Are you currently wondering whether a dental implant is the best way to replace your missing teeth? This artificial tooth root has provided many adults with the long-term tooth replacement they’ve been looking for to help restore confidence in their smiles. Our Briarcliff Manor, NY, dentist Dr. Michael Teitelbaum makes treating tooth loss easier with the help of dental implants. Here are some of the advantages that come along with getting implants,
A tooth that stays put
One reason many people are coming into our Briarcliff Manor, NY, practice for dental implants is that they want a replacement tooth that is fixed in place and doesn’t have to be removed. Once an implant is placed you won’t ever have to worry about it moving or shifting around in your mouth, or ever having to remove these false teeth at night. Your implant stays in your mouth just like your natural teeth and with proper care can last the rest of your life.
Easy to care for
Since implants are truly the next best thing to real teeth this also means that they can be cared for just like real teeth. Yes, you will still need to maintain good oral hygiene every day and visit your dentist for those routine dental cleanings, but apart from that, your new teeth do not require any special care and maintenance. Plus, dental implants offer the added bonus of not being able to develop cavities.
Make mealtimes enjoyable again
Tooth loss presents a lot of challenges and chewing is one of them. This can make it difficult to eat certain foods. Eating should be enjoyable, not stressful, and implants can ensure that you no longer worry about the foods you eat. Since implants function just like real teeth they are able to take on the same chewing forces that the rest of your smile can.
Improve your social life
While dental implants certainly provide our patients with a wide range of health benefits, we often don’t stop to think about the other non-health benefits you’ll enjoy with a full smile. If tooth loss has made you cancel social gatherings and dates, or held you back from asking for that much-deserved promotion, then dental implants could provide you with the confidence boost you need to feel more confident in your job, in social situations and even romantic encounters.
