Dental implants are done to improve a patient’s smile and usually their self esteem. Having missing or bad teeth can be quite embarrassing. Dental implants also can be done to improve oral health. Many people find it easier to eat with dental implants. Their speech can also be improved. Dental implants are also more comfortable because they are made to become permanent.
When done correctly, and with proper care, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash when you have implants. Patients still need routine dental checkups to keep their implants healthy.
Why should I consider dental implants?
If you’ve lost a tooth due to injury or tooth decay, there are many reasons to consider dental implants. Once you lose your tooth, your dental structure weakens and over time can cause teeth to shift and loosen from their natural position. Choosing a dental implant will maintain the integrity of your dental structure by supporting your neighboring teeth. Dental implants provide a natural-looking and feeling tooth replacement that can offer a more permanent solution as they can last decades with proper care.
Dental Implants are one of dentistry’s longest, more reliable forms of treatment used to replace teeth that have been lost or teeth with damaged roots. These durable mounts are shaped like that of a screw and securely embedded into your bone, just as your natural teeth roots are, and then attached to the replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. Implanted by a team of dental professionals, your new implant will look, feel, and function just as natural teeth do.
