About Dental Implants
For many people with imperfect smiles thanks to lost or damaged teeth, dental implants can restore both the look and function of teeth for improved appearance, comfort, and oral health. Implants are made from a durable material to provide patients with a long-term solution that is easy to care for.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Implants support your natural facial structure and help to protect your oral health. When a tooth goes missing, a gap is left in the smile. This is more than an aesthetic imperfection. Other teeth may shift into this gap, causing misalignment and bite problems. The gum left exposed by the missing tooth is also susceptible to infection. A dental implant fills in the space left by the missing tooth. It also helps protect your jawbone from deterioration.
And unlike dentures, implants are permanently fixed. When the implants are inserted into the gum, they are left for a time to heal. During this time, the implant (which consists of a titanium post) fuses with the jawbone for a permanent and reliable hold. The implant will then firmly root your prosthetic tooth or other dental appliance in place.
With implants, you never have to worry about slipping or sliding, taking them out to clean, or losing an essential part of your smile because you left your teeth in a cup somewhere. Implants function much like your natural teeth. Simply brush, floss, and properly care for your implants along with your natural teeth for a healthy smile that can last a lifetime.
Implants also help to improve your ability to chew, speak, and smile with ease. Completing your smile will give you more than just a confidence boost. It will make your daily life easier, reduce any oral discomfort or pain, and help to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
