Here are just some of the benefits of dental implants:

More Attractive Face

When your mouth has a full set of healthy teeth, you are more attractive. Teeth help your lips, cheeks, and the skin on your face become firmer and tighter. When we lose teeth we also lose bone structure. When that happens the skin around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes appear saggy and more wrinkled.

Many people with dental implants feel they look younger and smile more.

Increased Eating Ability

Sometimes when you’re missing teeth you stop eating foods you love because you can’t chew as well, choosing instead to eat softer foods that are easier to chew. This often leads to making food choices that are less healthy and more processed. This can affect your overall health.

Like they say about most things in life, use them or lose them. The same is true of our jawbones. They need to be used. When you eat healthy foods that are harder to chew, it keeps your teeth and jaw bones strong and healthy, too.

With dental implants, they work just like your real teeth. If you take care of them and get regular dental checkups, you can continue to enjoy the benefits of dental implants for the rest of your life. You will have a strong set of teeth able to chew the good foods you love and have been missing.

Implants are Anchored to the Jaw

Anchored to the jaw bone, dental implants are incredibly strong. The great thing is that when you have implants filling the missing tooth hole it strengthens the surrounding teeth.

Osteoporosis, which is the loss of bone, affects both women and men. Did you know the jaw bone can be one of the first places where osteoporosis is found? When we have a full set of teeth we can chew and that will make our jaw bones stronger. Dental implants can even help slow, stop, or sometimes reverse bone loss in adults by keeping the surrounding teeth strong and healthy.
