Why Dental Implants Are Better Than Dentures

Losing teeth is no fun. But almost everyone loses a permanent tooth some time during their life, and as we age, tooth loss becomes more and more common.

The question is: what will you do about it? What is the best way to replace your missing teeth and restore your ability to enjoy life with confidence and ease?

Today, there are plenty of options, such as dentures and bridges, but as your top oral surgeon in Warren NJ, we believe dental implants are the best teeth replacement choice available. Read on to find out why.

Dental implants allow you to eat what you want.

If you are missing a tooth, you know how hard it can be to eat a delicious meal. You know that there are things you tend to avoid eating. And when you cannot eat what you want to eat, sometimes your nutrition suffers. Have you found yourself in a painful or annoying experience where you were unable to fully chew some part of your meal?
Occasionally, you may end up skipping eating altogether which leaves you irritable, sluggish, and weak. This is no way to live. Dental implants remove this obstacle because they are anchored in your jaw, so they function like natural teeth. Strong and secure, implants eliminate food restrictions, providing for biting, chewing, and eating experiences that are free of pain and embarrassment.

Dental implants improve your appearance.

Do you smile to the fullest? Do you grin ear to ear without worrying about your teeth slipping? Our dental implants implant confidence, allowing you to speak and laugh with abandon.  We remove that burden that holds you back, imagining the potential of awkward situations. Nothing embarrassing will happen because implant teeth look and function like natural teeth, and no one will even know you have them.

Dental implants enhance your quality of life.

We believe that no one should be walking around without a full set of teeth. We know it is possible to get by with missing teeth or uncomfortable dentures, but why put yourself through that when there is a better option? When the quality of your life could be significantly improved? Chewing properly, eating freely and healthily, smiling openly, and laughing fully are all within reach. Dental implants open up a whole new world for those missing teeth.

Dental implants are more affordable in the long run.

Upfront, the cost of dental implants may appear overwhelming. But here is the thing. They last two to three times longer than bridges and dentures, and they do not break or require the kind of maintenance of traditional teeth replacement methods. Implants also provide stimulation for your jawbone which keeps it from deteriorating over time, and it is hard to put a price on the health of your jaw. So, in the end, implants get you the best bang for your buck. Considering all the perks, can you afford going without them?

Dental implants require the least amount of care.

Implants are permanent. The new teeth are mounted on screws that we place in your jaw. The titanium that the implants are made of fuse with your jawbone and become like natural teeth. That means they never get lost, slip, or stain or break easily. In fact, all you need to do is brush and floss them like you do your natural teeth, and that is it. Dental implants win the Most Convenient Teeth Replacement Award for sure!
