When it comes to dental implants, the first thing many patients fixate on is the restored biting and chewing function. After struggling with eating common foods due to missing or failing teeth, it’s hard to blame someone for fixating on the ability to enjoy their favorite foods again. But the benefits of full arch dental implants extend beyond restored function. Full arch dental implants can enhance your life in many different ways. Take a look at some of the top ways full arch dental implants can elevate your life.
A Fuller Smile
Full arch dental implants to more for your smile than simply filling your mouth with teeth. They can also enhance the structure of your smile.
Natural teeth stimulate the jawbone whenever you bite and chew food. When those teeth are lost, and the stimulation along with it, the jawbones begin to deteriorate and the smile begins to sag. Because full arch dental implants mimic the roots of natural teeth, they can stimulate your jawbone and help regenerate lost bone. The result: full arch dental implants can rollback your smile to decades ago.
A Healthier Mouth
Often times, people hold on to the last of natural teeth, despite the fact that those remaining teeth are failing. Failing teeth are incubators for gum disease and they can negate much of your oral care efforts.
Removing failing teeth and replacing them with dental implants can make it much easier to maintain your mouth. Your brushing and flossing efforts will go further.
A Happier Mouth
Unlike conventional dentures, which are notoriously unstable, full arch dental implants will allow you to cut up food with your teeth. You won’t have to cut up and mash up your food to make it manageable enough to get through with dentures. Simply bite and chew your food the way you used to do and savor every bite.
