A Long-Term Solution for Tooth Replacement

Teeth are unique to every individual. That’s why it’s important to connect with a dentist you can trust to customize your care and help you discover the right plan for your oral health.

For some people with damaged or missing teeth, dental implants are a great choice. Keep reading to find out why you may want to consider dental implants.

About Dental Implants

Dental implants are like artificial tooth roots that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. They serve as a sturdy base upon which artificial teeth (crowns) can be attached, replacing damaged or missing teeth. Here are a few leading benefits of dental implants that many of our patients enjoy:

 

  • They help preserve healthy teeth and facial bone structure. It’s been shown that getting dental implants soon after losing a tooth helps prevent bone loss in that area because it corrects the collapsible “gap” left by the missing tooth and stimulates bone growth. Dental implants also do not require any grinding down of nearby teeth in order to make room for other dental components, such as bridges or partial dentures.

 

  • They are low-maintenance. If you’re hoping to avoid using cleansers, detergents, glues, and other special products required for removable dentures, dental implants could be a better option. Dental implants are taken care of just like regular teeth with ordinary brushing and flossing. 

 

  • Dental implants offer a confidence-boosting, natural-looking solution. Since they are surgically implanted into your jawbone, implants are very secure – they won’t slip or move as you talk, chew, or laugh.

 

  • When taken care of properly, dental implants can last for a long time – decades, even!
