Discover some of the incredible benefits that dental implants can afford your smile.
So maybe you’ve heard about dental implants and how they can replace missing teeth for life. Perhaps you’re interested in sitting down with our New Port Richey, FL, family dentist Dr. Ahmed Mostafa to find out if dental implants are the best solution for treating your tooth loss. If you are an adult dealing with tooth loss you want to find an option that’s going to fit your needs. Here are some of the amazing benefits of getting dental implants,
Next Best Thing to a Real Tooth
We know that one of the most important things for our patients is that they get a false tooth that closely resembles a real tooth. You’ll be happy to hear that dental implants are just like natural teeth. They will look and feel just like the real thing, and they even function just like real teeth. After all, an implant is meant to replace an entire missing tooth from the roots to the crown, making this restoration as close as you can get to a natural tooth.
A Tooth for Life
Along with having a false tooth that looks and feels like a natural tooth we also know how important it is to have one that lasts. Other tooth replacement options will need to be replaced every 8-10 years, depending on how well you care for them, but you’ll be relieved to know that dental implants are strong enough to last the rest of your life. As long as you maintain good oral hygiene there is no reason why you shouldn’t have your implant the rest of your life.
Prevent Shifting Teeth
If you leave gaps in your smile and you don’t turn to our New Port Richey, FL, dentist to place dental implants then the rest of your natural teeth will start to move into these open spaces. As you might imagine, when this happens this can cause the rest of your smile to become crowded, crooked or twisted. Once these dental misalignments have occurred the only way to correct them is with braces. This is why it’s so important to turn to a qualified dentist for dental implants or other ways to replace missing teeth before this occurs.
Stop Bone Loss in Its Tracks
Did you know that the jawbone loses density when you lose one or more teeth? Since the roots of that tooth are no longer stimulating the jawbone this causes it to breakdown and shrink. Luckily, dental implants are made to take the place of your missing tooth roots, providing your jawbone with the exact stimulation it needs to stay healthy and strong.
