5 reasons to consider dental implants with us in 2023

If you struggle with one or several missing teeth, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made from titanium that is placed in the jawbone. A dental crown is then placed on top to act as a replacement to your missing tooth, helping you smile with confidence again.

Read on to find out 5 reasons why you should use The Barn Dental to get your dental implants…

They appear and function like natural teeth

You will not be able to notice the difference between your natural teeth and the dental implants. They are strong, healthy and enable you to eat your favourite foods again. Having less teeth makes it difficult to bite down and chew properly which dental implants help to resolve. 

They help maintain your bone structure after tooth loss

One of the long-term consequences of missing teeth is bone loss, which can lead to premature ageing and sagging of the face. Dental implants fill the gap(s), preventing your bones from deteriorating. 

Missing teeth can also cause alignment problems because the surrounding teeth will naturally start to move into a gap where a tooth used to be. Dental implants prevent misalignment and become a substitute for your natural tooth root. 

You are tired of your dentures

Do your dentures often slip and make it difficult to speak? Often, dentures can become loose and uncomfortable overtime. This can be caused by bone resorption (when your gums begin to shrink) or from general wear and tear overtime.

The good news about dental implants is because they are a permanent and fixed solution, you will not have to worry about them falling out or becoming loose. They function just like your natural teeth, helping put your mind at ease.
