I often recommend dental implants for a missing tooth or teeth. While implants require more of an invasive procedure than dentures, they provide long-term advantages unmatched by any other solution.
Many people are unaware of the health benefits dental implants provide when a tooth or teeth are lost. Because an implant is fused to the bone, it stimulates the function of the tooth beyond appearance and chewing. Implants actually replace the root of the tooth, providing a strong foundation to match the rest of your smile.
After losing teeth, the jawbone begins to decay and gums recede. Dental implants keep your face from appearing sunken and hollow. With this option, there is also no appliance removal or cleaning involved. You wont even know the difference between the implant and your natural teeth.
I encourage patients to do their research about dental implants and come talk to me so we can determine the best course of action. Often, an implant case turns into a cosmetic dentistry case and the patient ends up with a whole new smile. If you have any questions or want to schedule a consultation, please contact me here.
