Getting Dental Implants Can Help Improve Your Confidence
Posted on 9/25/2019 by Crossroads Family Dental
If you are missing one or more teeth, it can have a detrimental effect on your psychological well-being. You may feel less confident or you may feel self-conscious. When you smile, you may start hiding the area where there are missing teeth. You may not be able to eat some of your favorite foods, depending on which teeth are affected.
It could also affect your speech, again, depending on the missing tooth. When you have a missing tooth, many areas of your life can be affected, and replacing them becomes a top objective. The problem is that there are so many options, you don't know which to choose. Let's look at one option, a dental implant, and how it compares with other options in restoring your self-confidence
What Makes Implants Better for Self Confidence?
Dental implants have come a long way since they were first introduced as a treatment option for missing teeth. They have not only become more affordable, but the process of installing them has shortened. The biggest advantage of dental implants over other options such as bridges, is that dental implants look more like natural teeth.
As an added bonus, if you are one of those people that runs their tongue along their teeth from time to time, they also feel more like natural teeth. As time goes on, some recipients of dental implants tell you that they can't even remember which tooth was an implant.
Another advantage to dental implants is their longevity. If your implants are planned and installed correctly, they can last as long, if not longer than, traditional tooth replacement options like bridges. As the technology advances, their longevity will likely exceed the other options available to you. As they become more commonplace, they should also become less expensive.
Since dental implants are anchored into your jaw, they also give you added ability to eat and chew. You won't have to worry about them falling out or coming loose. They also help preserve the bone and reduce bone loss in your jaw. Contact our office to find out more!
