Dental implants are titanium posts which are placed into the jaw to replace tooth roots in areas where teeth are missing. The implants are then topped by dental restorations such as bridges, crowns or dentures to form stable replacement teeth.
Dental implants are regarded as the most durable tooth replacement option. Dental implants can help a person have stronger teeth as they create stability needed to maintain the jawbone.
The shrinkage of the jawbone that occurs when you lose teeth can make your face look older. However, if you are experiencing this problem, worry no more as dental implants can help you look and feel like you have natural teeth.
With dental implants, you will not have to deal with the discomfort associated with dentures. Because dentures are usually placed on top of the gums and jawbone, shrinking of the jaw bone will alter the fit of the dentures hence leading to rocking or slipping of dentures.
Exposed nerves and gum irritation can make dentures even more uncomfortable. Implant supported replacement teeth are like natural teeth as they are anchored to the jawbone and are very comfortable.
Improved speech Since dental implants feel and look like natural teeth, you will be able to speak in a natural and relaxed tone. With ill-fitting dentures, your teeth will slip and slide around the mouth. Your facial muscles will become tense trying to hold your teeth in place. This can lead to slurred speech, mumbling or clicking noises.
Dental implants can boost your self-esteem as they make you feel better about yourself. This is mainly because of the fact that you will regain nearly all of the things that those with no dental problems have. This will give you renewed confidence and allow you to enjoy life and do what others are doing without having to think twice about it.
Help you eat better
Those people with dentures with a good fitting can only eat at 15-20% efficiency compared to those who have natural teeth. The shrinking of the jawbone reduces the chewing efficiency making it difficult to eat some foods. Dental implants will restore chewing efficiency making you feel like you are chewing with your natural teeth.
So, dental implants can enable you to eat any kind of food without having to worry about pain. Dental implants also have the palate removed from your upper denture to allow you enjoy any type of food.

Dental implants can help you avoid several embarrassing inconveniences associated with dentures. This is because of the fact that you will not have to use the gooey denture adhesives that are usually reapplied throughout the day. You will also not have to cover your mouth whenever you smile or laugh fearing that your teeth may pop out or fall down.
Protect your remaining natural teeth
When it comes to replacement of an adjacent tooth or teeth, dental implants are more effective than other options. With bridges, the medical professional has to ground teeth surrounding the missing teeth. However, with dental implants, you do not have to modify the surrounding teeth hence helping you protect your remaining teeth.
