What are Dental Implants?
For decades, traditional dentures have been the common method of replacing missing teeth and helping patients improve both the look of their smile and the function of their teeth. However, as effective as dentures can be, they often cause a number of other problems. It’s hard to make dentures that precisely conform to one’s mouth, which often results in ill-fitting teeth replacements that tend to slip. Plus, dentures involve daily maintenance above and beyond normal brushing and flossing.
Dental implants have changed all that. These state-of-the-art dental treatments are custom-designed for your mouth and are made to serve as permanent replacements to missing teeth. In fact, dental implants are so similar to your natural teeth, you may not even be able to tell the difference.
Benefits of dental implants include:
Permanent teeth replacement
Looks and feels like your natural tooth
Improved chewing and speaking
No extra maintenance
Dental implants can help you smile with more confidence and enjoy a greater variety of foods. Since they affix themselves to your jaw, dental implants actually become part of your mouth, which enables them to both look and act like your natural teeth.
