There are a lot of reasons tooth loss or decay occurs. Whether you have lost teeth due to injury or have severely damaged teeth because of poor oral hygiene, you deserve to have a healthy, beautiful looking smile again. Dental implants are a long-term, healthy option for many people who have lost teeth.
Should I Get Dental Implants?
If you have missing teeth, dental implants may be the answer to obtaining a great smile again. Whether you have just one or two missing teeth or all of your teeth are gone, dental implants could improve your oral health, your comfort, and your self-confidence. Implants may also be the best way to restore health for those with several damaged or broken teeth that need to be extracted.
Consider the following when determining whether dental implants would be right for you:
Are you committed to maintaining good oral hygiene habits? It’s important to take good care of your teeth so that dental implants can last as long as they’re meant to. Even if you’ve struggled with dental hygiene in the past, it’s not too late to make a change.
Is it time to improve your speech? If you deal with slurred speech or other communication issues, dental implants can help you get back to normal.
Is eating difficult? Do you have to work around missing teeth during meals? Are you unable to eat your favorite foods? With dental implants, you should be able to eat anything you want without worrying about avoiding certain areas in your mouth or whether or not you’ll be able to chew something.
Are you embarrassed by your smile? Everyone deserves to feel great about their smile. You shouldn’t have to close your mouth for pictures or cover your face when you laugh! Implants can help you gain back confidence in your smile.
