smile is good for your confidence, so it is understandable that people become sensitive about things like missing teeth and discoloration. These confidence killers are treatable with dental implants. Dental implants replace missing teeth and restore full, normal function to a patient’s mouth. Whether an accident or disease took some of your teeth, an implant can restore your smile and more. Let’s look at how these implants work, then it will be easy to understand how and why they boost your confidence by helping you go back to eating, smiling, and drinking comfortably just as you did before tooth loss.

The 411 on Dental Implants

A dental implant is a replacement tooth that imitates the look and root structure of a real tooth. The tooth will look like a real tooth, and it’s designed to blend with your existing teeth. The individual color variations in each patient’s mouth can be difficult to match. However, many places make custom teeth that matches the patient’s mouth. The implant also replaces a natural tooth’s root with a titanium screw.

A missing tooth or teeth is more than just a matter of appearance. Those missing teeth can cause a significant amount of bone loss in the jaw. Teeth next to gap of the missing tooth can move, which can lead to some serious dental issues in the future.

Dental implants do have a couple of limitations in applying them. The patient’s gum tissue needs to be healthy. If you have gum disease, you will need to get that treated before having implant surgery. Some additional prep work may be needed, depending on the condition of the patient’s mouth. Obviously, a damaged tooth would have to be extracted first. Less obviously, gum disease damages bone over time. A patient with gum disease may need a bone graft before getting the implant. Extractions usually do not add much time to the implant process, but gum disease, and the need for a bone graft, can add weeks or months from the time of diagnosis to the time the implant can be put in place.

The experts at Smile Dental group can evaluate your situation and tell you if a dental implant is possible or if you need other dental work firstEither way, getting dental implants is a great confidence booster for several reasons.

Delivering a Boost in Confidence

A good dental implant will look and feel just like a natural tooth. The implanted teeth will allow you to eat normally because they are synthetic teeth. Those missing teeth may also make it harder to eat and speak naturally. Those two issues can undermine a person’s self-confidence and make social occasions a bit uncomfortable.

Smiling is a crucial part of communication, so if you are worried about a smile that shows off missing and rotting teeth, implant surgery can deliver a major psychological boost. Dentures can slip and they may also look less realistic than good implants. Because implants look like your natural teeth, you do not need to be self-conscious about showing off some fake-looking teeth.

You don’t need to waste mental energy on any unusual care routine. Implants can be brushed and flossed around, just like natural teeth.

Someone with numerous missing and damaged teeth may feel like dentures are the way to go. Even if extracting your remaining teeth is a good idea, implants may be better than dentures. While dentures have their uses, they also slip, and they need regular, specialized care. Good dentures still will not come close to lasting 25 years, which is a realistic life span for dental implants. Implants also allow an individual to speak, eat, and drink without the worry of something happening to their dentures. It can also be a little harder to speak naturally while wearing dentures.

Worried about your oral health and the expenses that might be coming? Dental Implants eliminate some of that worry. They last for decades, which helps to eliminate the financial worry of having to pay for something else in several years. You most likely won’t have any problems with the implants because the success rate of this surgery is about 90% to 95%.

Restore Confidence and Preserve Oral Health with Dental Implants

Dental implants protect your long-term oral health and restores a person’s self-confidence by providing a natural-looking smile and more. They work by replacing the natural tooth and root to provide a long-lasting artificial replacement that looks like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, Smile Dental can help.
