Are you considering getting dental implants? At the Dental Center of Redondo Beach, we specialize in dental implants and we see their benefits firsthand every day! From the moment they’re fitted, they transform a person’s smile (and confidence!) for the better.
However, we know there are other options out there, which can make it difficult to decide which option is best for your needs. Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering dental implants for tooth replacement.
Dental Implants Can Improve Your Dental Hygiene
If you’re struggling with loose, breaking, or missing teeth, dental implants are a great solution. These problems aren’t just annoying cosmetic issues… they can often lead to serious decay. By getting dental implants to replace damaged, decayed, or unhealthy teeth, you’re improving your oral hygiene and getting a happy, healthy smile.
Other options, such as dentures, can be uncomfortable and awkward. With dentures, it’s easy to be hyper-aware of the dental fixture in your mouth. It’s hard to fit them in a way that is comfortable and natural-feeling. However, dental implants are crafted to perfectly fit your mouth! They are fastened securely to your jaw so they feel just like natural teeth!
They Look Natural
One of the great benefits of dental implants is how natural they look. Dental implants are crafted to perfectly fit in the space of missing teeth and match the natural appearance of the surrounding, remaining teeth. Other dental appliances can look clunky, but dental implants have a smooth, seamless appearance.
They Help with Speech
Do you struggle with speech impediments because of your missing teeth or dental issues? Dental implants may help you on your path to overcoming your speech impediment. Because missing and damaged teeth and other dental issues can hinder your ability to speak, correcting these issues with dental implants can be a step in the right direction.
They Won’t Decay
Natural teeth can decay slowly over time, but dental implants will never degrade or decay! While it’s still necessary to care for your dental implants to maintain a healthy mouth and white smile, you don’t have to worry about your implants causing further problems as long as you take great care of your gums and your remaining natural teeth.
They May Make Your Smile Straighter
Do you struggle with crooked teeth? Since dental implants are connected to your surrounding teeth, getting the implants may actually correct any crookedness in surrounding teeth, giving you a beautiful, straight smile!
Dentures have to be removed daily. Bridges are a longer-term, but ultimately temporary solution. However, if properly cared for, dental implants will never need to be replaced, and definitely don’t need to be removed nightly or with each meal. They’re a permanent solution to your dental problems!
