5 Reasons to be Thankful for Your Dental Implants

by Andrew Mueller, DMD, MD | Nov 25, 2020

During this holiday season, you have many reasons to be thankful for your new smile with dental implants. With permanent teeth, you can enjoy many benefits that just aren’t possible with many missing teeth. If you continue to care for them properly, you can continue to enjoy your dental implants for many years to come! Our dentist encourages you to keep your investment healthy by maintaining routine hygiene appointments at our office. Here are five reasons to be thankful:

1. Dental implants are stable

Because dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, they are the most stable tooth replacements. They won’t ever slip or fall out, so you can enjoy eating a variety of foods without worry.

2. Dental implants are strong

Unlike other options, dental implants are the strongest replacement for missing teeth. They allow you to bite and chew many different types of foods without them ever cracking or fracturing.

3. Dental implants look natural

Dental implant restorations are custom-made from highly aesthetic materials to look and feel just like natural teeth. Whether you had one tooth or all your teeth replaced with dental implants, no one will know you don’t have your original teeth!

4. Dental implants improve health

Contrary to dentures or partials, dental implants can improve your oral and physical health. They let you eat a wider variety of nutritious foods and make it easier to maintain proper oral hygiene.

5. Dental implants restore confidence

All the benefits of dental implants make it possible to restore your self-esteem and happiness. Teeth that remain fixed in place will never cause problems or diminish your health. You’ll be able to stay healthy and happy for years to come!
