Find out whether or not you should choose dental implants to replace your missing teeth.

Dental implants have become a very popular way to replace missing teeth since they offer a host of benefits that other tooth replacements don’t. If you want a restoration that could last you the rest of your lifetime, then it might be time to talk to our Virginia Beach dentist, Dr. Jason Campbell, to see if dental implants are right for you. Here are just some of the benefits of getting these restorations:

They are durable: While dental bridges and dentures are only meant to last a few years, they will need to be replaced at some point in the near future. However, dental implants can last the rest of your life if you are dedicated to properly caring and maintaining them. Sure, you may still need to come in for adjustments every once in a while, but your implant will last significantly longer than any other restoration.

They are as close to natural teeth as possible: It goes without saying that most patients want to get a dental implant in Virginia Beach that looks and functions similar to a real tooth. After all, you don’t want people noticing that you have a false tooth. Since implants are designed to act just like tooth roots, you’ll enjoy a new tooth that is as close as you can get to a natural tooth.

Protect your smile and facial structure: A smile that doesn’t have all of its teeth can cause teeth to shift around and your face to sag and sink, which can make you appear much older than you are. Fortunately, dental implants will prevent the rest of your natural teeth from shifting around and also help maintain your natural face shape.

Promote good jawbone health: A jawbone that doesn’t have all tooth roots to stimulate it will cause the jawbone to deteriorate and lose strength and density, but dental implants are the only tooth replacement that can actually stimulate the bone and prevent bone loss.

They stay in place: Dentures can often move around or feel less stable than you may have thought. They may move around while trying to eat certain foods or while talking, which can be embarrassing. If you choose dental implants you won’t have to worry about that. Since they naturally fuse together with the jawbone, you’ll have a tooth replacement that won’t move around or make noise.
