The Benefits Of Dental Implants

posted in: Archive 25

Dental Implants Function Much Like Natural Teeth

While there are other tooth replacement options, dental implants have many advantages over other treatments. They are called “implants” because an artificial tooth root is placed, or implanted, in your jawbone. It is then covered by a natural-looking tooth replacement. Implants are the only tooth replacement option that incorporate an artificial root, allowing them to function much like natural teeth.

There Are Many Benefits To Choosing Implants

Here are five major benefits to consider when deciding between dental implants and other tooth restoration options:


Unlike dentures, you don’t need to take them out to eat or clean and there’s no need to reapply them with adhesive. Implants also provide a permanent solution to tooth loss–they are built to last a lifetime if they are well taken care of.


Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth so you can look and feel your best. They also function like real teeth, meaning you can bite naturally and eat the foods you love without hesitation. Implants also don’t interfere with speech like some other replacement options.


You can take care of your teeth as usual, flossing once a day and brushing twice daily. With implants, it’s easy to maintain that bright, beautiful smile!


When you lose teeth the jawbone deteriorates, causing your face to appear sunken over time. Implants act as an artificial tooth root, stimulating the jawbone and promoting bone growth. This helps maintain the natural shape of your face and jaw.


Some treatment options, like a dental bridge, require grinding down other healthy teeth to support the bridge. Implants replace lost teeth but do not require any alteration of your existing healthy teeth.

Here’s A Behind-the-scenes Look At How Implants Are Made

    Since dental implants do not alter your healthy teeth, they simply replace the ones you’ve lost, they seem like a good choice. I would imagine that only working with the damaged or lost teeth could benefit your oral health. In order to get the most out of your implants, you’d probably want to make sure you find a dentist that specializes in them so you can ensure you get the best quality ones available.

    I really like how you said that a dental implant doesn’t affect your oral health at all if you keep taking care of them. We have a son who was born without a couple of teeth and we have been waiting for him to grow to get some new ones inserted. We’ll have to talk to a dentist in order to ensure that he can get everything taken care of after they have been installed.

    It was really nice that you pointed out that dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss and that they do not need to be removed regularly like dentures. If that is the case, then I will consider this for when I decide to replace my missing teeth. After all, I need a replacement that is easy to deal with and will not require additional effort due to my hectic schedule. Thanks!

    I had no idea that dental implants can actually allow you to have the look and feel of your natural teeth! My friend is going in for an interview in a few weeks, but she recently chipped her front tooth when she fell hiking, so she’s nervous that it will affect her first impression during the interview. I’m sure she’d really benefit from finding a dentist in her area that can schedule a dental implant consultation so she can get her smile back and make a good impression on a potential future employer. Thanks for the tips!

    I had no idea that dental implants are Implants are the only tooth replacement option that incorporates an artificial root, allowing them to function much like natural teeth. I have two really damaged teeth that are about to get pulled out and have been trying to explore my best options for replacing them. After learning more about dental implants and their benefits, I will definitely consider getting them to replace my teeth.

    I had never considered the fact that you don’t need to remove dental implants to eat or clean as you do with dentures. Last week, my brother was playing softball with his work, when he got pelted in the face and broke a bunch of teeth. He wasn’t able to recover any of his teeth, so he has been thinking about other options to replace his missing teeth. It may be beneficial for him to find a dentist that can provide him with dental implants to replace those teeth that are missing.

    I love what you said about dental implants and how they are long-lasting. I believe that dental implants are beneficial for those seeking to improve their smiles. If I needed dental implants, I would make sure to find the best dentist around.

    It got me when you said that dental implants can also be taken care of just like our natural teeth wherein we could brush and floss like normal. I will keep that in mind now that I have decided to finally get implants. This is for the gap I have between my teeth I have been bothered about ever since the accident while I was cheer dancing in high school.

  9. Dean Phillips

    I thought it was interesting how you said that flossing and brushing are not complicated by implants. My brother has worked in an industrial warehouse for the last 15 years, and he has lost a lot of teeth during that time. It might be good for him to see a dentist about having dental implants installed to replace those missing teeth.

  10. Brooklyn Johnson

    I like how you mentioned that getting dental implants improves the appearance of your teeth, and how they are indistinguishable from natural teeth. I’ve been thinking about getting dental implants for a while now because of my many chipped and stained teeth that severely lower my self-confidence. I will definitely keep your benefits of dental implants in mind when deciding if implants are a good option for me to fix my smile and increase my confidence.

  11. Kate Welling

    I like how you mentioned that our face will look sunken over time when we lose teeth. It makes sense that we wouldn’t want this because we want to continue looking like ourselves! I’m going to look for a dentist in my area that can help give my mom some implants. She lost her teeth a couple of weeks ago, so getting this figured out before she goes too long would be smart.

  12. Yoshiko Flora

    I find it cool when you said that a person that invests in dental implants can help a person bite normally and eat without hesitation. When you said that, it convinced me to find a local dental clinic to have this made for my cousin. That way, she can also complete her set of teeth while making her more confident to show her smile in pictures.

  13. Sandra Patterson

    Wow, I had no idea that you don’t need to take out and clean implants as you do with dentures. My sister has a couple of missing teeth from an accident. She has been considering dentures, but I don’t think that she knew that implants were an option.

  14. Kate Welling

    It’s nice to know that implants prevent bone deterioration. This is great to know because I am currently losing bone because I lost a tooth last month. I’ll look for a dentist to help me with this.

  15. Thomas Jameson

    It’s good to know that dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. My mom lost a took recently, and she wants the replacement to look as natural as possible. I’ll pass this information along to her so that she can look into her options for dental implants.

  16. Dave Anderson

    That is nice that you don’t need to take out dental implants to clean them like dentures. Maybe it would be good to get some dental implants for my missing teeth. Soon I will have to talk to a dentist to see if I can get dental implants.

    My dad is thinking about getting dental implants because he is getting older. I’ll be sure to tell him that they are convenient and long-lasting. It would be really helpful if he could get them from a professional.

    My brother lost a tooth while he was playing soccer with his friends and he was having a hard time eating without it, so, he considering having an implant. It was explained here that having an implant will give her the look feel and function of the natural teeth. Moreover, it’s recommended to go to trusted dentists when in need of dental implants.

    I was not aware that dental implants could last a lifetime with proper care. My mother is looking for options to fix her teeth. I will show her this article to see if it helps her to make the best decision.

  22. Stefan Bradley

    Thanks for mentioning how dental implants are made to last a long time if they are properly maintained. My wife wants to get dental implants but wanted to know exactly how long they would last if she were to invest in them. I will let her know that dental implants are a permanent solution if they are taken care of.

  23. Mia Stewart

    I like how the article explains that dental implants look and feel like real teeth and are indistinguishable. My son lost one of his teeth during a football game and we are wanting to get it replaced but we want it to look real. We will look into getting dental implants for him.

  24. Derek McDoogle

    Wow, it’s interesting how when you lose teeth the jawbone deteriorates, causing your face to appear sunken over time. one of my friends lost a few teeth after a car accident. I will definitely share this article with him so he is aware of the benefits of dental implants.
