Why So Many Choose Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Why So Many Choose Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

No one relishes showing gaps in their smile. Losing teeth affects your oral health as well as your self-confidence. 

Modern dentistry has evolved to offer many solutions for replacing missing teeth. More people than ever are choosing dental implants as their tooth restoration option. Learn why you should consider joining them. 

The talented dental care team at EZ Dental Clinic in Bellevue, Washington, can help you learn more about dental implants and how they benefit many of our patients.

A natural, beautiful appearance

Dental implants replicate the look and feel of your natural teeth. They become permanently fixed by fusing with your jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. 

This process, called osseointegration, allows them to function like natural teeth and mimic their appearance. No one knows you have artificial replacement teeth. 

Incredible comfort and functionality

Other popular oral appliances to replace missing teeth, like dentures and bridges, often cause discomfort and can slip out of place or even fall out. Your freedom to eat and speak comfortably might be compromised. 

Dental implants are firmly anchored in your jawbone, so don’t worry about one slipping or falling out. Eat what you want, smile, talk, sing, laugh, and live as you did with all your natural teeth. Your implants are there to stay. 

Durable and long-lasting

Your dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and regular dental hygiene. Modern implants are made from high-quality titanium and are highly resistant to decay and gum disease.

Jawbone health and preservation

Your jawbone depends on stimulation from your teeth to grow healthy bone. Losing teeth hampers this vital process and can cause the underlying jawbone to deteriorate. The eventual bone loss can compromise the integrity of your facial structure and cause further tooth loss. 

Dental implants effectively halt bone loss by acting as artificial tooth roots stimulating the jawbone, maintaining its density, and preserving jawbone health.

Improved oral health and self-confidence

Dental implants fit into your existing rows of teeth seamlessly and help keep adjacent teeth in place. Home oral care is the same — simply brush and floss regularly like before and see your dentist twice yearly for professional cleanings and exams. 

Restoring your missing teeth with beautiful, natural-looking dental implants can significantly boost your self-confidence. No more gaps in your teeth to hide. No more problems eating certain foods. No more avoiding social situations because of your smile.

Your dental implants look, feel, and function as if they’re your natural teeth.
