Enjoy The Natural Feel of a Dental Implant and Other Benefits

Do Dental Implants Feel Natural in Calgary AB Area

Losing a tooth can be very stressful, especially when it is in your smile zone and visible to others. It is the natural tendency of people to be embarrassed about cosmetic imperfections, including our smiles. But beyond appearances, a missing tooth can lead to many dental health complications you may not have even thought about. Teeth can shift into the gaps, the jawbone can deteriorate, and you can have issues with speaking or chewing. Replacing a missing tooth is essential, which is why people in area of Chaparral, Walden and Legacy AB, visit Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma at Lake Chaparral Dental Care. Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” of tooth replacement, but do they feel natural? Let us look at some benefits of dental implants.

They Feel Natural

Do dental implants feel natural? The answer is yes! Implants are crafted to fit perfectly in the gap created by the missing tooth. Because they are implanted into the jawbone, forming a sturdy anchor, and a custom-crafted tooth esthetic is attached, dental implants feel completely natural and provide full functionality.

Preserve Your Jaw

Another benefit is one which is unique to dental implants. Because they are surgically embedded into the jaw, osseointegration occurs, during which the jawbone fuses to the implant. Because of this, the implant mimics the function of a natural tooth root and provides the jawbone with the stimulation necessary to keep it healthy. Other tooth replacement options cannot replicate this benefit because they rest on the gum line and not within the jaw.

Most Affordable Option

While a dental implant may seem more expensive than other tooth replacement options due to the up-front cost, in the long run, a dental implant is actually more affordable than any other tooth replacement option. This is because of the longevity of implants in healthy adults with healthy oral care.
