You know that it can be embarrassing to be missing teeth. In fact, having a missing tooth—or other imperfections in our pearly whites—can be a major blow to our self-esteem. Fortunately, our dentist can provide a number of solutions for a missing tooth. While we recommend considering all of your options, please don’t forget about the benefits of dental implants.

As you probably know, dental implants are designed to match your other teeth. In other words, implants are a great cosmetic option—but they provide several other benefits as well. For instance, implants are designed to feel and look like your natural teeth. As you may know, missing teeth can make certain sounds difficult to pronounce. With implants, you’ll be able to speak and chew comfortably.

Another major benefit of implants is their durability. In fact, many patients are able to enjoy their implants for their entire life. You see, if you care for your implants well—which typically involves simply brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist—they could last for more than 25 years. This can be extremely useful, because if you miss a tooth for an extended period of time, your facial structure could actually take on a hollow appearance.

Finally, please remember that implants are fast and safe. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of dental implants, or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, please don’t hesitate to give New Smile Dentistry a call at (972) 231-9591. Dr. Dawn A. Wu and our team look forward to hearing from you soon!
