3 Rewards of Getting Dental Implants

People lose teeth from decay, trauma or gum disease. You never want to ignore this problem because over time, you may experience problems eating, jawbone loss, joint issues and shifting teeth. What started as one missing tooth can quickly lead to you losing most of your teeth. This is why you need to seek out dental implants from Dr. Gregory A. Toback right away.

  1. Enhanced Appearance

One main reason why people seek out replacements for missing teeth is that they are self-conscious about their smiles. Gaps between teeth does not look good, and leaving those gaps in place can cause people to not smile as often. Once you get implants, you will want to show everyone your pearly whites. Implants are fused directly to the jawbone, so you do not have to worry about them slipping or degrading any time soon.

  1. Improved Eating

Gaps in your smile can also prevent you from eating tougher foods. Depending on where the gap is located, you may have a hard time chewing apples, carrots and other tough foods. A lot of people become more reliant on processed foods that are softer. With dental implants, you can eat whatever you want because implants are designed for resilience and durability.

  1. Better Speech

Our periodontist notices a lot of people have trouble pronouncing certain words with missing teeth. Your tongue and teeth play important roles in your speech patterns, and one lost tooth can affect how you say certain things. This is embarrassing if you frequently need to give public speeches. Implants give you the structure you need to pronounce anything accurately.
