Dental implants are an excellent long-term solution for many patients to restore missing or severely damaged teeth. Compared to other options to replace missing teeth, dental implants provide our patients with many benefits, including:
- Durability. Dental implants function like your natural teeth because they are rooted in your jawbone like natural teeth. With implants, you can enjoy the same foods you have always enjoyed.
- No slipping. Because dental implants are permanently attached, you do not have to worry about the slippage that can occur with dentures. Your speech may improve and you can enjoy a more comfortable daily experience.
- Easy to care for. You can brush and floss dental implants just like your natural teeth. No need for messy adhesives or extra cleansing steps.
- Prevents further bone loss. Dental implants take the place of your tooth root and natural tooth, so it can help prevent further bone loss in your jaw and prevent the sunken in look that often occurs with missing teeth.
