Do you or someone you care about need to choose a tooth replacement option but have been struggling with making a choice? While there are many excellent choices to restore your oral health, one in particular is known for providing patients with a permanent solution that closely resembles natural teeth. Read on to learn more about why many of our patients choose dental implants. Even if you don’t need a tooth replacement now, this information could come in handy for the future.
Over the years, dental implants have become a popular tooth replacement option used to restore and replace missing or severely damaged teeth. If you are unfamiliar, dental implants replace the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. The process involves an artificial tooth root being placed into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This is the piece that will ensure that your tooth remains stable. Following a period of healing to allow the artificial post to bond with the jawbone, an artificial tooth is placed to complete the treatment. The type of artificial tooth used will depend on your needs. We may use a dental crown, bridge, or a full or partial denture.
Patients are pleased with their dental implants because they permanently restore their oral health. They are able to enjoy foods they have been avoiding, they experience less discomfort, and they are able to easily clean and care for their teeth. Dental implants are also natural looking and blend in perfectly with the surrounding teeth.
