Let Us Help You Make An Important Decision
Have you or a loved one experienced tooth loss and have yet to choose a tooth replacement option? We know that dealing with tooth loss, whether it is from severe decay, a medical condition, or trauma to the mouth, can leave patients with many emotions. It can be overwhelming to choose a tooth replacement option while experiencing these feelings and trying to determine the expense as well as the need for your lifestyle. Although we provide a number of wonderful options to replace teeth, there is one choice that is popular among patients and provides a number of benefits. Read on to learn more about dental implants and how they can restore your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
If you have experienced tooth loss and are struggling to choose a tooth replacement option, or have postponed treatment and are looking to restore your oral health, we may recommend dental implants. If you are unfamiliar, dental implants are used to replace the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. The implant post is placed into the jaw below the gumline, and over time it will fuse with the bone to create a lasting, permanent solution. Once the tooth has healed, an artificial tooth structure, such as a dental crown, is placed on top to complete the treatment.
Advantages of Dental Implants
When choosing a tooth replacement option, patients often request a permanent solution. Dental implants are not only a permanent solution, but they are also extremely durable and will last for decades, if not the rest of your life, when cared for properly. The only care required following a completed implant procedure is to visit our office for your regularly scheduled hygiene examination appointments and to clean your implant as you do your natural teeth. Other advantages of implants include:
- The ability to eat your favorite foods with no restrictions
- No need to update hardware or worry about continuous repairs
- No concern of jawbone loss
We believe all of these advantages make dental implants one of the best tooth replacement solutions available to create the beautiful, natural-looking smile you desire.
