5 Reasons Patients Love Dental Implants
Glendale patients get breathtaking and natural-looking results with dental implants. Here are 5 reasons why that is.
- Easier to use – Dentures are inconvenient in many different ways. You have to take them out and clean them; they can fall out when you’re eating, laughing, or talking; and they can often move around. Dental implants are very much like your natural teeth. All you have to do is floss and brush them regularly.
- Look great – Dental implants provide the closest thing to your real teeth in terms of Our surgeons will match your implants to the shape, color, and size of your other teeth. This makes your new dental implants virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
- Powerful chewing – One of the biggest complaints with dentures is that they’ll fall out while eating certain foods. Not so with dental implants. Glendale patients will get almost 100% of their natural chewing power from their dental implants.
- Bone loss – Most patients don’t know that the number one health risk of missing teeth is bone loss. Your jawbone needs something to “hold onto.” Otherwise, the bone will start to melt away. Dental implants anchor the replacement teeth with a metal post that is implanted into the jawbone. This keeps the bone from disappearing and prevents loss of facial structure.
- Long lasting – While dentures can sometimes last 5 or 10 years, dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. While this is definitely not a guarantee, if patients are diligent with their oral hygiene and get regular checkups at their dentist, it is not uncommon for implants to last several decades.
