The Benefits of Dental Implants vs Dentures
It’s a New Year, which is the time of the year when you look at yourself more closely. You look at yourself and think of things you want to change. Perhaps one of those changes you want to make this year is your smile. If you are looking at your teeth in the mirror, and you are less than satisfied with the way your smile looks, you have options. One of the best options for smile restoration is a dental implant. Here are some reasons why dental implants work better than dentures.
Why Dental Implants?
If you are missing one tooth, a couple of teeth, or a lot of teeth, implants can help. A dental implant is a porcelain crown that sits atop a screw. The screw actually screws into your jawbone, which acts as an anchor. Implants are the closest thing to having your real teeth back that you can get. In fact, your gums will remain pink and healthy, because your body will believe that your teeth are still intact. This is perhaps the largest advantage to dental implants.
Dental implants can also be used to replace several teeth at one time. Implants can replace all of your teeth with the newest techniques in dentistry. Because they are permanent, there’s no removing them to clean them, or worrying about whether or not they smell bad. In fact, you can care for your dental implants in much the same way you care for your permanent teeth.
Dental implants are a great way to make sure that your teeth look the best that you possibly can. If you are missing teeth, you need to take a look at implants.
