Top 3 Reasons to Choose Dental Implants, Geneva, New York

Despite the fact that dental care technology improves year after year, millions of people in the United States alone suffer from tooth loss. This can stem from any number of issues, from injuries to gum disease, but dental implants present a functional, permanent solution.

Implants are one of the many specialties you'll find at Finger Lakes Periodontics and Implant Dentistry of Geneva, NY. Here, they explain why many people choose this procedure to remedy the challenges of tooth loss.

3 Reasons to Get Dental Implants

1. Replace Missing Teeth

dental implantsWhile this reasoning may be obvious, it's worth mentioning why implants are an excellent way to replace teeth that have rotted or fallen out. While dentures and bridges were viable methods in the past, dental implants provide a permanent oral fixture without the need for messy adhesives or embarrassing inconveniences. They're durable enough to last for years, and with the right level of care, they can potentially last a lifetime. It's also a good idea to install them as soon as possible, because leaving empty spaces between teeth may lead to more serious issues. 

2. Avoid Future Complications

In some ways, dental implants are even better than normal teeth. While you will still need to visit your dentist for regular cleanings, implants won't develop cavities. They also prevent the need to reduce the size of surrounding teeth to make way for a bridge, improving your overall oral hygiene and supporting the natural teeth around them.  

3. Maintain Your Natural Smile

As far as appearance is concerned, dental implants offer the best results. They look and feel exactly like existing teeth and cause no deterioration in essential functions like chewing and speaking. Best of all, your smile will continue to look like your own. Other tooth replacement options may introduce side effects like a slightly altered face shape or smile, but that isn't the case with dental implants.
