Understand the Demand and Desire for a Dental Implant

There’s no need to struggle with missing teeth when a dental implant can restore your smile to its full glory. See how a dental implant can greatly improve your smile.

A Better Look at the Dental Implant

A dental implant is one of the most popular tooth replacement options. Simply put, a dental implant is a tiny titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone to form a secure base for a dental crown. Depending on the case, placement can require several months, or the newer same day dental implants allow for results in a single day. While same day dental implants may come with higher dental implant costs, their convenience and ease can justify the expense.

The Many Benefits of a Dental Implant

Today, a dental implant is largely preferred over other tooth replacement options like bridges and dentures because it’s more natural-looking, longer-lasting, and much more comfortable. Even though the cost of dental implants may be initially higher than those other options, their many cosmetic and dental benefits make any extra dental implant costs well worth it to many. The greatest advantages of dental implants include:

  1. Looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth
  2. Longer-lasting than both dentures and bridges
  3. No risk of slipping with wear
  4. Easier to eat and speak freely
  5. No messy removal or cleaning
  6. Protects the health of the jawbone
  7. Prevents face from looking sunken in and old
  8. Improves the face’s natural structure for a more attractive appearance
