Dental Implants – Yuma AZ
Dr.Schmidt and 16th Street Dental Care are proud to offer Yuma, AZ quality dental implant services.
Dental implants are the preferred state-of-the-art tooth replacement treatment of doctors and patients because they are created uniquely to fit in with the rest of your natural teeth. Even if you are missing one or more teeth, more implants can be used to support multiple crowns along the upper or lower arch. A simple visit to your dentist’s office will tell you about the treatment options best suited to you for tooth replacement. Dental implants lead to better health, give you greater self-confidence to show off your beautiful smile and generally improve the quality of life.
Here are some of the advantages and benefits of dental implants:
Implants Are Easy to Care For
Dental implants are intended to be a permanent solution for tooth loss and need oral care just like your natural teeth with brushing and flossing daily. Other tooth replacements may need to be removed overnight for cleaning and soaking. Implants are much more convenient because they will not decay and therefore will never need filling or root canal treatment, like bridgework. With dental implants there is also no need to use messy dental adhesives or apply special creams.
When you lose a tooth it affects the surrounding bone which begins to shrink and become increasingly brittle. This causes the adjacent teeth to loosen over time and changes your facial appearance too. Dental implants can fill out a face that is sunken from missing tooth and even slow down bone resorption. Non-implant supported dentures, such as partials or bridges put stress on adjacent teeth because they need support and hence hastens the process of teeth loss. Dental implants do not rely on surrounding natural teeth and can vastly improve your natural facial features and contours.
With dental implants a minor procedure in the dentist’s office inserts an implant to help it fuse to your bone over the next few months wherein, the implant supported crown feels and looks like completely natural tooth. People with missing teeth or alternative tooth replacement procedures find chewing painful and have difficulty eating foods like fresh vegetables and fruits. Sometimes patients with dentures lose their ability to taste food. This generally throws their body nutrition off balance and messes up digestive system of the body too. Implant teeth restores your ability to eat, speak and smile again.
Greater Self Confidence
With partials and dentures there is the annoying clicking sound and slipping to deal with when left unsupported. With dental implants you will be confidently smiling, eating and talking and comfortably without your teeth falling out. You can socialize, attend business meetings, and dine out without fear of embarrassment from implants slipping or shifting like removable dentures.
You can confidently smile without metal clasps on your partials being visible.
Dental Implants Are Cost Effective
Although dental implants have a higher initial cost, they are a permanent solution to tooth loss without recurring expenses of other treatments options including removable dentures and bridgework which may need to be replaced with time. Take into consideration the time investment required for dental implants compared to alternative tooth replacement treatments and you can easily see why the former is preferred. There are no office visits required for cleanings, adjustments and replacements like with bridges and dentures. Everyone will agree that dental implants are worth it considering they will be of value for your lifetime.
