3 Unique Benefits of Dental Implants
- Posted on: Mar 30 2017
Sometimes it can seem like things are too good to be true, but when it comes to your oral health, there is no such thing. If you have chipped, broken, or missing teeth, it can make it hard for you to properly consume and digest the nutrients your body needs. Luckily, here at Clear Lake Dental Care, we have a solution that can help fix your dental problems: dental implants. With dental implants, our dentists at Clear Lake Dental can restore not only your appearance but your ability to chew again. With a two-step surgical process, our dentists will surgically implant a metal rod into your gums which will act as the dental root. Once healed after a few months, a crown will be placed on top— the crown acts as your natural tooth. Sound too good to be true? Read on to learn more about three unique benefits of dental implants.
Why Should You Get Dental Implants
They Are Practically Permanent
It’s hard for us to say that dental implants are 100% permanent because depending on the patient and their lifestyle, they may or may not last for very long. If, however, you don’t smoke and take care of your teeth, then your dental implants should last for the rest of your life. Just like your natural teeth, your dental implants need to be brushed at least twice a day and professionally cleaned twice a year.
They Look Natural
Nobody wants to have a mouth full of teeth that look more like Chicklets than actual teeth. One of the unique benefits of dental implants is that they look natural. In fact, we can match the size, shape, and color of your dental implant to your natural teeth. And, if you are particularly wary of how natural dental implants look because you have to have one in the front of your mouth, don’t worry any longer; one of our dentists at Clear Lake Dental Care can match it to your natural teeth so that it blends in.
They Are Functional
Although oral devices like dentures are semi-functional, some patients complain that they can become loose when chewing certain foods. With dental implants, however, patients will be able to experience the same functionality as with their natural teeth. For instance, many denture wearers can’t bite right into an apple without worrying their dentures are going to fall out, but if you have dental implants, you will have no problem biting into a juicy apple time after time.
Schedule a Consultation
Dental implants are a restorative dental procedure designed to give you back your self-esteem and ability to chew. If you have a missing or damaged tooth and would like to learn more about dental implants, call Clear Lake Dental Center today at (281) 557-8097 to schedule an appointment.
