Drs. Joseph O'Leary and Scott Peppler of Meadows Dental Group by Espire of Lone Tree, Colorado, are highly skilled dental professionals who specialize in the placement and restoration of dental implants. They understand that patients choose dental implants for many different reasons, and there are several of advantages associated with this type of treatment that can help you achieve optimal oral health.
Some of these advantages include the following:
- Better stability. Dental implants provide a stable foundation for your replacement teeth because they use the jawbone for support. These restorations will not shift or require additional adhesives to keep in place as they will fuse with the jaw for a permanent replacement.
- A long-term investment. Unlike other tooth loss solutions, dental implants provide a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. This means that once your treatment is complete, you can rest easy knowing that your new smile will last for years to come when you care for your smile and visit your dentist regularly.
- Improved function and comfort. When you lose one or more than one tooth, the remaining teeth in your mouth can start to shift out of place over time. Your dental implants help prevent this from happening by helping to maintain your natural bite and strengthen the surrounding bone structure in your jawline. This improves chewing function while also providing greater comfort during the day and night.
- A natural appearance. Dental implants look and feel just like real teeth, making it easier for you to regain confidence when speaking with others or smiling without inhibition. Many patients also find that dental implants retain bone that eliminates the risk of a "sunken" appearance to the jaw and chin, often seen in long-term denture wearers.
