We’re all familiar with the allure of a beautiful, confident, and comfortable smile. It’s one of the first things we notice about others and one of the reasons we’re drawn to so many of our favorite musicians, actors and leaders. However, the likes of George Clooney, Celine Dion, and Cheryl Cole all have something in common.

They haven’t merely been blessed with wonderful genes and good luck, but rather have had significant dental work to achieve those million-dollar smiles. One of the most common procedures is dental implants, which offer a host of benefits. Here are some of the top reasons for their popularity.

  1. Confidence

It’s immediately noticeable when somebody is trying not to expose their teeth and lacks confidence in their smile. Implants can restore a great smile, help people feel better about themselves, and boost self-esteem. 

  1. Safety & Predictability

Dental implants have an incredibly high success rate in comparison to alternate options and have become much easier over the years with the advent of new technology and procedures. Anybody with reasonable health is likely to achieve a successful outcome.

  1. Natural and Comfortable

Implants are explicitly designed to look real and operate like natural teeth. They are fitted in a way that replicates the structure of natural teeth, making them extremely comfortable and difficult to distinguish from the real thing.

  1. Durability

Implants, when cared for properly, are likely to last just as long as any other dental restorations with the added benefit of strength and predictability. On top of that, they offer better value for money, in the long-term, than alternate replacement options. Industry leaders like Z-Systems offer permanent solutions designed to last a lifetime.

  1. Convenience

Removable dentures can be messy and embarrassing. Choosing implants, which are permanent and convenient, remove unwanted hassle and awkwardness.

  1. Eating

It would be odd not to mention the impact implants have on the primary purpose of our teeth; eating and chewing. Because they are fixed in the jawbone in the same way that regular teeth are, they work as similarly to natural teeth as is possible, allowing improved chewing.

  1. Speech

Implants are fitted in the most natural way, meaning there are minimal changes in the mouth or obstacles when it comes to speaking. Frequently, dental implants allow patients to speak more clearly and can even solve certain speech impediments.

  1. Bone Strength

Unlike conventional bridgework, implants have little impact on neighboring teeth, therefore preserving bone and preventing deterioration. This maintains jawbone height and structure.

  1. Health

A healthy, full set of teeth not only looks great but can prevent or reverse a host of illnesses. Studies show that people with a complete set of teeth tend to live longer lives.

These are just some of the benefits of implants and offer a glimpse into the growing popularity of the procedure. As with any serious or long-term procedure, it’s certainly worth seeking reputable, industry leaders whose expertise will make it an excellent investment in long-term oral health.
