What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants in Santa Ana?

Improved appearance. Dental implants highly replicate natural teeth in both look and feel.

Improved speech. We have all seen it- slipping dentures causing a person embarrasment while talking. Dental implants, on the other hand, are very well anchored since they are connected to the jawbone itself, so you are worry free.

Improved comfort. Having well anchored replacement teeth means a comfortable smile.

Easier eating. Just like talking, eating can cause dentures to move around in the mouth. This can make chewing difficult and sometimes painful and you may have to refrain from certan foods. Dental implants blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, making eating an enjoyable part of your day.

Improved self-esteem. Dental implants make you proud of your beautiful, natural smile.

Improved oral health. Dental implants don’t require a dentist to grind other teeth down, as a tooth-supported bridges do. Since nearby teeth are not modified to support the implant, more of your mouth is left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access with flossing and brushing, improving oral hygiene.

Durability. Durablity make dental implants last for years. If you have good oral hygiene, many implants can last a lifetime.

Convenience. Removable dentures can be messy, especially with the adhesives used to keep them in place. Dental implants neutralize this inconvenience, mimicking natural teeth.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

The answer: it depends. Ususally, a person who is in good enough shape to come out of a basic dental extraction or oral surgery without detrimental problems can be considered for a dental implant. Habits of good oral hygeine and dental check ups are necessary to get and keep good dental implants. Since dental implants deal with gums and the jawbone, healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant are important. Talking to Dr. Nicolas about dental implants is a good start to considering this procedure.
