Do Dental Implants Feel Like Natural Teeth?

Almost everyone wants a functional, shining smile. Dental implants can give you a beautiful smile, especially if you have damaged, missing, discolored, or crowded teeth. When people consider dental implants, they’re often interested in how they feel once they are in use.  Dr. Stephen Moy and Dr. Sandra Guereca at Moy Dental in San Leandro, CA to help you determine if dental implants are right for you.

What Are Dental Implants?

If you have missing or damaged teeth, dental implants are a technology utilized by cosmetic dentists to improve the function of your teeth while beautifying your smile. There are complete smile replacements, and partial implants utilized when a few teeth are missing due to an injury or tooth loss for other reasons, like gingivitis. Dental implants are beneficial, and often better than dentures because:

  • They have a success rate of over 97% and can last for ten years or more.
  • They reduce the incidence of tooth decay and cavities on adjacent teeth.
  • They help to maintain bone structure and the health of the jaw.
  • They cause decreased sensitivity in adjacent teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Feel Once You Get Them?

Once you have a parietal implant or full implants installed, you won’t feel any discomfort. You’ll only feel the gum tissue surrounding the area where the implant is installed. Your implants function exactly like normal teeth and therefore feel very similar to having real teeth in your mouth.

There is some downtime due to healing where you won’t be able to chew certain foods while the gums heal from the implant surgery, but thereafter, you can smile, eat, and talk as if you never had implants to begin with.
