In addition to boosting your confidence and enhancing the appearance of your smile, dental implants can also improve your oral health.

Dental implants also reduce the risk of jaw bone atrophy. Jaw bone atrophy can occur when the tooth (specifically the tooth roots) are no longer there to stimulate the jaw bone. Dental implants even make it easier to chew, eat, and speak clearly.
