Dental implants are a great permanent solution for patients who have experienced tooth loss due to gum disease, injury, tooth decay or any other reason. In fact, up to 98% of people nationwide have seen success with implants. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. They are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body.
There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
Improved appearance: Dental implants are designed to look like your natural teeth. In most cases, it will be hard for anyone to know you have a dental implant!
Better comfort: Dentures are often uncomfortable and can slip within your mouth. Implants are created to fuse with the bone in your jaw, so they become part of you. Your implant will feel like your natural teeth.
Restore chewing, speech and digestion: When you are missing teeth, it can be difficult to do simple everyday things like eat and talk. Since dental implants function like your natural teeth, these everyday functions are instantly improved.
Increased self-esteem: Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you regain confidence in yourself.
And most importantly, better oral health: There are risks associated with having one or many missing teeth. Dental implants help reduce that risk and other future problems. Because dental implants imitate natural teeth, they can be cared for similarly.
The process of getting dental implants does require a series of visits over several months. Dental implants are custom-made to fit you, there are several stages involved to ensure they look and feel just right. When your treatment is completely finished, you will receive care instructions. Good oral hygiene, eating habits and regular dental visit will help you keep your implants for a lifetime!
