Do you have missing teeth, but are unsure of the best way to go about restoring your smile to its former glory? If so, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that adults aged 20-64 have an average of decayed or missing teeth. Having these oral issues means you’re at risk for jaw bone loss, as missing teeth can lead to the deterioration of the bones holding your facial structure together.

Dentures are one way to fix this problem, but a far better, more comfortable and effective solution is dental implants. Allow us to share a few reasons why implants are such a great way to fix missing teeth.

Implants last forever

Dental implants are great options for replacing missing teeth, due to the fact that they last for so long. If you take care of them the same way you would your normal teeth, you’ll never have to worry about losing your implants.

They look real

Everyone likes to make jokes about dentures, but the fact of the matter is those jokes have basis in fact. Dentures don’t look nearly as real as implants, and they don’t provide the jaw bone support an implant does. In fact, implants look so real the only person who can tell you have an implant is another dentist!

They’re easy to maintain
Dentures require creams and constant refitting, and if you wear them for a good chunk of your life, you’ll likely have to replace them. Implants, however, require only regular maintenance, just like your normal teeth.
