Benefits of Dental Implants


Rendering of jaw with dental implant at Revive Dental and Implant Center in Charleston, West VirginiaLosing a tooth is never fun, be it from disease, decay, an accident, or needing an extraction. Living without teeth can add difficulty and frustration to previously simple everyday routines (flossing, brushing, chewing, drinking, etc), making them less enjoyable. Furthermore, it’s common to grow self-conscious about one’s looks in social situations out of personal embarrassment. All too often, people don’t appreciate the many little ways that teeth are necessary for a positive quality of life until after they’re lost.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to dentures. Dental implants have been a favorite option for tooth replacement among both doctors and their patients since 1965, proving themselves safe and effective. With them, you may look forward to a bright future with a new smile that is the picture of health and beauty. Our team at Revive Dental and Implant Center works to give consistent satisfaction, whether it’s in restoring a single tooth, a whole set, or providing your upper and lower jaw with removable prostheses.

Should you or a loved one decide to seek information on dental implants, please call us today to answer any questions or schedule an appointment at (304) 467-4265.

Why Are Dental Implants Important?


Our level of quality in tooth replacement speaks for itself, and the results go beneath the surface. On top of cosmetic benefits, patients find that implants are virtually identical in function to real teeth, keeping your facial bone structure and remaining teeth’ balance intact. The surrounding teeth react to the loss of one, and leaving an open space for an extended period will lead to them moving out of their natural position.

This becomes a problem when it advances into further dental conditions such as deterioration of the jawbone, bone loss, and tooth misalignment (also known as occlusion). To prevent these issues and keep one’s jawbone stimulated, a dental implant must be applied to restore this balance. Apart from physical assistance, patients also report a much needed psychological boost, and are able to live their lives and socialize confidently again without fear of awkwardness or showing off their smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants


•  Appearance - Implants look and feel just like the genuine article, modeled off your real teeth as closely as possible and fusing into the jawbone over time.
•  Speech - Unlike poorly fitting dentures, which can cause your teeth to slip out of alignment inside the mouth and lead to slurred speech or mumbling, implants are properly fitted to let you speak comfortably.
•  Comfort - After application of implants into the jaw, you’ll no longer feel the discomfort that often comes from removable dentures or other subpar prostheses.
•  Chewing - Sliding dentures can add needless frustration to eating, but implants help you comfortably enjoy your favorite foods as you normally would without discomfort, pain, or concerns about appearance.
•  Confidence - To reiterate, implants can restore any self-esteem lost in the absence of a tooth and even improve over your original smile. There will be no need to worry when interacting with other people.
•  Oral health - Whereas a tooth-supported dental bridge may require a reduction or other alteration to your other teeth to support the structure, an implant has no such drawback. By keeping the other teeth fully intact, your overall dental health will benefit long-term. Additionally, accessing the space between each tooth while brushing and flossing makes maintaining oral hygiene easier overall.
•  Durability - Implants are constructed to be very tough, the average one lasting for several years. If you take proper care of it as you would your natural teeth, it could last you the rest of your life.
•  Convenience - Implants eliminate the need to suffer any embarrassment from removing dentures or putting on often messy adhesives to keep them in position, publicly or in private.
