Benefiting from Dental Implants

While dentures are handy, modern dental implants represent one of the best approaches for obtaining better oral health. When you undergo this dental procedure with Concord Smile, you can benefit from:

  • Permanent solutions. Fumbling with dentures and maintaining dental bridges can both prove to be a hassle. Implants are built to last 30 years, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime! We see this procedure as a long-term investment for patients.
  • No more adhesives. The glue used to secure dentures has been in use for a long time, but recent questions have raised the concerns of what is in this unenjoyable product. Beyond smelling and tasting bad, denture adhesive contains chemicals and minerals such as zinc. Excessive exposure to zinc may lead to a host of neurological problems.
  • Solid lip support. When you are missing teeth, your smile and skin can suffer. Many people complain about wrinkles and lines where the concave appearance sets in from a gap in their teeth. With a fuller appearance, the lips will also look thicker and more natural as well.

  • Better chewing abilities. Dental implants work to mimic your natural teeth, providing a stable surface for eating. Dentures (especially loose ones) are helpful for chewing, yet they are not stable enough to be an effective tool. Implants work to deliver more biting force, making eating a much more enjoyable experience.
  • Excellent fit. The pain and discomfort from improperly fitting dentures can hamper a patient’s quality of life. By fitting and securing your dental implants properly, our experts are able to provide a comfortable fit that provides a lifetime of quality.
  • Bone structure retention. As we have mentioned before, a missing tooth will lead to resorption, where the bone begins to resorb and neighboring teeth begin to drift into the gap. If left untreated, severe malocclusion can occur, where the teeth become very misaligned. Malocclusion can greatly impact a person’s quality of life.

There are many benefits surrounding dental implants, yet the procedure isn’t flawless.
