What Does It Feel Like to Complete Your Smile with Dental Implants?

Having a missing tooth or teeth impacts your life in more ways than one. Your self-confidence can begin to fade and everyday functions like eating and speaking become more difficult. However, by replacing your gapped smile with dental implants, the benefits of having a complete set of pearly whites will return to you. But what do they feel like? Read on to learn how dental implants will feel once your teeth are restored.

First Things First: What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a top tooth loss solution that places biocompatible steel posts into your jaw to replicate your tooth’s root. Over time, they begin to blend seamlessly with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This is what gives your newly restored smile stability and longevity.

Once your dental implants have healed, your dentist will connect an abutment to them. This piece holds your new tooth—either a custom-made crown or a bridge—to the top of your implant. Now you have a fully functioning grin!

What Will Dental Implants Feel Like?

Compared to all other tooth replacements like dentures, dental implants are considered the gold standard. But how do they feel in your mouth? Here’s what your restored teeth will feel like:

  • Complete stability: Once the steel posts are securely bonded to your jawbone, you will never have to worry about your new teeth slipping or falling out of place.
  • Enhanced comfort: Your new teeth will blend seamlessly into your mouth, providing structure and relief. You won’t have to deal with gum irritation or sores.
  • Strong bite power: Dental implants return the strength of your natural bite, unlike dentures. You can confidently eat a wide range of foods and be able to digest everything efficiently due to the ability to chew your meal well.
  • Peace of mind:You will have complete assurance that your new smile is here to stay. With proper care and maintenance, they can last up to a lifetime!

As you can see, dental implants offer so many benefits to those who are living with a gapped grin. And the cherry on top is that they will eventually feel just like your natural teeth!
