Tooth loss impacts your life in many ways, some of which you may take for granted. For example, you might find that enjoying food at your favourite restaurant becomes more difficult when you can't properly chew your food. You might also feel embarrassed about eating with your friends at that restaurant due to the gaps in your smile.
The good news is that dental implants are an excellent solution for restoring your smile, whether you are missing one tooth or many.
Here are some reasons that dental implants in South Calgary might be the right solution for your restoring both your confidence and your smile.
#1: Dental Implants Protect Your Oral Health
When you lose even one tooth, many things are going on behind the scenes you might not be aware of.
First, when you lose a root, your bone has nothing left to support. Without a root to support, your bone begins deteriorating, resulting in less stabilization for neighbouring teeth, eventually leading to more tooth loss.
Next, without a replacement tooth, your surrounding teeth begin to shift and move, causing bite misalignment. When your teeth are not aligned properly, it can result in painful issues with your jaw joint and increase your risk of developing conditions like gum disease or tooth decay.
Tooth implants restore both your tooth and your root, protecting your dental health by keeping your teeth aligned and your bone healthy.
#2: Dental Implants Are the Closest Replacement to Your Natural Tooth
Tooth implants closely mimic your natural tooth in look, feel, and function. You'll enjoy food as you use to and efficiently care for your implant with routine brushing and flossing.
#3: Dental Implants Provide Exceptional Longevity
With regular bi-annual check-ups with your South Calgary dentist and an excellent home care routine, your tooth implants can potentially last for a lifetime. Implant placement is also a reliable procedure with a 95 percent success rate.
