Dental implants are used when teeth are missing from the mouth. They not only give you a beautiful smile, but also aid in eating and keeping the jaw and the remaining teeth in proper alignment. If you have lost one or more teeth or have large gaps in your smile, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Improperly fitting dentures are also a reason to switch to dental implants. When dentures do not fit correctly, they can cause a number of problems. They can slip or make clicking noises when you talk. They can cause irritation to the gums upon chewing. And they can increase self-consciousness when eating in public. Also, if dentures do not fit correctly, they will make you appear older.
Dental implants are a wonderful alternative to dentures or bridges that need to be anchored to neighboring teeth, which can wear them down. And implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. Since they are anchored into the gum, they are a permanent solution to missing teeth. And they are strong and durable, so that you will not have to fear what you can and cannot eat. They also look very natural. No one will know that you have dental implants.
