The Benefits of Dental Implants

Don’t let a few missing teeth ruin a great smile. Dental implants are a safe, effective way to restore an even, bright smile while avoiding the fuss of dentures. Board-certified dentists Dr. Michael Tyler and Dr. Jared Gibbons of Granite Hills Dental Team specialize in beautifying grins in the El Cajon, CA area, and can help you obtain the best implant for your mouth.

Why Would Some Consider Dental Implants?

Chewing Food Has Become More Difficult

  • Often, patients experience tooth loss and decay. Because fewer teeth are available, chewing your food well can become a difficult task. Dental implants will help you restore proper chewing and aid in healthy digestion.

Facial Muscle Movement

  • Tooth loss can cause the muscles of the face to collapse against the mouth. When this happens, the features of the face begin to change. Dental implants assist in maintaining your natural appearance.

Speech Is Not Easy

  • The migration of mouth tissues leaves many individuals with impaired speech. The muscles and skin can get caught between the gums, making it possible to hurt oneself while talking. Getting dental implants support the tissues and bring back clear audible pronunciation. 

Here are some outcomes to expect after getting dental implants:

  • Implants feel very natural once they are installed and the patient’s gums have healed.
  • Dental implants are cavity resistant and require no extra care than brushing and flossing twice daily.
  • They help to restore natural functions -- bite, chew, and talk to your heart’s content.
  • Many patients report decreased anxiety in their appearance, making it more likely for them to smile!
