5 Reasons to Consider a Dental Implant

5 Reasons to Consider a Dental Implant

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are a number of options out there. However, dental implants are usually the superior option.

At Beaumont Cherry Valley Dental in Beaumont, California, Daniel Park, DDS, has helped many patients restore their smiles with dental implants. In this blog, he gives five reasons why dental implants are often better than other treatment options.

1. You get a permanent solution

The beauty of dental implants is that they replace a missing tooth above and below the gum line. 

An implant consists of three parts: a titanium post, an abutment, and the false tooth. The titanium post is anchored into your jaw bone to replace the missing tooth root, the abutment is attached to the top of the post, and the crown, or false tooth, is secured to the abutment.

This means that you replace the entirety of the tooth, not just the portion above the gum line. And while the entire process takes longer than other options, an implant can last a lifetime.

2. They look and feel natural

The only thing anyone will see above your gum line is your crown. Furthermore, the crown can be tinted to match your other teeth. So no one will know your tooth isn’t real.

Furthermore, you’ll be able to eat and speak like normal. So, in short, you’ll feel as if your tooth never went missing. 

3. You can eat what you want — worry-free

Dentures can be an excellent tooth replacement option. However, they typically get held in place with special adhesives or suction, which leaves them susceptible to slipping when you eat or talk.

Because Dr. Park replaces your missing teeth by anchoring new synthetic tooth roots in your jaw, you never have to worry about slippage, sliding, shifting, or, worse yet, an artificial tooth falling out. That means you can live life worry-free and without restriction, even when it comes to the foods you eat.

4. They don’t require special care

The last thing anyone wants is more work. Fortunately, dental implants are a low-maintenance solution, because they look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.

Unlike other treatment solutions that require special daily care, such as dentures, all you have to do to take care of your implant is brush, floss, and schedule regular cleanings — just like your natural teeth!

5. They protect your oral health

Finally, you should never ignore missing teeth, even if you only lose one. 

Believe it or not, your teeth work with each other to provide structure, stability, and proper function. So, losing a single tooth can weaken the entire system. This, in turn, can lead to a variety of problems, such as:

The benefit of dental implants is that they combat all of these problems, because they replace the entire tooth.
