Benefits of Dental Implants

When it comes to restoring your smile back to health, dental implants make an ideal solution for improving the look, feel, and function of your teeth. Dental implants act as the next best thing to your natural, healthy teeth by providing the strong and stable support needed to offer a number of advantages, including:

  • Restoring a lost tooth so that its replacement looks, feels, fits, and functions naturally. Dental implants help restore the ability to do common daily activities like speaking, smiling, and eating.
  • Providing a lasting, cost-effective solution. Dental implants can last for a lifetime when supported with proper oral hygiene and dental visits to our cosmetic dentistry in Springfield, Oregon.
  • Enjoying your smile without worry. Having confidence in your smile means never having to worry about the embarrassment that can come from a gap in your teeth. Dental implants can help improve your self-confidence and self-esteem by restoring a brilliant, natural-looking smile.
  • Protecting your bone health. Dental implants rank as the only dental restoration that helps to preserve and stimulate natural bone, actually working to cause bone growth and prevent future bone loss.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants offer an incredibly effective way for Dr. Welch and Dr. Schilt to replace one or more teeth missing as the result of an accident or from dental disease and decay. Patients may want to select dental implants to restore the health and appearance of their smile if they:

  • Hide their smile or feel embarrassed due to a gap in their teeth
  • Have developed trouble eating due to a missing molar or incisor
  • Have developed trouble speaking
  • Want to avoid neighboring teeth shifting or moving to fill the gap made by a missing tooth
  • Want to avoid the loss of the bone structure that surrounds a missing tooth

The ideal candidate for dental implants has healthy gums and adequate remaining bone structure to support the implant. For your dental implant to continue to provide the stability and support needed to improve your smile, it’s vital that you practice quality oral hygiene daily. This means it is vital to brush at least twice a day, floss daily, and schedule regular exams and cleanings at our cosmetic dentistry in Springfield, Oregon.
