Top 7 Benefits of Dental Implants

benefits of dental implants

At Carter Yokoyama, DDS, we pride ourselves on providing the best treatments possible for patients. Among these treatments includes dental implants. When a patient loses their tooth, they must replace it otherwise they will find it difficult to eat, speak and even smile normally. We recommend dental implants for replacing those teeth for several reasons. Whether you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or even an entire jaw of teeth, there is a dental implants solution for you. Find out all of the benefits of dental implants at our Kailua-Kona dental office.

Improve Appearance

One of the top reasons a patient will seek out dental implants is to improve the appearance of their smile. When you have a missing tooth, especially one in the front, you will become self-conscious of your smile and find it difficult to show your teeth because you are embarrassed. With dental implants, your teeth are placed and you are given a completely natural looking restoration. Restore your smile and allow yourself to smile freely once again.

Improved Speech

When you have missing teeth, it can affect the way you speak. Patients commonly experience a lisp with missing teeth. One of the best ways to solve this problem is by getting dental implants. Dental implants restore your missing teeth in the most natural way, giving you back all you need to speak normally.

Improved Comfort

If you had partial or full dentures prior to dental implants, you will find that dental implants are immensely more comfortable. The dental implants will secure your dentures, bridge or crown so that it cannot move out of place. This is appealing to patients who have dentures because of the insecurity they feel about their dentures falling out. That is in the past. Your new restorations with dental implants are permanently secured to the implant, giving you a sense of security when you eat, speak or smile.

Easier Eating

Another top benefit of dental implants is the ease of eating. When you have missing teeth, it can become quite difficult to eat normally. You may just avoid any foods you need to chew in general. This can leave you with eating unhealthy foods and a very limited diet. When you replace those missing teeth, you can once again enjoy a variety of foods including steaks, corn on the cob and even apples. Patients who had dentures before will enjoy eating with their dentures secured in place without worrying they will fall out.

Improved Oral Health

When you choose dental implants as your restorative treatment, this helps your jaw generate bone mass. As a result, your other teeth will have a strong jaw to hold their roots in and your face will stay youthful. Without that bone mass, your face can begin to droop and show early signs of aging. To maintain a youthful appearance, consider dental implants.
