The thought of dentistry improving your life may be foreign to you. When facing tooth loss, or living with tooth loss over many years, you might realize how important a healthy smile can be.
A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dentistry asked the question, “Do dental implants improve quality of life?”
As it turns out, most patients in this study report that dental implants do make their lives better – both physically and psychologically. Here are some reasons why patients find dental implants improve their lives.
Dental Implants Provide Better Dietary Options
Because they integrate with your bone, dental implants do not require changes to your diet. You can enjoy all of your favorite foods, including fresh fruits and vegetable, which can pose a challenge when eating with partial or complete dentures.
Implant crowns are durable. Of course, they are not indestructible. Use the same caution you would for your natural teeth.
Dental Implants Are Stable and Reliable
Dental implants bond with your bone and will not move or shift when you speak, laugh, or eat. Unlike dentures, you can count on dental implants to stay put at all times. For patients who have had multiple bridges or partial dentures, this is a welcome change!
Dental Implants Look Natural
Your smile is an important part of your identity and having an esthetic way to replace missing teeth can add confidence in all you do. Not only can you smile confidently, but you can also enjoy dinner parties and celebrations without concern that your teeth will shift or move at the most inconvenient times.
Each dental implant is a custom restoration designed to match your surrounding teeth for a seamless appearance.
