Advertisements for dental implants are everywhere now, and you might be wondering: what's the big deal? Dr. Wayne Cook, your family dental implantsdentist in Marion, AR, wants his patients to understand the benefits of dental implants, so he's compiled a few of the reasons that he's proud to offer them at his practice.

Improved appearance

When you're missing a tooth, you're probably less likely to smile broadly for fear of drawing attention to your flaws. Dental implants fill in those gaps seamlessly, giving you the confidence to smile and talk to others. Many dental industry surveys have shown that people consider a healthy and attractive smile to be a measure of success, trustworthiness and likability. Why not let those traits make a statement with dental implants from your Marion family dentist?

Better diet

Missing teeth can cause people to avoid certain foods because of the difficulty that comes with chewing. Unfortunately, this can mean you're leaving out important components of a healthy diet, including meat and raw vegetables. Once your dental implants from your Marion family dentist are complete, total function will be restored to your teeth, meaning you can eat comfortably again!

Tooth protection

Perhaps the most significant advantage to choosing dental implants is the long-term stability you're returning to the rest of your smile. Even one missing tooth puts the rest of your teeth at risk; over time, the teeth on either side of the space will begin to shift in an effort to close the space. This can mean crookedness or even further tooth loss as the jawbone deteriorates from the lack of stability. By filling in the gap with a dental implant, you're replacing the entire missing tooth from root to crown, and your jawbone and the rest of your teeth will thank you for it by staying firmly in place.
