Help to Preserve Natural Appearance
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent. Dental implants help to prevent oral bone loss preserving your natural facial contours.
With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip.
Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.
Loose dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental Implants function like your own teeth giving you back the ability to eat all your favourite foods and enjoy wide varieties of different foods. They are also easy to care for - like a natural tooth.
Prevents Bone Loss
Implants help maintain bone volume and your facial profile compared to dentures, crowns and bridges where bone can continue to be lost.
May Give You Greater Self Confidence
Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself. Because dental implants look and feel like natural teeth with no need for messy adhesives, you will no longer have those uncomfortable moments you can experience with unsupported dentures. This will give you increased confidence in your smile.
Limits the Damage to Healthy Adjacent Teeth
Dental Implant restorations normally do not require modification of healthy surrounding teeth as may occur with bridge or dentures. They don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-support bridge does because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant and more of your own teeth are left intact, improving your long-term oral health.
Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
Long Lasting Solution
Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many Implants could last a lifetime compared to crowns/bridges which can last 7-10 years and dentures which may require on-going adjustments, relining and replacements.
