Research shows that the more confident you feel about your looks, the better you feel about yourself. When your teeth look white and sparkly as well as healthy, you can relax, be in the moment and most importantly be yourself. When you are comfortable with your smile, you smile more often. The mere act of putting your mouth in the shape of a smile changes the blood flow to the brain and actually makes you feel happier. The opposite is also true. When you feel that your teeth and your smile are not attractive it inhibits your ability to smile, simulating a feeling of constant depression. Dental implants have given millions of Americans a second chance at life by making them happier, healthier, and more confident.
Dental Implants have three important parts. First a decay resistant titanium post is surgically placed in your jaw bone where it will fuse to your jaw much like a natural tooth root would. Then an abutment is placed on the end of the post and sits above the gum line. Finally, a dental crown is secured over the abutment. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth and with proper home care and maintenance, can last the rest of your life without needing replacement. This feature can end up saving you money in the long run.
