Benefits of Dental Implants – Milwaukee, WI

Reasons to Invest in Your Smile

Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants is arguably one of the most worthwhile investments you can make in your smile. Why is that? Although you have several options when it comes to rebuilding your smile after tooth loss, dental implants deliver unmatched advantages over alternative solutions. Before you contact Sweet Smiles Family Dentistry, our dentists would like you to consider the following benefits of dental implants. 

Improved Comfort

Out of all the forms of tooth replacement available, dental implants come the closest to feeling like your natural pearly whites. This is due to a process called osseointegration, which involves the implant posts fully fusing with the jawbone, enabling them to act as replacement roots for your lost teeth. Essentially, the implants become a part of your own anatomy. Not only does this process make implants incredibly stable, but they’ll feel so natural that you might forget you even have implants!

Flawless Appearance

Dental implants don’t just feel natural; they look amazing, too. The titanium posts are hidden beneath your gumline, but they are topped with a personalized restoration. You might receive a dental crown, bridge, or denture, depending on how many teeth you need to replace. This restoration is made of lifelike, tooth-colored materials that resemble your natural smile to a tee. You can smile confidently knowing that onlookers won’t be able to tell the difference between your implants and your natural teeth.

Your pearly whites aren’t the only part of your appearance that can benefit from dental implants. After tooth loss, your jawbone normally starts shrinking because of a lack of stimulation from your teeth’s roots. However, dental implants stimulate the jawbone. This keeps it strong enough to support your facial structures and prevent sagging and wrinkling that ages you prematurely. You can stay looking young and vibrant for years to come!

Restored Chewing Power

Traditional dentures often present problems while eating, such as slipping or even falling out entirely. You might have a hard time eating steak or other tough foods. Prosthetic teeth secured by dental implants replenish most of the biting and chewing power of your original teeth, allowing you to enjoy a diet of various healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables with ease.

Clear Speech

Another drawback of conventional dentures is that if they don’t fit properly, they may slip around and cause you to slur your words or make an embarrassing whistling sound. Over the years, natural changes in your mouth result in dentures not fitting as snugly as they once did, increasing the risk of slippage. Because dental implants hold your teeth firmly in place, such changes won’t occur, letting you speak clearly.

Unparalleled Longevity

Unlike other tooth replacements, dental implants are designed to last more than 30 years. With the right oral hygiene routine and regular dental checkups, your new smile could even last a lifetime!
