If you’ve been considering Westminster Dental Implants, there are a few things you should know beforehand!

Dental implants are porcelain teeth that are screwed into your head to replace broken, damaged teeth that you are forced to have extracted, or teeth that have been missing for awhile. At Westminster Dental, you can trust that we will provide you with the best possible care, to ensure you are satisfied with your new smile!

How Do I Know I Need Them?

There are quite a few ways to know you need dental implants, but ultimately it is up to you and what you prefer or can afford. Here are some of the main reasons you may need dental implants:

You have Loose Dentures, Partials, or Bridge

It can be incredibly uncomfortable to try and chew food or carry on a normal conversation with loose dentures or partials, and the annoyance never goes away. Getting dental implants will completely eliminate this issue, causing you to speak, eat and chew like normal again!

You have Missing, Broken or Cracked Teeth

Just having the missing or damaged tooth or teeth present can take an extremely severe toll on one’s self esteem, since your smile is one of the most memorable and recognizable things about you. If you find yourself covering your mouth when you laugh, not smiling in photos, or training yourself to talk without showing your damaged teeth, then dental implants may be a viable option for you! You will feel a whole new sense of self confidence once you repair your smile, and others will notice too!

You Need an Infected Tooth Addressed

Not all tooth infections require extraction, but in some cases, you will find yourself forced to explore the option of getting your tooth or teeth pulled. Of course, you won’t want just an empty space lingering there, so what better reason to get dental implants? You can get both your extraction and implant done within days of each other, so there is barely any space between the old you and the new you!

You’re Tired of Dealing with Dentures

Dentures can be messy, complicated and difficult to keep up with, especially if you have a particularly busy schedule. If you are absolutely sick of the cleanup and care that dentures require, then you have yet another reason to look into getting dental implants! Dental adhesive can be nasty, gummy and messy, and the amount of care that dentures require can be stressful, so why wouldn’t you consider implants?!

Your Face Appears Sunken in

This is probably the worst case scenario, but sometimes the loss of multiple teeth and even the presence of dentures can cause your face to have a sunken appearance. What causes this is the lack of stimulation that dentures give to your jawbone, so you’re left to suffer the inevitable sinking of your skin into your jawline. Getting dental implants can eliminate this occurrence, since it stimulates your jawbone in the way natural teeth do!
