Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

A healthy smile is important for successful business life and social life. Unfortunately, as you age, your chances of losing one or more teeth increase significantly, particularly if you have tooth decay or gum disease. But dental implants can save you smile permanently. The team at Roselle Dental Associates in Roselle, IL is dedicated to providing dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore dental function and facial structure.

Although for many years, bridges and dentures have been the answer for lost teeth, thanks to new dental technologies, they are no longer the only answer. Roselle dental patients are finding that permanent dental implants have many advantages over removable dentures. These include:

  • Greater comfort: Because dentures rest on the gums, they can sometimes cause soreness and discomfort. Implants are fused to the jawbone, because of this they do not cause friction on the gums.
  • Easy to maintain: Unlike dentures, which must be frequently removed for cleaning, you can treat dental implants just like your natural teeth. This means you can brush and floss as normal.
  • No need for adjustments: Over time, dentures will wear and may not fit as snugly as they once did so you will need to get them refitted. This is not an issue with implants as they are firmly rooted within your jawbone, so they retain their original function.
  • No bone erosion: When you have missing teeth, bone erosion is a problem because the tooth’s roots are no longer there to stimulate bone growth. With dental implants, however, the titanium post acts like the root of the tooth and so it continues to stimulate bone renewal.

If you like in or around Roselle, IL and you would like to find out more about replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, call Roselle Dental Associates on (630) 893-4200 to request an appointment.
