Do I need Dentures?

A bright and natural smile is often the key to self-confidence. It is embarrassing to attempt a smile when teeth are missing or discolored. Other dental issues can affect your ability to eat. Poor teeth affect your overall health. You never have to feel ashamed or embarrassed: proper oral care, including the use of dental implants, can have a positive effect on your long-term health and sense of well-being.

Benefits of a Dental Implant

The cosmetic and psychological benefits from a dental implant include looking and feeling better. The process provides for a natural appearance, giving you the confidence to project your best smile. Most adults of any age qualify for dental implants, although it is typically not recommended for children under 18, due to the immature jaw structure and mouth. After that age, anyone may qualify for an implant if the gums are healthy and surrounding bone will hold the implant. Aside from appearance, there are many other advantages for dental implants, such as:

  • Avoid a decline in your facial structure and deteriorating jawbone
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Build self-esteem and confidence
  • Look and feel younger
  • Teeth that are permanent and natural looking
  • Avoid use of partials, dentures, and glues
  • Better eating habits
  • Easy care without fear of cavities or oral disease
  • Permanence of the tooth/implant
  • No unsightly wires (visible when wearing partials)
  • Ward off periodontal diseases and issues resulting from poor, rotted or infected teeth
  • Natural-looking as your regular teeth
  • Comfort in fit
  • Improved speech (partials and dentures can affect how one speaks)

Are Implants a Long, Painful Process?

At a consultation with your dental professional, implant options will be discussed, along with the benefits from the procedure. An implant is typically made of titanium and is matched with the color of your regular teeth in order to provide a natural appearance. The actual procedure is surgical and will require a local anesthesia. There is some small discomfort, but will be given specific instructions for post-surgical care plus support from the dental staff. The surgery may take anywhere from one to two hours from start to finish. Most patients report they feel much better than anticipated after the implant procedure.
