The 4 Benefits of Dental Implants

Kristina KingCosmetic Dentistry

Dental implants can be the solution for your dental problems. If you are missing a tooth, have a cracked tooth, or you need to have a tooth removed, a dental implant can complete your smile. It is one of the best dental solutions available because of its potential benefits. Because of this, it is a common procedure to have an implant placed. Here are the four benefits of dental implants.

Permanent Solution

Perhaps the most important benefit of dental implants is that they are a permanent solution to your dental problems. Many dental solutions can last a long time, but will need to be redone or replaced over time. Dental implants are one of the longest-lasting solutions that you can choose for any dental problem. Dental implants should last the rest of your life with proper care and maintenance. They do not wear out like other solutions do. Over time, you may want to replace the crown, but you won’t need to except in rare circumstances.

Better Appearance

Dental implants also have a better appearance than other solutions. When completed, your dental implant will have a crown that is shaped, colored, and positioned to look like a normal tooth. They are fit to your smile so that it looks like your natural tooth. There won’t be any exposed hardware either. Everything is hidden in the crown or under your gums. Other options like bridges, have exposed hardware or are positioned in a way that does not look entirely natural. If you are worried about the look of your smile, then this is an important benefit when choosing a solution.

Increased Comfort

Compared to other dental solutions, dental implants offer increased comfort. This is because of how they are mounted. While other solutions are mounted to other teeth or to your gums, dental implants are mounted directly to your jaw bone. This makes them sturdy and reduces stress on your gums and other teeth. Plus, the crown is shaped to fit perfectly between your other teeth. Since it is made to fit your specific jawline, it works more like a regular tooth than other solutions.

Less Cost Over Time

The cost of dental solutions is often a major concern when choosing one. Luckily, dental implants are a more cost-effective option. That is because they last a long time with minimal upkeep and maintenance. You won’t need to do more than normal care like brushing and flossing. You also won’t need complex repairs or maintenance. The crown will last a long time with proper care, and you can have the crown replaced if you need to. It is rare that anyone needs to have the implant base replaced.
