Dental Implants – The Ideal Way To Restore Your Missing Smile

Many people seek dental implants in Richmond because they’ve experienced broken or missing teeth. Missing teeth can be problematic because they can lead to difficulty eating, not to mention any embarrassment and discomfort caused. One solution is to fit dental implants and once placed, they are considered by many to be the ideal way to restore a missing smile. So why is this?

They offer a permanent solution

Dental Implants Richmond

When faced with the possibility of missing teeth you do have several options including dentures. In terms of cost they’re far cheaper than dental implants and they don’t involve any surgical procedures in order to fit them. So in that respect, they are a plausible option. However they do come with their own set of issues. The main one being that as they have to be regularly adjusted to suit the changing shape of the jaw they only have a shelf life of between 7-15 years on average. Conversely dental implants have the ability (provided that they’re cared for properly) to last for 40 years or more and as such are considered the “only permanent solution to missing teeth”.

They look just like your real teeth

Dental implants are placed directly into the jaw and are unlike dentures which sit on the gum. The advantage of this is that each tooth stands on its own and as a result looks, feels, and to a certain extent, even acts just like a real tooth would. In fact when fitted properly it’s very hard for most professionals to even tell the difference, let alone a lay person.

They can help in more ways than you think

Even when wearing dentures you might still feel self-conscious because let’s face it…. they can be unpredictable. They may be a snug fit one day and over a short period of time can become loose meaning that you have to eat with caution. Even simple actions that we would normally take for granted such as speaking and exercising may become problematic. Conversely when you undergo a dental implant in Richmond, you’ll be able to feel comfortable in the fact that you can eat what you like, speak when you like, and exercise, safe in the knowledge that your teeth are going to be problem free. Ultimately this gives you more confidence, plus improved overall health.
