For many years, the only treatment options provided by your dentist for missing teeth were bridges and dentures. While both options are more than suitable for a number of people, dental implants can prove to be far more convenient – especially if you only have a few missing teeth. They are also more comfortable than a standard pair of dentures, and can remove the stigma that just elderly people have “false teeth”.
If you’re tired of having missing teeth and believe your confidence levels could improve as a result of having a full set of pearly whites, read about the five benefits of dental implants below. You might just realise that dental implants could be the very thing you need.
- They can improve your self-esteem
If you’re missing teeth – particularly front teeth – you can lose much of your confidence. Many people choose not to smile in photos, and some people are also less inclined to meet new people as it can involve showing their teeth. If your dentist provides dental implants, they can remove this problem altogether. As the implants are matched to your own remaining teeth, they look just like yours, and anyone you meet will be none-the-wiser.
