Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are anchored in your gum or jawbone to act as a strong and sturdy foundation for your replacement teeth. Unlike dentures that are removable, dental implants are fixed in your mouth and cannot be removed to ensure optimal comfort, function, and appearance.
No matter if you need partial or full dentures, dentures are extremely beneficial to both your smile and your oral health.
There are many advantages of restoring your smile with dental implants. Some specific benefits include:
- Improved appearance
- Improved self-esteem
- Improved comfort
- Improved speech
- Better oral health
- Easier eating
However, it is important to note that dental implants are not for everyone. Generally, you must be in good general and oral health with an adequate amount of jawbone to be a candidate for implants. The best way to find out if dental implants are the right tooth replacement option for you is by visiting your dentist for a consultation.
