What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental Implants | Kirkland, WA | Jen Kim: Family & Cosmetic DentistryHaving a missing tooth is not only embarrassing to many people, but it can also affect the way people speak and even eat. You can never tell how much a gap in your smile can alter the way you usually do things until it happens. Thankfully there are many tooth replacement options in Kirkland, WA for people who want to fill out their smile.

The main benefit is permanence

There are tooth replacement options that are removable, like dentures. They have their advantages, but many of our patients don’t like the feel of dentures that can slip in their mouth or even fall out. It’s hard to adjust to something impermanent when you’re used to your natural teeth. 

Dental implants won’t slide out of place since they are rooted in your jawbone, much like a natural tooth would be. This makes eating more comfortable, even hard to chew food is easier to eat without any pain. Since dental implants are designed to be durable, with proper care and maintenance they can last ten years or longer—making them a long-term dental investment for many Kirkland, WA patients.

They also look like your natural tooth, so unless you tell people, they won’t be able to tell just by looking at your smile. You can go back to smiling without worrying what people think of you when they see your grin. 

Dental implants improve your health

Unlike other dental procedures which require altering your surrounding teeth in order to support the prosthetics, like dental bridges or partial dentures; dental implants leave your existing teeth intact. This is overall better for your oral health and makes brushing and flossing easier for better oral hygiene.
