Did you know that dental implants are tooth replacements designed to withstand the rigors of chewing and speaking for the rest of your life? Although dental implants can be damaged, they are extremely durable and capable of lasting a lifetime. If you have any lost or missing teeth, consider the following benefits that dental implants can provide:

-Dental implants fill in the gaps left behind by lost or missing teeth for a full smile and strong dental profile.
-Dental implants are connected directly to your jawbone for a lasting hold that can withstand tough or hard foods.
-Leaving voids in your mouth where missing teeth once stood can be dangerous for your oral health and can even destabilize your gums, causing nearby teeth to move out of position.
-Dental implants are customizable and can mimic the natural look of your teeth.
-Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to weaken and deteriorate over time. Thanks to dental implants, they can restore the lost strength of your jaw and return it to its natural strength.
-A full smile can make you look younger and help to boost your self-esteem.
