Advantages of Dental Implants


If you have missing teeth – or if you need to have a tooth extracted – you’ve got a number of options for replacement. Full and partial dentures as well as bridges are all options. They can improve your smile and help to protect your oral health. But perhaps the best option to replace missing teeth is with dental implants.

If you are looking for dental implants in Younge and Eglinton, you simply can’t go wrong with Town Smiles Dental.

Here are a few of the advantages that you can expect when you opt for dental implants:

  • They look and feel the most natural. With dentures and partials, patients sometimes complain that they do not feel the most comfortable in their mouths. They may also be self-conscious about the possibility of dentures or partials moving or even popping out when they speak or eat. But with dental implants, you don’t have to worry about any of this. Dental implants use titanium pets or roots that are inserted directly into the jawbone. Overtime, the bone fuses with them and they become just as solid as natural teeth. And implants look so natural, that you might even forget which tooth is the implant!
  • They don’t require additional care. With dental implants, you won’t have to worry about using any special cleaners or fresheners. To care for your implants, all you need to do is brush and floss regularly – which you should be doing for your natural teeth already!
  • Dental implants are the best option to protect your oral health. Did you know that having missing teeth can actually harm your oral health over time? That’s because when there is no tooth in a particular area of the jawbone, adjacent teeth can begin to shift. Additionally, the jawbone itself can begin to atrophy since it no longer has the “job” of supporting a tooth. With a dental implant however, you can help to preserve both your jawbone and surrounding teeth.
