Top 5 Reasons for Dental Implants

Dental Implant: It all started I was sitting in a van in Alaska eating my lunch, I heard a gasp come from the seat next to me.

When I looked over there was my friend, holding his two front teeth in his hands.

I’m gonna be honest, that could possibly be one of my greatest nightmares and there he was living it.

In that instance, I immediately thought to myself that was that. My friend would now be due for dentures at the young age of 24. A hard knock life it would be.

Little did I know he had options beyond dentures and though, in a state of panic at the moment, everything was going to be okay.

With many dental options, my friend came to the conclusion that though dental implants appeared to be a bit more pricey than the alternatives, implants would be the better in the long run as any dentist would also agree.

Toothless Tom’s top five reasons for a dental implant above other leading surgical methods:

  1. Stop your teeth from shifting into the open space while retaining your natural face shape and smile.
  2. Helps you to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about teeth falling out again.
  3. Dental implants fuse with your with your jawbone, meaning you still have a certain amount of sensation when you chew and talk even though it is an artificial tooth.
  4. They look like natural healthy shape and can be matched to the color of your teeth.

And best for last.

5. Going to the dentist is scary. Trust me. No matter how soft the chair looks or how big the TV is to help distract you from hands being shoved into your mouth, it can all be a bit intimidating. But you have my friend’s word that dental implants aren’t as scary as you would think.

The surgical procedure only requires local anesthesia and has a documented success rate of 95%. With a little recovery time you will be as good as new in no time. Plus think about all the ice cream and smoothies you’ll get to drink.
