Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants may seem expensive at first, but they are an investment in your oral health and appearance. You may be compelled to choose other oral appliances, like dentures or bridges, since they may seem less expensive up front. However, unanchored appliances do not stimulate the jawbone like dental implants, which will cause the bone tissue to deteriorate over time. This will lead to loose dentures that will need to be readjusted and even replaced every five to 10 years, making them a short-lived option that ends up being more expensive in the long run.
Dental implants provide the anchor your jawbone needs to stay healthy, acting like a normal tooth when it comes to oral functions like chewing and speaking. It will also appear like a normal tooth once the dental crown has been placed over it so that your smile’s appearance looks completely natural. Dental implants can last for a lifetime, allowing a better quality of life.
