We talk about dental implants a lot on our blog, and with good reason: they’re our speciality, they provide amazing results, and countless of our patients have been thrilled with how they look. But looking good is just a bit of what dental implants do. In fact, we’d say that it isn’t even the best thing about them.
Implants are small titanium screws that are surgically placed in your jaw. They fill the same role as the roots of natural teeth, and once healed are just as strong. We restore implants with single tooth crowns all they way up to full mouth bridges, so you’ll be able to enjoy life with a full new set of teeth in no time at all.
In all our years providing great dental implants in Louisville and New Albany, we’ve come to learn a few things about the many benefits of dental implants. If you’re suffering from tooth loss, whether it’s one tooth or many, you’ll find a ton of things that dental implants replace – not just your missing teeth.
They Replace Your Restricted Diet With One You’ll Love
When you’re wearing dentures you have a fraction of the bite force that natural teeth are capable of. If you’ve worn them you know all about it – you can’t eat the foods you want, it’s hard to chew those that you can, and the end result is a diet bereft of any interesting foods.
Dental implants will restore almost all the bite force you were missing. You’ll be able to return to eating all your favorite foods again, and without having to mash them or cut them into tiny bits first. Imagine being able to bite into a burger again – that’s just one thing implants can do for you!
They Replace Poor Health With Thriving
Facing tooth loss can sometimes feel like staring into the grave. People who suffer from missing teeth have shorter lifespans, and it’s not because they’re depressed – it’s because they can’t get the nutrients they need to be healthy.
By restoring your ability to eat and chew dental implants allow you to regain the health and vitality that you were missing. In just a few months you can be eating better, living happier, and enjoying your golden years in ways you couldn’t just a few months prior.
They Replace Embarrassment With Confidence
Being in the dental business we hear a lot of horror stories. Many of those come from our patients who’ve worn dentures, and their stories will probably sound familiar!
We’ve had patients who’ve sneezed their dentures out of their mouths, who’ve had them come out attached to food, and even some who’ve had them eaten by the dog. All of those potential situations have probably crossed your mind, leading to denture anxiety.
That anxiety can, in many cases, destroy your life! We’ve encountered patients who’ve skipped out on social events, family gatherings, and important life milestones for fear of their dentures embarrassing them. That will never be an issue with dental implants.
Your dental implants are fixed in place, and just as stable as natural teeth. When you chew, they’ll chew. When you laugh, they’ll laugh. You’ll actually have control of your life back.
They Replace Clutter With Nothing But A Toothbrush
Remember when you had a full set of natural teeth? Your bathroom counter was definitely a lot cleaner, wasn’t it? Now imagine going back to only having to brush your teeth twice a day – think of how much bathroom junk you could get rid of!
Dental implants allow you to live just like you did with permanent teeth – no more denture cleaner, no more soaking cups, no more cases … no more clutter. That’s not even to mention how much money you’ll save from not having to buy that junk: just a brush and some toothpaste.
