If you’ve lost a tooth, you’ve probably noticed that it can have a serious impact on how you look to others, and more importantly, how you feel about yourself. That’s what makes tooth replacement so rewarding for both dentists and patients.
Dental implants in particular are some of the most celebrated tooth replacement options, and if you want to feel your best after having lost a tooth, they can help you to do that. Here are a few ways that dental implants can help to restore your confidence.
Confidence in Your Bite
Sharing meals with the people that you love is one of the best parts of life, but if you’re missing a tooth that can make mealtime a little bit more stressful. It’s common for people who are missing teeth to not get quite as much joy out of eating.
Dental implants can give you back a lot of the bite force you may have lost with your natural tooth. This can make eating much easier, giving you a lot more confidence at mealtime.
Confidence in Dental Implant Durability
Dentures and dental bridges are both fairly durable, but most people need to replace them after a few years, or a decade at most. While that’s nothing to sneeze at, it doesn’t even come close to what dental implants can do.
Around 95% of dental implants are successful at 20 years, and many of them last a lifetime if they’re taken care of well. That means that replacing yours is one less thing that you have to worry about.
Confidence in Your Appearance
Dental implants are made of precisely molded porcelain dental crowns attached to the jawbone via a sophisticated titanium implant. These high-quality materials give dental implants a level of realism that is hard to match with other methods of tooth replacement.
Even missing a single tooth can dramatically change the way you look, and replacing it with a dental implant can give you back a lot of your previous confidence. If you want to look better and feel better, dental implants can do that for you.
