Top 3 Benefits of Full-Mouth Dental Implants, Anchorage, Alaska

Tooth loss affects millions of Americans; while many are missing just one tooth, others are missing several, which can interfere with their quality of life. Full-mouth dental implants can restore your appearance and help you eat comfortably and speak clearly. Although dental implants are an expensive smile restoration treatment, many patients feel they are worth the cost.

3 Reasons to Choose Full-Mouth Dental Implants

1. Comfortable

Once the dental implants are in place, they will have the look and feel of natural teeth. Dentures can shift and irritate the gums, even with an adhesive. They can also begin to fit poorly as the contours of your gums change. Implants, on the other hand, are inserted into the jawbone and held in place with healthy bone tissue. They won’t move when speaking or eating or stop fitting correctly, providing the comfort you need to feel confident.

2. Permanent

dental implants Anchorage AKDentures need to be removed and cleaned each day and can begin to feel loose over time. Since dental implants are integrated into the jaw bone, they function just like natural teeth. You care for them the way you would regular teeth, brushing and flossing to keep them clean. These habits also promote good gum health, so the prosthetic crowns stay secure.

3. Low-Maintenance

Implants are designed to last a lifetime with a regular oral hygiene routine. Brush at least twice a day and floss once a day, just as you would with natural teeth. This regimen keeps your whole mouth clean and healthy, so the implants last as long as they should.  Your dentist may recommend check-ups and professional cleanings every six months to protect the appliances.
