4 Confidence-Boosting Perks of Dental Implants

It’s only natural to feel nervous if you’re missing teeth. After all, a smile affected by tooth loss isn’t a pretty sight. Your gapped grin could be a source of insecurity and even depression. Luckily, a solution to this problem already exists: dental implants can boost your confidence by restoring your smile! You see, these prosthetics have features that improve your body image. To learn more, here’s a summary of four such factors from your local Lynchburg dentist.

Implants Look & Act Like Natural Teeth

Obviously, the biggest confidence-booster implants offer is a restored smile. They fill in your unseemly smile gaps with lifelike prosthetics! Furthermore, they differ from dentures and bridges by fusing with your jawbone. Said fusion – and a porcelain surface – ensures your new teeth look and act like the genuine article.

Once fully secured, implants work well in gatherings, photos, and other situations. You thus won’t have to stress about a fake-looking smile.

Implants Help You Seem Younger

You might not know it, but lacking teeth erodes your jaw. Tooth loss deprives your jaw of the stimulus needed to maintain your jawbone. The resulting erosion can lead to facial collapse – a condition that greatly ages your face.

Fortunately, implants grant confidence by preventing (and reversing) this collapse. Their fusion with your jawbone provides the much-needed stimulus. As such, you can trust them to make your face younger and ease your social anxiety.

Implants Let You Eat and Speak Well

Of course, you need teeth to eat and speak. They give your bite the “oomph” it needs to chew food and pronounce words. Without them, both your diet and speech are severely limited. Such a restriction can then lower your confidence.

Still, dental implants resolve even this situation. They fuse with the jaw enough to be highly stable and not slip or fall. As a result, they act enough like natural teeth to let you eat and speak well. They don’t force you to “re-learn” how to do these things like dentures do.

Implants are Long-Lasting

With some restoration options, replacement work is a genuine concern. Having to often “switch out” your teeth can seem awkward and lower your self-confidence. The worry is even greater if the appliances have a short lifespan.

As it so happens, dental implants are the longest-lasting prosthetic teeth. Their average lifespan is 15-20 years, while well-maintained variants last 30 or more. Therefore, they won’t stoke insecurity with frequent repairs or replacements.

Ultimately, you should trust that dental implants can boost your confidence. They’ll help you leave anxiety behind with the perks listed above!
