Implants Q & A
For many adults, having dental implants is the next best thing to having natural teeth. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. Dental implants help you bite, chew, and smile with confidence. They’re sturdy, stable teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
A dental implant is a metal post that a dentist implants into your jawbone beneath your gums. Essentially, it’s the root of your new tooth. Once the post has been installed and your mouth has fully healed, a process that generally takes a few weeks, the dentist mounts a custom-made crown (replacement tooth) onto the metal post. The implants fuse to your jawbone, so they’re strong, stable, and don’t shift in your mouth.
These posts also help other dental work, like bridges and dentures, stay solidly affixed to your jaw.
In addition to feeling, functioning, and looking like natural teeth, dental implants offer the following ten advantages:
- Last longer than other restorative procedures
- Offer a cost-effective solution to replacing a missing tooth
- Help maintain your natural smile and face shape
- Protect your healthy jawbone
- Help keep your surrounding natural teeth healthy
- Help you talk casually and without worry
- Don’t fall out or move around in your mouth
- Are strong and durable for chewing foods you love
- Aren’t vulnerable to cavities with an implanted crown
- Deliver reliable, state-of-the-art results for tooth replacement
It doesn’t matter whether you’re missing a couple of teeth or just one— you could be a great dental implant candidate. Good candidates have healthy gums, and their jaws are finished growing.
You might also be a perfect candidate for implants if you’re ready to replace a bridge or partial dentures, or if you’re tired of having dentures that slip. Women or men in search of a more permanent, long-lasting solution to dental work tend to be great candidates for dental implants. Meet with your dentist to learn more about your options for missing teeth and to see if implant treatment is the best solution for you.
It’s time to take the first step toward a more confident smile and a more confident you. Request an appointment online or call Cosmetic Dentistry Center today.
