Why Dental Implants Are Nothing to Be Embarrassed About

Dental implants are one of the most popular tooth replacement options. They’re a favorite of patients owing to their incredible durability, realistic feel, and bite force comparable to natural teeth.

However, replacing teeth that have been missing for a while can make some people a little bit nervous; after all, it’s a change that everyone around you is bound to notice. That said, improving your smile is nothing to be embarrassed about, especially when it comes to dental implants! Here’s why that’s the case.

Dental Implants Look Incredibly Realistic

When looking into tooth replacement options, dental implants stand apart in terms of their realistic look and feel. While dentures and bridges can look excellent, dental implants are made of high-quality porcelain and are affixed directly to the jaw, much like natural teeth.

As a result, most people will be completely unable to tell which one of your teeth isn’t natural if they’re meeting you for the first time. That means there’s nothing to be self-conscious about!

Dental Implants Don’t Decay

There’s nothing worse than opening your mouth wide and having someone see the little black cavities dotting your teeth. Thankfully, dental implants are made of porcelain, which is resistant to decay. As a result, you don’t have to worry about tooth decay ruining the appearance of your dental implant.

However, it’s still vitally important to take care of your dental implant to prevent the onset of infection, so don’t use their resistance to decay as an excuse not to take care of them.

Eating, Nice and Easy

When you are missing teeth, you may struggle to eat your favorite foods, which can make you stand out when you go to dinner with others. Dental implants can restore a lot of your bite force, which can give you a completely new relationship with food. This will reduce any embarrassment you feel during meals.

As you can see, dental implants are nothing to be embarrassed about; if anything, you can use this as an opportunity to gain a level of confidence and security that you may not have had for a very long time.
