Are you missing one or more teeth? Dental implants may be the perfect way to restore the appearance, function, and health of your smile. We frequently recommend implants to our Omaha patients because of the life-changing benefits that they offer.
Preserve Your Oral Function
The simple truth is that your teeth are designed to work together. They play a key role in your ability to speak and eat. If you lose one or more of them, you may experience a significant decline in oral function.
It can become difficult or uncomfortable to chew food once a tooth falls out or is extracted. You may resort to eating on one side of your mouth or avoiding certain meals. Dental implants restore the full strength of your bite and allow you to eat whatever you please!
If you are missing your front teeth, it can also be hard to speak clearly. Articulating certain words becomes a challenge, and some of what you say may sound distorted. Replacing your teeth with implants will help to ensure that your speech is not affected.
Protect Your Oral Health
Your oral health can also suffer as a consequence of tooth loss. Your remaining teeth will likely shift out of place to compensate for the missing ones.
This shift can cause problems such as tooth sensitivity and tooth grinding. It can even create areas that are incredibly hard to brush and floss. Harmful bacteria can accumulate in these areas and cause decay.
Dental implants help you protect your oral health. They prevent your teeth from shifting out of place and may make it easier for you to carry out your oral hygiene routine.
Love the Way You Look
Many people replace missing teeth to improve their appearance. You may feel self-conscious about the gaps in your smile caused by tooth loss. Implants offer a solution to this problem and give you a smile that you’ll feel proud to show off.
Implants even go one step further than alternatives such as dentures and dental bridges. They are the only tooth replacement option that stimulates your jawbone, preventing bone loss and facial collapse. You can enjoy a lifted and youthful appearance by replacing missing teeth with implants as soon as possible.
