If you have lost one or more teeth, a variety of dental issues could follow. Thankfully, dental implants present a viable solution to prevent these potential problems. Basically, dental implants act as replacement tooth roots that are surgically installed into your jawbone, providing a secure foundation for your replacement teeth.
Here at Lynch Dental Center in our River Forest, IL, and Chicago, IL, offices, our dentists, Dr. John Lynch, Dr. Sheila Lynch, or Dr. Frances Lynch, consider dental implants as the best permanent tooth replacement option. Why? Consider the benefits below.
They Act Like Your Natural Teeth
Dental implants will become a part of you over time. As mentioned previously, they are surgically positioned into your jawbone and are composed of titanium screws. Titanium could naturally combine with your bone—producing an extremely stable replacement tooth.
Enhanced and Natural Appearance
Dental implants can improve your appearance, as they look exactly like your real teeth. Since the crown, the prosthetic replacement tooth, is positioned along your gum line, it is difficult to distinguish it from your original teeth.
You Can Eat Freely
Other tooth replacement options may require you to avoid foods that are chewy, hard, or crunchy. With dental implants, however, food limitations won’t be a problem, since they are sturdily and securely fastened into your jawbone.
Different tooth replacement options could bring about bone loss, which, in turn, could make your face sag. Dental implants, one the other hand, could prevent bone loss as they stimulate your jawbone.
Dental implants have been reported to last a lifetime, provided that you maintain proper oral hygiene and visit your dentist in our Chicago, IL, or River Forest, IL, offices regularly.
Restored Self-Esteem and Confidence
Dental implants restore the quality of your smile as they replace missing teeth, improving your self-esteem and confidence.
