5 Benefits of Dental Implants Over Other Treatments

Tal Lewinger - Friday, March 02, 2018


When we damage our teeth, there are a lot of different options out there for us to choose from. However, some methods are better than others. When we lose teeth it can be a traumatizing and uncomfortable experience, but it does not have to be. Dental implants can give you back the smile that you loved without a lot of the nasty side effects that come with other forms of treatment. Here are five of the best reasons why dental implants are your best option when it comes to missing teeth.

  • 1.Appearance

Losing our teeth can be difficult. Having missing teeth can make us look a lot older than we are or even make us look sick. It can be a real detriment to our self-esteem and our confidence. Getting dental implants can give you back your smile instantly. In one sitting you can have healthy looking, perfect teeth back, as though you had never lost any in the first place. Other methods can take time, and even then with things like dentures, they may not fit perfectly. Dental implants fit perfectly, and are the best option if appearance is your main concern.


  • 2.Durability

Unlike other options, dental implants are made to last for up to ten years. With regular check-ups and proper care, dental plants last for a lot longer than other kinds of treatments, and don’t need to be replaced like dentures. A plus is definitely that they cannot be lost.


  • 3.Doesn’t Damage Other Teeth

Treatments like supporting bridges need to grind off parts of the surrounding teeth in order to be fitted. And even things like dentures can grate on your other teeth and gums, damaging otherwise healthy teeth unnecessarily.


  • 4.No Cavities

Not having any more cavities in these teeth is definitely something to look forward to. Although dental implants do need proper care and regular check ups with your dentist, there will be no more threat of cavities. This will save money in the long run on cavity treatment.


  • 5.Better Than Dentures

Another common fix for missing teeth is to get dentures. Dentures can however be just as detrimental to confidence and self-esteem as missing teeth. Dentures can move around a lot in the mouth and irritate the gums, damaging other teeth in the process. Having dentures can also age the person who’s wearing them and they are prone to yellowing more so than other options. Also, taking out your teeth and leaving them around can mean that you lose them or they can becomes damaged, which in the long run makes them a much more expensive option.


Losing teeth can be difficult but when we do our research and know what the best options for us are, we can make the right decisions. Getting back to being comfortable with our smiles, and knowing that eating will not be an issue, is the most important thing.
