If you’re bothered by a missing tooth or teeth, a dental implant is the perfect solution. Missing teeth and gaps not only affect your comfort and the appearance of your smile, but can also have negative effects on your overall oral health. Fortunately here at Apex Endodontics, our expert staff are able to treat missing or damaged teeth with dental implants. If you’re a candidate for dental implants, you’re likely already familiar with some the negative impacts of lack of proper treatment. We want to offer you the benefits of the proper form of treatment, dental implants.
Dental Implants Will Improve Your Oral Health
Gaps between teeth can lead to shifting of other teeth and increase the risk of injury, infection, decay and more in those teeth and gums. Having a full set of teeth allows each tooth to protect the other teeth. Leaving gaps may also lead to a weakened jaw and increased risk of bone loss. A dental implant helps to preserve healthy teeth and eliminate the risk of dental decay.
Dental Implants Allow You to Eat What You Want
Some foods require a full set of teeth to enjoy. When you have gaps between your teeth, there are a variety of foods that you are unable to consume. Because dental implants function in the same way as normal teeth, there are no limitations as to what you’ll be able to eat. So go ahead and enjoy those foods that will get stuck between perfect teeth–just make sure to floss!
Dental Implants Will Give You Confident & Improve Your Quality of Life
When your smile is incomplete, it can be tough to want to show that smile to the world. People with gaps or missing teeth tend to smile less than their peers with full sets of teeth. Everyone deserves to have a healthy, beautiful smile that will give you the confidence that will positively impact all areas of your life. Dental implants can also improve your speech and overall self-image. Best of all, dental implants look completely natural, so no one will be able to tell that they aren’t your natural teeth.
Dental Implants Are Easy To Care For & Long Lasting
The “roots” of your dental implant can last for a lifetime, while dental crowns often last up to 15 years. This means you’ll enjoy long-term oral health benefits. Since dental implants function just like normal teeth, you’ll only need to care for them the same way you care for your regular teeth. Your dental implants won’t come with the inconvenience of extra care!
