You know that it can be embarrassing to be missing teeth. In fact, having a missing tooth—or other imperfections in our pearly whites—can be a major blow to our self-esteem. Fortunately, our dentist can provide a number of solutions for a missing tooth. While we recommend considering all of your options, please don’t forget about the benefits of dental implants.

As you probably know, dental implants are designed to match your other teeth. In other words, implants are a great cosmetic option—but they provide several other benefits as well. For instance, implants are designed to feel and look like your natural teeth. As you may know, missing teeth can make certain sounds difficult to pronounce. With implants, you’ll be able to speak and chew comfortably.

Furthermore, implants are extremely durable. In fact, if you care for your implant well, they can last for more than twenty-five years. In other word, with implants, you’ll be able to enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. Similarly, if you’re missing teeth for an extended period of time, your jawbone isn’t simulated and doesn’t grow. This means your cheeks may begin to look hollow and your chin could begin to tilt up.
