Why You Should Consider Dental Implants

February 17, 2020

What Are Dental Implants 

Missing teeth don’t only affect your smile, but they also cause difficulties in eating or speaking. Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth compared to dentures and bridges. Dental implants are placed in your jawbone and act as artificial tooth roots, which then offers support for the new replacement teeth. These provide a natural-looking smile with normal functionality. 

The Advantages of Dental Implants

Natural and Comfortable

Once the procedure is completed, you won’t have to worry about your smile. Dental implants look and feel like the rest of your teeth.

Act Like Real Teeth

Other methods of fixing missing teeth can cause speaking and eating issues. Dental implants remain firmly in place, which allows you to speak more clearly and eat the foods you like. 


Dental implants are durable. With proper upkeep, implants can prove to be a long-lasting option. 

Less Hassle

Since the implants are permanent, you don’t have to worry about additional care as you would with dentures. You can follow your normal dental routine. 

Good Candidates for Dental Implants

Candidates for dental implants can be of all ages; however, you must have good general and oral health. For the dental implants to work, healthy gums and bones are needed to properly secure the implant. These implants are also best for individuals who need only a few teeth replaced. 

The Procedure for Dental Implants 

While the dental implant procedure may seem daunting, it is easier than you think. Patients are awake during the procedure and may experience mild discomfort. Local anesthesia, a mouth-numbing agent, can be used to reduce pain. 

After the procedure, you will experience mild discomfort for two to three days. You can resume your normal activities the next day without any issues; however, you will need to stick to softer foods.
