Advantages of Choosing Dental Implants
Have you recently had a tooth extracted? Or maybe you have learned that you are suffering from extreme decay and need to make a decision about a tooth replacement option. We know that it can be extremely upsetting to deal with tooth loss and extreme decay. We want to help get you on track and choose a tooth replacement as soon as possible. Our first recommendation to our patients is always a dental implant. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement option that can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or even complete arches of teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
Although the process of dental implants is more involved than other options, the results are long lasting and blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. A dental implant provides a permanent base for a replacement tooth, such as a dental crown. Over time, the prosthesis fuses with the jawbone to create a lasting solution. Our patients agree and have chosen implants over many of the other tooth replacement options available.
Advantages of Dental Implants
As mentioned above, dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution. If cared for properly, they can last the rest of your life. They also eliminate the need for frequent repairs to hardware, characteristic of other options such as dentures. Other advantages include:
Keeping Your Jawbone Intact
When teeth are missing, the jawbone no longer receives the stimulation needed to remain healthy. This lack of stimulation can lead to the jawbone deteriorating over time. Dental implants mimic your natural teeth and provide the proper stimulation needed to maintain a healthy jawbone.
Dental implants are cared for the same way as your natural teeth. They can be brushed twice a day and flossed daily. We also recommend a hygiene examination every six months to check on your natural teeth as well as the implant.
No Food Restrictions
Dental implants allow patients to enjoy their favorite foods. The worry of having to watch what you eat is eliminated, as dental implants restore full chewing power.
We believe that all of these advantages make dental implants one of the best solutions to bring back your self-confidence and create the beautiful, natural-looking smile you desire.
