Dental implants have been around for decades and each year, because of the latest research and technology, the process of placing implants as well as the materials we use are improved. That means that dental implants are now more effective and successful than ever. With proper care and maintenance, your implant could last for decades.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
When you choose dental implants as a tooth replacement option, you are choosing freedom. Dental implants are more like your natural tooth than any other method of replacing missing teeth. The structure looks like a tooth and behaves very much like your natural tooth by making it possible to eat and speak without the concern you may have from other dentistry. No one wants a dental malfunction at a crucial moment!
Dental implants require routine care, but because of the anatomy of implants, brushing and flossing is both easy and convenient. You can brush and floss your implants normally.
Just like your natural teeth, avoiding gum disease is important. Gum disease can kill an implant by causing bone resorption, weakening the implant foundation and potentially causing your implant to become mobile or fall out. Regular professional cleanings and exams will help ensure the health of your dental implant.
Did someone tell you that you do not have enough bone for a dental implant?
I encourage you to call my office for an evaluation, anyway. Unlike most dental offices, I offer bone grafting in order to make implants possible for my patients. Bone grafting is the process of increasing bone levels through donor bone, from either yourself or another source.
When deciding whether dental implants are right for you, you should take into account what is necessary for your lifestyle. If you are social or very active, you may wish to consider dental implants so that your dentistry does not interfere with your life.
