Ask Your Pleasanton Cosmetic Dentist: The Benefits of Dental Implants

by | May 18, 2017 | Dental Care

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be overwhelmed by the number of restoration options available. While there are many services offered by your Pleasanton dentist, dental implants are often considered a popular and effective long-term solution to damaged or missing teeth.

Although there are several benefits to dental implants, here are just a few!

Secure & Permanent

Dental implants are an artificial version of real tooth roots that are secured into the jawbone just like your natural teeth. They provide a permanent, secure base for replacement teeth.

With other solutions to missing teeth (such as dentures or bridges), you run the risk of your replacement teeth coming loose because those solutions do not offer a secure & permanent base. Implants eliminate the risk of your tooth coming loose during normal activities like eating and talking.

Eat the Foods You Enjoy

Since the implant is permanently secured, you can still eat all your favorite foods! Alternative options, such as partials, do not offer the same luxury. Instead of struggling to limit your food options, you can eat just as you did before.

Natural Results

Dental implants are topped with a prosthetic tooth made to blend into your smile perfectly so that results look natural! The material used for dental implants is usually zirconium or porcelain that is very durable and looks very similar to natural teeth. These high-quality materials mimic the appearance of your other teeth, making them almost impossible to spot. Unless you tell someone, they won’t be able to tell you have a dental implant.

Dental implants also feel and function naturally because there are no removable parts. You can continue to care for your teeth and dental implants in the same way you always have, brushing and flossing daily and visiting your Pleasanton dentist every 6 months for a comprehensive exam and cleaning.

Reclaim Your Confidence!

One of the most amazing benefits of dental implants is that patients can get back to smiling! Often we hear that patients have been avoiding photos, or smiling with their lips closed due to being self-conscious about their missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants give patients beautiful results that can restore confidence and get patients back to smiling, and that is a beautiful thing.
