Dental Implants Can Transform & Strengthen Your Smile
If you've lost one or more teeth, dental implants can provide you with the long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing restorative solution you've been looking for.
What are dental implants?
Titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone, dental implants take the place of tooth roots and fuse with your natural bone. Providing a solid foundation for a dental crown that will cap the implant and restore the look and function of a natural tooth, this replacement option not only improves the appearance of your smile, it also prevents deterioration of your jawbone.
How can a dental implant benefit your smile?
Dental implants have a number of benefits over other tooth replacement options. They are stronger and more durable than dental bridges or dentures and they don't require support from adjacent teeth, as dental bridges do. Dental implants are also permanent, and they prevent shifting in nearby teeth, which can lead to oral health issues that include increased risk of decay and TMJ.
Is there an ideal candidate for dental implants?
These restorative prosthetics can benefit people of all ages, but they are especially popular among older adults who have lost one or more teeth. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, about 70 percent of dental implant patients are between the ages of 40 and 69.
How should an implant be cared for?
Once placed, it's important to take care of an implant as you would your natural teeth by brushing twice and flossing once daily, and visiting us bi-annually for checkups and cleanings. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
