Are Implants the Right Option for You?
If you are frustrated with your dental appearance and long to make a permanent change, dental implants might be the perfect option. Dental implants include two components, the first being an artificial tooth root that is implanted into the jawbone. This tooth root creates a base for the second component, an artificial tooth, or crown, that is permanently placed in the mouth. This can be a welcome alternative to other possibilities, such as dentures or bridgework, that will not give you the lasting results that you might be after. There are multiple benefits to dental implants:
- Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth, so there are no food restrictions.
- If cared for properly, implants can last for many years, even the rest of your life.
- Because they feel so natural in the mouth, the care is the same as your other teeth, with just brushing and flossing daily.
- Gone are the days of using adhesive to attach dentures.
- Reduce the risk of gum disease and jaw deterioration.
