5 Key Benefits of Dental Implants

If you’ve lost even a single tooth you know what kind of effect it can have on your happiness, confidence, and quality of life. You worry about how people will look at you, about the costs of treatment, and about any number of things that just make you want to never smile again! At Shorewood Family Dental Care we understand exactly how you feel, which is why we are glad to provide premium solutions to replacing lost teeth in the form of dental implants. If you’ve ever considered implants in the past you may already know a lot about them but do you know all the benefits of dental implants? We want to tell you all about how dental implants can change your life, so read on!

Implants Eliminate Gum Pain

Are you a denture wearer? If you are you might have been experiencing a gum infection or pain. All the pressure of chewing and talking isn’t meant to go straight to your gums in the way dentures distribute it – no wonder they end up irritating you!

All of that redness, inflammation, and discomfort can go away with dental implants. Because implants are anchored to the bone they distribute force in the same way your natural teeth do. Dentures commonly cause pain from the excess pressure and force. No wonder why patients are often saying, “I Hate My Dentures“! With the benefits of dental implants, your experience will be pain-free – just great, comfortable, natural-feeling dental implants.

You Can Eat The Foods You Love

When is the last time you enjoyed your favorite meal? If you wear dentures or have even just a few missing teeth that answer might be “a long time ago.” Even with dentures that fit great it’s still hard to eat foods that are sticky, chewy, and crunchy: they just don’t play well with dentures held in by nothing but suction.

To add to the list of benefits of dental implants – they have been shown to restore almost complete usage of the teeth. Whether you want a full-mouth implant solution or just a single tooth replaced you’ll be amazed at the level of chewing ability you have. Once you receive your dental implants at Shorewood Family Dental Care, you’ll be eating all of your favorite snacks and meals without any kind of discomfort or struggle!

Restore Your Youth

Lost teeth can add years to your appearance. The more teeth you’re missing the greater the sunken look you get, just think of denture wearers without their teeth in. Even with dentures there’s still the wrinkle lines that form, and stick around, when the dentures are in. There isn’t a whole lot you can do to get a completely natural look with replacing lost teeth.

Except for getting dental implants. Because one of the major benefits of dental implants is they’re permanently attached to your mouth, so you’ll avoid the wrinkles and sunken look of missing teeth. When also comparing dentures versus implants, implants are not as bulky as natural dentures. So with implants, you don’t need to be concerned with the “fake” look that some dentures have. You’ll look years younger and no one will even suspect that your implants aren’t your natural teeth!

Smile With Confidence

Have you been hiding what’s left of your smile due to tooth loss? One or more teeth missing can change the way you live day-to-day, resulting in discomfort, shame, and embarrassment. Some patients even report a decline in their social life due to lost teeth!

We don’t want that to be the case, and with the benefits of dental implants it won’t be. You’ll be living with teeth that stay in place when you smile, are there when you wake up, and are completely reliable. We’re confident you’ll absolutely love the results we can create at our Shorewood dental office: dental implants are one of the things we excel at.

Taking Care Of Them Is Simple

How much denture cream, paste, special brushes, soaking liquid, and other denture equipment do you have? If you’re like a lot of the patients we see at Shorewood Family Dental Care the answer is probably the same we hear all the time: too much.

Imagine going home and throwing it all away. You’ll never need to worry about anything besides a toothbrush, toothpaste, and some floss, just like it used to be. Dental implants are easy to care for – you just brush and floss them like your natural teeth, no extra work needed.
