If you are missing teeth or on the brink of losing one or more pearly whites, dental implants in Richardson are a wonderful replacement option. Nothing else rebuilds the missing structure from the root, up — meaning no other method is quite as stable as a tooth replaced by a dental implant.

There are a number of benefits associated with dental implants, from improved oral health to a more natural-looking smile. One of the best, though, is the improved quality of life that people associate with dental implants. Below, find out how this tooth replacement can really enhance your day-to-day experience — especially if you have suffered from an ill-fitting tooth replacement in the past.

#1: Increased Comfort

Anyone who has lived with a loose denture will tell you it’s just about the worst. Dental implants can secure a denture to keep it from slipping and sliding around in your mouth. This stabilization reduces the risk that you will experience blisters or oral sores — and makes it easier to speak and laugh with ease.

#2: Easier Eating

Dental implants support a balanced, nutritious diet by making it easier to chew all of the items that keep you healthy for life, including fresh fruits and vegetables, crunchy whole grains, and more. You can really feel free to take a bite out of life with dental implants.

#3: Low-Maintenance

You want to spend as little time thinking about your tooth replacement as possible, and dental implants make it easier to concentrate on living. Because they replace your entire tooth structure, a tooth replaced by a dental implant can be cleaned just like you are used to doing — plus, an implant-retained denture will require fewer routine maintenance visits to the dentist overall.  

#4: Long Lasting

When cared for and maintained properly, dental implants can last for decades, or even the wearer’s lifetime. That means when you choose this tooth replacement, you are making a good financial investment as well — something that always boosts your quality of life.

#5: Increased Confidence

All of the previously-listed benefits can boost your confidence and make you feel better about your smile even after tooth loss. Many healthy patients are eligible for dental implants.
