Learn More About the Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dealing with tooth loss can bring about a range of emotions in patients. When a tooth replacement is needed, it can be challenging to make a decision about the option that is best for your budget and lifestyle. We do all we can to guide our patients towards the option that will be best for their oral health. One replacement option that has benefited many of our patients is dental implants. Dental implants not only mimic your natural teeth, but they are also durable and offer a number of other benefits to patients.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have become quite popular over the past few years. In fact, you may have heard about dental implants or know someone who has received this treatment. If you are unfamiliar with the treatment, a dental implant is used to replace the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. The treatment is a multi-step process that involves placing a post that acts as an artificial tooth root into the jawbone below the gumline. Once healed, a replacement tooth is fixed to the post, completing the treatment.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants today are better than ever and are one of the most effective methods for replacing missing teeth. We are able to treat patients through each step of the process in our office. Patients love dental implants because they closely resemble natural teeth. They restore the function of your teeth, allow you to chew your food normally, and do not require any food restrictions once healed. In fact, you will be able to eat any foods you were avoiding before treatment. When you care for them properly, dental implants can last for decades, if not the rest of your life. The only care required for dental implants, aside from regular appointments in our office, is routine brushing and flossing, as with your natural teeth.
