When you are missing some teeth or a single tooth, it can impact your life, oral function, and overall health. Your ability to speak and chew will suffer while your confidence will be at an all-time low.
Sadly, traditional restorative therapies only do half the job and restore only the part of teeth above the gum line. The good news is that our Aliso Viejo dental implants provide a better restoration option as they replace the lost tooth, roots, and crowns.
How dental implants improve your life
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed into your jaw. Implants hold the replacement tooth so that your artificial teeth can function just like regular teeth. Dental implants look natural and patients rarely remember their lost teeth after a successful dental implant procedure.
Here are four reasons you may want to consider getting dental implants when you have lost your teeth to periodontal disease and facial trauma.
1. Natural Looking
When you lose a tooth, your jaw and soft tissue fail to maintain their shape and volume. As a result, patients look old fatigued. Dental implants help you maintain youthful aesthetics while recovering your oral function.
2. Durable and Long Lasting
Dental implants are last longer than traditional replacements for missing tooth. However, it doesn’t mean they don’t require maintenance. You may have to visit your dentist every 5-7 years to refit the prosthetics. Your dentist will also examine the condition of your replacement prosthetics and determine whether you need to replace them.
3. Improved Oral Function
Dental implants not only improve your aesthetics, they also improve your oral function. For example, patients who are finding it difficult to chew after having lost teeth can see major improvements in their chewing ability after having implants.
However, it’s important to know that dental implants only restore 20% of the chewing function. You may have to limit the types of food you eat.
4. Boosts your self-confidence
A missing tooth can make you lose your confidence. It would seem improbable to smile and as soon as you realize this limitation, your confidence will go down the hill.
Dental implants can restore your confidence. With dental implants, you can smile to full again. You can talk and enjoy a boost in your confidence.
