or more of your teeth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. It can also be
damaging to your oral health, since the longer you go with missing teeth,
the more your jaw bone will degrade. Fortunately,
you don’t have to settle for the problems that come with tooth loss because
there are a variety of tooth replacement options out there, including dental implants.
tooth replacement options, implants are designed to restore dental function by
filling in the spaces left behind by missing
teeth. But unlike other tooth replacement options, implants are placed
directly inside the jaw bone where they eventually fuse to the bone and provide
exceptional strength and reliability. They also keep the jaw from degrading by
supporting healthy bone mass. Here are a few of the benefits implants offer,
and tips for determining whether you’re a good candidate for implant placement.
Dental Implant Benefits
already mentioned how durable implants are, but they offer many other benefits
as well. Here are a few:
Improved oral function and health
concerned about the cost of dental
implants, keep in mind that they are a long-term solution and are known to
last up to 20 years or in some cases even longer. Implants are the only type of
tooth replacement that can prevent your face from changing shape due to jawbone
degradation after tooth loss. Implants are a worthwhile investment that can
improve your oral health and appearance for the long term.
Find Out if You’re a Candidate
If you’re generally in good health, have healthy
gum tissue and no signs of periodontal disease, you’re probably a good
candidate for dental implants.
Before you can receive a dental implant, you need to undergo an examination to
make sure you have adequate bone density. If you have insufficient bone mass to
support an implant, you may need to have a bone graft placed in the affected
area. To schedule your consultation
