Because dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, the main advantage is the improved look and feel of the teeth. Many people say dental implants have transformed the way they eat, chew and even smile!!
Dental implants will allow you to enjoy eating a healthy diet that includes vegetables and fruits that are hard to chew with dentures or with no teeth.
Also, because they don’t cover the roof of your mouth, like dentures, dental implants allow you to taste the foods you eat much better and you will find that you speak better too without having to worry about your dentures coming loose or moving around.
Another less known advantage of dental implants is that they will help your body preserve the bone of your jaws. Because they act like a natural tooth, the bone will not resorb like it does with dentures or with no teeth present.
Maintaining the bone in your face will help your face look “fuller” and will prevent the sinking in of the lips and mouth that happens as we age.
