Why Do I Need Tooth Implants?
– By Meg Boberg
While there are many reasons an El Monte dentist may suggest replacing your missing teeth, teeth implants are the best way to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking its best. Success rates for patients who are considered appropriate candidates for dental implants is 99%, and El Monte Periodontist Dr. Bijan Afar strives to deliver patient satisfaction for each dental implant patient coming to Allure Dental Arts.
In fact, dental implants in El Monte have many advantages, which include:
• Appearance. Who wants a gap in their mouth where an adult tooth used to be? Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, and they are a permanent solution for missing teeth, because they don’t have to be removed from your mouth like partial/or full dentures. You’ll also feel better about your smile, with this permanent solution to missing teeth that look and feel natural. What many El Monte dental patients may not know is that without replacing teeth, either with implants or through sturdy dental bridges, the jawbone can begin to disintegrate, causing even further oral health problems.
• Comfort. With dental implants, you won’t have the embarrassment and annoyance of having to remove dentures or apply messy adhesives. Also, you’ll be able to speak clearly without having to worry about the possibility of your teeth slipping in your mouth. Dental implants are permanent and fuse with your jawbone, so there is no worry of slippage while speaking or eating. Dentures can even slip while not only while talking or eating, but also while laughing, yawning or even kissing!
• Durability. Dental implants are designed to last for many years, and many patients keep their dental implants for a lifetime if they care for them properly. Dental implants are the only long-term solutions for missing teeth, and are often the option patients choose over other less durable teeth replacement methods, such as dental bridges or partial dentures, or root canal retreatment. By speaking to your El Monte dentist, you can choose which option is best for you.
Remember, teeth affect everything in your life, including your appearance, confidence, as well as your ability to eat, speak and enjoy daily activities. When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there is no better option than having dental implants. Dr. Afar strongly encourages those interested in replacing their missing teeth to schedule an El Monte dental appointment at Allure Dental Arts. Consultations are FREE, and Dr. Afar can help determine whether dental implants are right for you when doing a thorough oral examination and by looking over your dental and medical history.
