Studies show that close to 50 million Americans are missing all their teeth, while close to 200 million are missing at least one. Teeth are lost because of injury, poor oral hygiene habits, and trauma. Those who have missing teeth have a hard time with confidence, and because the smile is the most noticeable part of the face, treatment is almost always preferable. At Smiles by Hogan in Mt. Pleasant, SC, Dr. Hogan offers treatment in the form of dental implants that not only improve your smile, but also your overall oral health.

When you choose a treatment option for teeth replacement, you have an extensive number of choices. Dentures, bridges, and crowns are just a few ways that teeth can be repaired, but implants offer security, stability, and durability that is unmatched in any other treatment.

The Benefits of Implants

Many patients are unaware of the more extensive benefits of dental implants, which include:

  • Better oral health: Some treatments require that the natural teeth are altered or reduced to support the new tooth, but dental implants don’t require any changes to intact teeth, which makes it easier to clean and care for the teeth you have left.
  • Durability: If they are cared for correctly and placed right, implants can last for a lifetime. While the upfront cost may be higher, it pays off in durability and longevity.
  • Improved comfort and speech: Dentures may slip around when you least expect it, but dental implants are rooted in the jaw and function exactly as your natural teeth would, so there are no concerns about embarrassing movement when talking or eating.
  • Bone stimulation: The root of the tooth is in the jawbone; once it is removed, the bone may start to deteriorate. Implants are placed directly in the jaw, and over time, the bone heals around the titanium rod and continues to grow.
