Millions of people suffer from tooth loss around the world. Some of the causes of tooth loss include gingivitis, tooth loss due to injury, and tooth decay. For many years, the options available for treatment of these problems were bridges and dentures. Now, however, people have a much better option. Dental implants can make a person’s teeth look a lot better. There are several advantages to having dental implants. One of the obvious benefits of having dental implants is the fact that your teeth look better. They look and function like your own teeth and are permanent structures in your mouth. They also help with your speech. Dentures can slip out of your mouth when you are speaking which is not only embarrassing, but it also causes people wearing dentures to slur their words at times. With dental implants, there is no worry that teeth will slip out of your mouth. Finally, dental implants will make it much easier to eat. Dentures can slip out of your mouth when you are trying to eat food that is hard or crunchy. With dental implants, no foods are off limits. You can eat confidently without fear of the food or dentures coming out of your mouth.
