They may just sound like a fancy way to replace missing teeth and enhance your smile, but dental implants do so much more than that! They function in a similar way to natural teeth, providing much better support than prosthetic replacements. Dental implants can totally revolutionize your quality of life.

Let’s consider four ways they can do this.

1. Eat the Foods You Love

Dentures and partial dentures can limit your options when it comes to choosing foods. An implant can empower you to enjoy even your toughest favorite snacks!

2. Care for Your Smile Naturally

Prosthetic tooth replacements usually require special cleaning and maintenance. How do you care for your dental implant? Just like your other teeth!

  • Brush with a soft toothbrush at least twice a day
  • Floss daily
  • Use a non-abrasive toothpaste
  • Use a mouthwash your dentist recommends

3. Preserve Your Tooth Alignment

A large gap between teeth can allow them to drift out of place. It takes a lot of work to get them back in their proper places! A dental implant will snugly maintain the alignment of your other teeth.

4. Boost Your Confidence

No more hiding behind closed-lip smiles! With a new implant, you can smile with confidence in photos and social settings. Don’t let self-consciousness over a wide space in your smile hold you back from living life to the fullest.
