Benefit Of Dental Implants

Las Vegas, NV

Losing a tooth can lead to embarrassment. One of the ways that we can take care of tooth loss is with a dental implant. With an implant, we will give you a new tooth using a screw and a crown. It will look and feel just like a natural tooth. Here at Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery, we have helped plenty of people with dental implants. Here are some of the benefits that they are experiencing. If you receive a dental implant, you could experience these benefits as well.

Some Of The Benefits Of Dental Implants

There are many benefits to dental implants. Some of them are fairly obvious, while some may surprise you.

The most obvious benefit that you will find if you have a dental implant is that you will no longer have a hole in your smile. You will instead have a tooth there that was designed to look natural. No one will know that it is not a natural tooth.

Another benefit that you might realize is that you will be able to once again eat like normal. A dental implant is strong, so it will be possible to eat the way that you used to eat before you had problems with your tooth. You will be able to enjoy your favorite foods once again.

A dental implant is good for the bone in your jaw. When you lose a tooth, you will start to lose bone almost immediately. The bone in your jaw where the tooth used to be will start to diminish, and it will be absorbed into your body. With a dental implant, your jaw will think that the screw is the root of a tooth, and the bone loss will not continue. We will often need to add bone to your jaw before the implant will take through bone grafting. That will become a permanent part of your jaw as well.

When you lose a tooth, the other teeth in your jaw will start to shift. That can lead to bite problems, more loose teeth, and gaps between your teeth. A dental implant will take the place of the missing tooth, and it will hold the other teeth in place. This will be healthier for your mouth overall.

Depending on which tooth is missing, you could have a hard time pronouncing some sounds. With a dental implant you will be able to properly make those sounds once again, so you will no longer whistle your “s” sound or mumble when you need to say a word that starts with “th”. You will be able to talk with confidence.

Get Back Your Self Confidence With A Dental Implant

With a dental implant, you will be able to regain your self-confidence. You will not have to wonder if someone is staring at the gap in your mouth when you smile.
