Why Choose Dental Implants
Palo Alto, CA
When you think of a beautiful smile, what comes to mind? Are you thinking of a bright, brilliant smile full of straight and healthy-looking teeth? Nobody likes having a mouth full of unsightly spaces and gaps where their teeth used to be. If you are missing teeth and wanted a natural-looking, attractive looking alternative to dentures, then you may be a good candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are vastly superior to other dental restoration options, and we here at Palo Alto Oral Health have the skill and knowledge to help our patients determine if they are good candidates for this safe and preferred procedure for restoring lost teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants, without a doubt, are the ideal option for many of our patients who are seeking restoration for their missing teeth. While most people tend to think of dentures as a popular choice for replacing teeth, dental implants are growing in popularity, and for a good reason! For starters, dental implants look and feel just like real teeth.
Unlike dentures, which can slip and move around in your mouth and may pop out while you are talking, dental implants are stable and will not cause you unexpected embarrassment. They can also improve your bite force and your ability to eat and chew, giving you back the opportunity to enjoy all of your favorite foods. What is not to love about that?
Dental implants are also a permanent choice and are an investment in your future. Dentures, on the other hand, will only last you between seven to ten years if you take good care of them. Before they fail on you, you will still need to reline them to keep them comfortable in your mouth due to the shrinkage of your gum tissue.
Dental implants can help prevent shrinkage and prevent bone loss and do not need to be replaced. They can last you the rest of your life if you take good care of them, and they have an incredible 98 percent success rate.
Dental implants are also really easy to take care of, making them a convenient choice for many of our patients. Unlike dentures, which need to be removed from your mouth and soaked and scrubbed before you can wear them again, dental implants can be treated just like real teeth. You can continue to brush and floss around them. They also can improve your appearance not only by filling any voids in your smile, but they can also help your face stay youthful and attractive.
Tooth loss can cause your cheek to look hollow and start to sag, but dental implants keep your face looking full and attractive. They can also help keep your mouth healthier by preventing food particles and bacteria from getting trapped up by your gums, which can occur with dentures.
