Top Reasons to Choose Dental Implants in Charlottesville

added on: March 12, 2013

Our average life span in the U.S is currently over 80 years of age. In 1965, life expectancy was 65, and in 1990 it was 78. Tooth loss is one of the results of aging and as the population ages, so do the number of people who have lost some or all of their teeth.

Tooth loss is devastating emotionally and physically. Our social life suffers because we can’t speak or eat normally. We start aging prematurely because the face has lost the support that teeth had given it.

Dentures are a common solution when at least one quadrant of your teeth has been lost. It’s estimated that by the year 2020, 61 million dentures will be made and placed, 5 million more than in 2010. But dentures are often an inferior solution.

Dental implants in Charlottesville can be used to replace one, several, or all of your teeth. A dental implant is basically a man-made replacement for the root of your tooth, topped off with a porcelain crown permanently attached. It will match your existing teeth, or if you’re replacing all your teeth, will likely be even more beautiful and functional than your real teeth were. Some of the advantages of dental implants are:

  • Restore natural speech and eating. With implants, you can speak and eat naturally, without worrying that your dentures will slip.
  • Preserve your appearance. Implants replace your tooth roots, maintaining the bones, preventing premature sagging and wrinkling.
  • Improve self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Maintain their strength and longevity. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

If you need one or more teeth replaced, call our Charlottesville dental office to be evaluated. Dr. Kayton will discuss all your tooth replacement options with you, especially beautiful and functional dental implants.
