What Dental Implants Offer
It's impossible to overstate the importance of replacing a missing tooth. A lost tooth isn't just a cosmetic concern- it can cause serious long-term dental health problems. Fixing the problem can keep those issues from developing, but only if it's done right.
Dental implants are tooth replacement done right. Implants offer a number of advantages over traditional teeth replacement options, including:
- Strength and durability: Dental implants are made from strong, durable materials- namely, porcelain and titanium. And they are placed deep within your jawbone. This means your implants will be exceptionally durable and long-lasting. If you practice sound dental hygiene, your implants can last you for the rest of your life.
- Jawbone maintenance: One of the most frightening consequences of a lost tooth is the loss of jawbone density that's associated with it. Dental implants stop and reverse that degradation- they're placed in your jaw and slowly integrate with it. By contrast, dentures do nothing to affect the loss of jawbone density.
- Ease of maintenance: Many tooth replacement options are inconvenient or unpleasant and require significant maintenance. By contrast, dental implants can be maintained through the application of simple dental hygiene. Brush at least twice a day, floss daily and see your dentist at least twice a year and your implants will serve you well.
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, and Dr. Greenhalgh will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and gums to ensure that you are a viable candidate. But if you are, dental implants almost certainly represent your best option for tooth replacement.
