Not only are missing teeth an annoyance when it comes to day-to-day activities like chewing, speaking and smiling, they can also negatively affect your overall health. If you suffer from missing teeth, then it’s time to look into getting dental implants from Dr. Singh at the Periodontal Implant Associates.


The Benefits of Dental Implants


Dental implants are a permanent fix to missing teeth. Essentially, your implant will look, feel and function like a normal tooth. You’ll enjoy regained self-esteem and a better quality of life. You can go back to eating your favorite foods and enjoy the benefits of looking better and being easier to clean. You can be confident again in your smile, without worrying about gaping holes in your sparkly whites.
Next, dental implants help to preserve your jaw bone. When teeth are missing and their roots are not there to stimulate the jaw bone, the bone will deteriorate. Implants help you to keep the integrity of your jaw bone, and the structure of your face. On top of that, implants help you to keep your other remaining teeth in place. When a tooth is missing, the adjacent teeth start to slowly move to fill in the gap. Getting implants may help you save a lot of money on future orthodontic work.
Implant Candidates
You might be a good candidate for dental implants if you any of the following are true:

  • You are missing one or more teeth
  • You have good gums free of gum disease
  • You have good oral health
  • You have good bone density
There are numerous other factors that help determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure, but ultimately you should speak with a professional like Dr. Singh to be completely sure.
