You may have seen the advertisements on TV or heard them on the radio. The commercials say that dental implants can greatly improve your overall dental health and give you confidence back that you may not have had in a while. Is that true? Can dental implants boost your confidence? Keep reading. We have some information for you about dental implants, and how much better they can make you look and feel.
What Are Dental Implants?
In the past, dentures were used to add teeth to a jaw where teeth were missing. In order to get dentures, you would have to have your remaining teeth pulled, so that an upper plate or a lower plate can be fitted. While dentures improve the overall look of your teeth, they do not help keep your jaw healthy. Instead, they can lead to deterioration of your jawline over time, and a loss of bone.
Rather than replacing an entire set of teeth, dental implants can replace one tooth at a time, permanently. You wouldn't need to take them out. You wouldn't have to try and eat around your dentures. Instead, dental implants look and act like your real teeth. No one can really tell the difference between a dental plan and real teeth. The best part? Dental implants save your jaw from decay, because they screw into your gumline, which helps to keep your gums healthy and save your jawbone.
Are They Right For You? If you choose to go with dental implants, your confidence will increase, because your mouth will look very much like it did before you started using your implants. You won't have to remove them during surgery. You won't have to take them out and soak them at night. Your mouth will look and feel better- and so will you.
