You know that it can be embarrassing to be missing teeth. In fact, having a missing tooth—or other imperfections in our pearly whites—can be a major blow to our self-esteem. Fortunately, our dentists can provide a number of solutions for a missing tooth. While we recommend considering all of your options, please don’t forget about the benefits of dental implants.

Fortunately, dental implants are designed to blend beautifully with your natural smile. This makes them a great cosmetic option since they can help you enjoy healthy, beautiful teeth. However, dental implants are useful for more than improving the appearance of your smile. You see, dental implants will also look and feel like natural teeth. This means they’ll restore function—making certain sounds easier to pronounce and making chewing more comfortable.

Furthermore, implants are extremely durable. In fact, if you care for your implant well, they can last for more than twenty-five years. In other word, with implants, you’ll be able to enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. Similarly, if you’re missing teeth for an extended period of time, your jawbone isn’t simulated and doesn’t grow. This means your cheeks may begin to look hollow and your chin could begin to tilt up.

Finally, please remember that implants are fast and safe. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of dental implants, or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, please don’t hesitate to give Vela Dental Centers Kingsville a call at 361.592.4373.
