Dental ImplantsWhen it comes to tooth replacement, you likely have several options, such as dental implants, dentures and bridges. Your Kenosha dentist Todd A. Armstrong, D.D.S., S.C. offers all three! Just because you have an option available doesn't mean that it is always the best option for you, however. Here are four reasons why you may need dental implants.

1. You Want to Look and Feel Your Best

Everyone one wants to look and feel their best, and yet this is nearly impossible to do when you have one or more missing or badly damaged teeth--no matter the reason. Dental implants from Dr. Armstrong in Kenosha look and feel completely natural so you can always smile with confidence, knowing you look and feel amazing.

2. You Don't Want to Give Up Your Favorite Foods

Not only can having one or more missing teeth prevent you from enjoying some of your favorite foods, but not all tooth replacement options solve the problem either. With dentures, you still have to be careful when eating sticky candies, popcorn, steak and nut butters. With dental implants, however, you can enjoy whatever you want whenever you want.

3. You Want a Permanent Tooth Replacement Solution

Dentures typically only last five to seven years. Bridges only last five to fifteen. Choose either of these options and you'll be back to visit your dentist in Kenosha before you know it. Don't settle for a temporary solution when a permanent one is needed. When taken care of properly, dental implants last a lifetime.

4. You Care About Keeping Your Jaw Healthy

Another disadvantage of dentures and bridges is that they can cause your jaw to become thin and weak over time. Not only will this lead to a poor dental fit, but it can also increase your risk for oral hygiene problems. Dentures screw into your jaw bone, however, keeping it nice and strong.

If you are embarrassed by your missing or badly damaged smile, don't visit your Kenosha dentist for a quick fix. Call Dr. Armstrong and find out if dental implants are right for you.
