If you are missing a tooth, chances are that someone has recommended a dental implant to you or mentioned dental implants as a possible option for tooth replacement. So, if you heard about it repeatedly, you probably wonder what is the fuss about dental implants anyways? Are they really that great?
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are one of the most effective tooth replacement options available, not only because they look great and blend in with your smile, but also because they restore the health and function to your smile more effectively than other options.
When you lose teeth, you start to lose bone, as well. Because your jawbone and teeth are in a relationship with one another, they depend on each other to maintain function and support. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone in the area where that tooth once was can begin to recede, which puts your other teeth at risk.
Placing an implant in that area of the bone can help to retain it and stabilize the area, protecting your surrounding teeth by reducing bone loss and preserving the space where your tooth once was.
Dental implants are also beautiful. Dr. Jason Keledjian creates each dental implant individually to match it perfectly with your smile.
