5 Benefits of Dental Implants, Glastonbury, Connecticut

Missing teeth are not only an aesthetic issue. They can cause problems with eating, speaking, and bone health. If you have gaps in your smile, a dentist may recommend implants or dentures. To help you decide whether implants are the best solution for you, here are a few of the benefits they bring. 

Why Should You Get Dental Implants?

1. Make Eating Easier

When you’re missing teeth, chewing can be more difficult. If you swallow large pieces of food, you could also be at risk of choking. Because implants are permanently affixed to the jaw, they act exactly like teeth. Partial or full dentures can be fixed to implants for a more stable solution.

2. Improve Jawbone Health

Missing teeth can also impact the health of the underlying tissue. Without the stimulation of teeth in the area, the body begins to break down the bone. Having a dentist place implants in the mouth will help prevent this from happening.

3. Are Durable

dentistCaring for implants is just the same as caring for your natural teeth. Unlike dentures, you don’t need to remove them to clean them. If you brush and floss every day, you can rest assured that your implants will stand the test of time. 

4. Boost Self-Esteem

Your smile is the first feature people see. When you’re missing teeth, you may hesitate to smile, which may affect your ability to make a positive first impression on a date or job interview. It’s virtually impossible to tell if someone has dental implants, which means you can smile confidently. 

5. Allow You to Express Yourself

Much like eating, speaking can also be more difficult when you’re missing teeth. Gaps may produce whistling noises or accidentally cause spitting. If you experience this, you may choose to stay quiet when you would’ve otherwise spoken up. With implants to cover the gaps, you can talk to your friends and family with no fear.
