Learn about dental implants from your Brownsville dentists.

Embarrassed by missing teeth? Dental implants are the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth and will do you and your smile a dental imlpantsworld of good. Dr. Humberto Nunez and Dr. Crystal Villarreal at Westlake Family Dentistry in Brownsville, TX, offer state-of-the-art dental implants to their patients. Here are the five best reasons to choose dental implants.

1. Beautify Your Smile

Missing teeth can ruin a beautiful smile. If you have an unattractive smile, it can affect the way you feel about yourself—and how others perceive you. Dental implants can fill in the gaps in your smile and improve your appearance. And when compared to other restorative options for missing teeth, implants are the most natural-looking option.

2. Prevent Bone Loss

When teeth are missing, the bone that used to suppot those teeth begins to deteriorate, to be reobsorbed by the body, because there are no tooth roots to stimulate the jaw bone. Implants provide the same function as tooth roots, including stimulating the healthy bone, thereby preventing the jawbone loss.

3. Improve Your Speech

Missing teeth can cause immediate problems with speech, such as speech that sounds mumbled or slurred. They can also make it difficult to pronounce some words. Dentures can also slip and side in the mouth. This often results in mumbling and slurred speech.

4. Improve Chewing Ability

The absence of teeth can make chewing difficult. With dental implants, you will experience improved chewing ability and will be able to chew your favorite foods again. Dental implants are the next best thing to real teeth.

5. Prevent Teeth Shifting

Are your teeth shifting? When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth begin to shift out of place. Unevenly spaced teeth could cost you a fortune down the road in orthodontic treatment. Dental implants can prevent your healthy, natural teeth from drifting out of place.
