Is your smile missing teeth? Dental implants can fill the gaps in your smile. Dental implants are surgically implanted in the jawbone by a dental implantsdentist. Dr. Scott Szatkowski has two convenient offices located Elk Grove Village, IL, and Melrose Park, IL. Here are five extraordinary benefits of dental implants.

1. Beautify Your Smile

Missing teeth can ruin a great smile and make you look old before your time. The absence of teeth can also lead to a sunken-in appearance of the cheeks. Dental implants are engineered to perfection. Dental implants can improve your appearance, and make you look years younger. Who doesn't want to look younger- or better?

2. Easier Eating

The absence of teeth can affect your ability to chew food. Dentures can also make chewing difficult. Dental implants will improve your ability to chew food. With implants, you will be able to eat all the foods you enjoy in comfort and with confidence. Dental implants function and feel like natural teeth.

3. Stop Jawbone Loss

Tooth loss has some serious consequences. When teeth are missing, the healthy jawbone deteriorates. When the jawbone becomes less dense, tooth loss can occur. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevent bone loss in the jaw and stimulate bone growth.

4. Improve Your Speech

If your teeth are missing, you may find yourself mumbling or slurring certain words. Dentures can also cause problems with speech. Implants can improve your speech and allow you to feel more confident when speaking with people. And no more worrying that your denture might slip or fall out.

5. Prevent Teeth Shifting

Dental implants protect your healthy teeth. The absence of teeth can push your existing teeth out of alignment. When teeth are missing, the surrounding teeth start to shift over time. Dental implants prevent neighboring teeth from shifting out of place. Crooked or misaligned teeth could cost you a fortune down the road in orthodontic treatment.
