Here are a couple of things you need to know about how implants can restore your smile.

Implants are the strongest tooth replacement option

Dentures rest on the gums, but dental implants are placed into the jawbone. Implants are made from titanium, a material that naturally fuses to the jaw, acting just like the root of a tooth. Studies have found that implants are far superior to dentures in terms of functionality. Depending on the patient, dentures provide only about 25 to 50 percent of the function of natural teeth. That means many foods are off the menu. Dentures wearers struggle to eat foods like corn on the cob, pizza, steak, apples, etc. Dental implants allow you to eat whatever you want again.

As an added bonus, you should know that implants will never get cavities!
With the implant in place, we can restore it with a number of restorations like crowns, bridges, or even full arches of dentures. If you’re already wearing dentures, we can simply place a few implants around the arch and then snap the dentures onto the implants. Snapping your dentures on to implants will improve your chewing ability and eliminate the need for denture adhesives.

Implants actually change your face

Having missing teeth obviously changes your smile. The problem is distracting, but missing teeth cause people more trouble than appearance. Whenever the teeth are lost, the jawbone will recede. This recession will cause the other remaining teeth in the mouth to shift around. Additionally, when the jawbone recedes, your face changes shape. People without teeth often wrinkles around the mouth and see the distance from their nose and chin draw closer together. This change unfortunately makes people look much older than they are. Dental implants can preserve your jawbone and help you keep a more youthful appearance.
