For many people, missing one or more teeth can affect self-esteem and confidence. If this is you, maybe it’s time to consider dental implants. Smile big and bright again with natural-looking, permanently-fixed artificial teeth
What are dental implants
Imagine artificial teeth that look completely natural, and can be maintained like natural teeth. This is what dental implants can do for you. In simple terms, a titanium metal posts is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of a natural tooth. An artificial tooth is then attached to the fixed implant and anchors the tooth in place. No need to remove to sleep or eat, no special maintenance (other than your normal oral health routine), and no fear of it breaking or cracking.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Wondering whether dental implants are for you? Here’s why you might want to consider them:
- Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. You shouldn’t feel any discomfort, and will probably even forget that they’re there! In fact, chances are that you’ll smile bigger and with more confidence than you did before.
- They’re safe and effective and the perfect solution to missing teeth. They’re more comfortable and way easier to maintain than dentures and bridges.
- Implants are fused to the jawbone providing fixed support for artificial teeth. Unlike bridges or dentures, implants are permanent and do not slip or shift. Inserted by a qualified dentist, you’ll be the only person who knows you’ve been fitted with dental implants.
- Implants do not require any special care above and beyond what you would do for your natural teeth. This means brushing and flossing daily, and regular dental exams and cleanings.
Just like with any dental treatment plan, the first step when you’re considering implants is a personalized consultation. During your consult, we will explain the process and ask you questions about your overall health and perform a full mouth examination. We will look at the health of your gums as well as ensuring that your jaw bone is strong enough to provide the necessary support to the implant.
Since implants are an investment in more ways than one, it’s important that your oral health is in good shape before beginning the process, and that you’re committed to maintaining good oral hygiene while you have dental implants. Our approach to dental implants is safe and conservative, while still drawing on the most current procedures and technologies.
