People who are missing one or more teeth have a number of options today for tooth replacement. A dental implant can be used to replace one tooth, a mouth full of teeth, or to secure a denture into place. If you have done any reading on the subject, it probably comes as no surprise that dentists consider dental implants to be the best option available for tooth replacement.
When people come to our Toronto, ON clinic to learn more about dental implants, we tell them that patients also prefer them—and here are some of the reasons why.
#1—Dental Implants Offer the Best Form and Function
Nothing beats a dental implant for providing you with the form and function closest to your natural tooth. Dental implants are permanently integrated into the jawbone, so there are no worries about implants moving or slipping. You can enjoy dinner and other social occasions with confidence.
#2—Dental Implants Mean There Are No Food Restrictions
Most denture-wearers will tell you that although today’s dentures are better than those in decades past, they still need to be careful about what they eat. With dental implants, you can enjoy the crunchiest vegetables and the juiciest steak without concerns about your teeth moving.
#3—Dental Implants Have No Adjustment Period
Although most denture-wearers eventually grow accustomed to speaking and eating with their new hardware, you won’t have to experience that with dental implants. Even the surgery for placing the dental implant generally offers a quick recovery. Once we put the dental crown on top of the healed implant, you can chew just as you would have with your natural teeth—or perhaps even better if you had been living with teeth that were not functioning properly.
Smile, chew, laugh, and speak with confidence. If you are interested in learning more about dental implants or want to schedule an appointment in our Toronto, ON dental office, give us a call. We look forward to helping your smile!
