Considering correcting gaps in your smile? Visit Dr. Mark Gleckner in Florham Park, NJ to discover more about dental implants and what they can do for you. Below are a few reasons why dental implants may have a positive impact on your oral health.

5 Reasons to Get Dental Implants

  • Dental Implants Are Easy to Use and Maintain

Forget about removing them each day as you would dentures. Implants remain in the mouth as you perform your normal activities, like talking, chewing, and drinking. Because implants are affixed to the jaw, efficiency is an advantage over having dentures.

  • A Smooth, Even Smile

Many individuals think dental implants look just like natural teeth. Dental implants are custom-fitted with various choices of colors, sizes, and shapes to choose from to improve your smile. Patients opt for implants instead of other choices because they want beautiful results.

  • Dental Implants Offer Longevity

Many implants are made from different kinds of materials, but porcelain implants can withstand many of the demands made of natural teeth. Diligent oral care will be enough to preserve the beauty and health of your dental implants.

Of course, this means brushing twice daily, flossing, and avoiding hard, sticky foods. Bypassing the overconsumption of alcohol and tobacco helps, as well. Dental implants can last up to 25 years with proper maintenance.

  • They Help with Daily Activities

With dental implants, activities like biting, chewing, and talking are restored. This is because gaps in the teeth can lead to shifting of tissues in and around the mouth, making it much harder to engage in these activities. No more worries about biting down on painful areas of the mouth or swallowing large pieces of food by mistake.

  • Smiling Better and More Often

Your dentist will work with you to get the best implant to fit your smile. That means no more embarrassment about difficult-to-remove stains, gaps or other worries. As your implants are installed you will find that your smile improves, and so does your confidence.
