Do you need to replace a missing tooth but aren’t sure if a dental implant is the best option? Dr. May Yazji-Corey and Associates, your Cooper City, FL dentists at Miracle Dental Center, explain how you can benefit from implants.

Dental implants help boost your self-esteem

Looking in the mirror after you’ve lost a tooth can be depressing. In fact, you may feel so self-conscious about the gap in your teeth that you may even stop smiling. Dental implants restore your smile and help you feel more confident in social and business settings.

Implants keep your jawbone strong

Your teeth exert constant pressure on your jawbone, which helps keep it strong and healthy. After you lose a tooth, the section of the bone underneath no longer receives any stimulation and eventually begins to shrink and weaken. Over time, this can lead to facial sagging and the loss of further teeth. Because dental implants replace your tooth roots, they provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to remain strong. Once your new dental implant bonds to your jawbone, your Cooper City dentist places a crown, or artificial tooth, on top of it to replace your tooth above the gum line.

Implants restore normal biting and chewing

You may be surprised just how difficult it is to bite and chew after you lose a tooth. Dental implants restore your ability to easily eat any type of food, even very hard foods. Since the crown is securely anchored to your implant, your new tooth won’t move when you take a bite of steak.

A dental implant may be the best choice for your wallet

Dental implants can be more expensive when you compare the cost to that of dentures or bridges, but it’s important to look at the lifetime costs of each tooth replacement option. You’ll need to replace dentures or bridges several times during your life, while your implant will probably last the rest of your life.
