Dental ImplantMissing teeth? One of the most revolutionary developments in dentistry is the development of dental implants. Dental implants are anchors that are implanted in the jawbone. The great majority of implants are made from titanium or titanium alloy. The Dental Spa, which has offices in Woodbridge, VA, offers dental implants to their patients. Dr. Marv Thomas is one of the top dentists in Woodbridge, VA. Read on to find out what dental implants can do for you.

1. Beautify Your Smile- Missing teeth can affect a person's self esteem. If you have low self-esteem, you may avoid things you find challenging and hide yourself away from social situations. Dental implants can restore your smile, improve your appearance, and make you feel better about yourself. Dental implants have a beautiful appearance. They look like real teeth, and crowns can be made with all-ceramic materials. 

2. Prevent Teeth Shifting- Dental implants will keep your smile healthy. If you don't replace your missing teeth with implants, the neighboring teeth will begin to shift into the empty spaces. This puts your remaining teeth at risk for fractures and damage. Dental implants can prevent your original teeth from drifting out of place. 

3. Stop Jawbone Loss- The most common cause of jawbone loss is tooth loss left unreplaced. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that stimulate jawbone growth and stop bone loss. Dental implants will keep your jawbone healthy and strong. Dentures and fixed dental bridges address the cosmetic problem of missing teeth but do not prevent bone loss.

4. Enjoy Food Again- Our teeth help us break down food for proper digestion. Missing teeth can result in difficulty eating. With dental implants in place, you will benefit from an improvement in oral function. Dental implants function like your natural teeth. With dental implants, you will be able to eat normally again.

5. Improved Comfort- Dental implants eliminate some of the key problems of dentures, including discomfort, gum irritation, sore gums, and poor fit. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not move around inside the mouth. The result is comfort and freedom from embarrassment. 

6. Improved Speech- Missing teeth can cause speech problems, including mumbling or slurring of words. Not so with dental implants, which feel and function like your original teeth. Dental implants can improve your clarity of speech. With dental implants, you will feel confident when speaking with people.
