Getting dental implants can offer your smile a new leash on life.
Ready to say goodbye to your tooth loss? From the office of your Boston, MA cosmetic dentists--Dr. Edwin Riley III, Dr. Edwin Riley IV and Dr. Rita Han--find out why implants are often the first choice for restoring a toothless smile.
Get a Smile That Lasts
While implants may be a bit more expensive than getting dentures or bridges, there is a big reason why. Other dental restorations only last a few years before needing to be replaced. Also, while wearing either a bridge or dentures, you may also need to see your Boston dentist more often for adjustments. But when you get dental implants, you can expect a restoration that lasts the rest of your life (if you continue to maintain good oral health). Sure, your implant may need adjustments here or there, but they are built to last a lifetime.
They Stay Put
If you’ve ever worn dentures then you know that these removable prosthetics can easily slip around in your mouth. This makes eating and speaking a major challenge. You could continue to fight with your dentures to make them work or you can consider getting implants.
Dental implants act just like tooth roots and fuse together with your jawbone to become one. So you won’t have to worry about your implant moving around in your mouth. Enjoy all your favorite foods and feel comfortable talking to those around you again.
Anyone with tooth loss will tell you that not only does it have a major impact on their health, but also on their self-esteem. After all, a smile is one of the first features that people notice. When you opt for implants to replace your missing teeth, you’ll enjoy a restoration that functions and looks as close to a natural tooth as possible. No one will be able to tell the difference.
A Healthy Jawbone
Did you know that tooth loss doesn’t just stop there? Having gaps in your smile can also pose other risks for your oral health. In fact, as a result of missing tooth roots the jawbone will begin to deteriorate.
As the jawbone breaks down, it can also change the shape of your face, causing you to age prematurely. Also, teeth will start to shift out of alignment to fill the gap where your tooth once was. To prevent all these unpleasant changes, it’s time to get implants. They will provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to remain healthy.
