A dental implant is a long-term investment in your dental health and your beautiful smile. If you have lost a tooth or teeth, implants are the first step in restoring your unique smile, your ability to chew, your social confidence, and your health.
What is a dental implant? It is a titanium tooth root that permanently replaces your lost tooth root. Once it is bonded with your jaw, we can place a single new tooth on it or use two or more implants to support a bridge or dentures.
Here are six important benefits of this highly successful, reliable technology:
- Gives Natural Tooth Function Back: A new tooth crown on a dental implant performs like your own tooth. You’ll be able to eat your favorite foods and brush and floss like usual.
- Stays Reliable Forever: Your titanium implant is compatible with the human body. It will become a part of your jawbone, and will ideally be able to last the rest of your life for a permanent smile upgrade.
- Slows Down Bone Loss: The jawbone begins to deteriorate under an empty tooth socket unless something is done. The solution? Implants stimulate the bone to grow, strengthening the jaw.
- Protects Nearby Teeth: Teeth naturally start to migrate toward an empty socket, distorting the smile and bite and even causing headaches, in some cases. But a new tooth implant will stabilize your whole row of teeth.
- Fights Gum Disease: An empty tooth socket is a breeding ground for gum disease, and is difficult to clean out effectively. Your new implant and tooth can help protect the area from bacteria.
- Improves Facial Shape: A patient’s face can look older than necessary because of missing teeth. By stimulating the jaw and improving the smile, implants can keep your face looking great for many years.
