Preserving your natural teeth is always the preferred way to keep your smile healthy. Sometimes, unfortunately, your only option for treating a tooth is to have it pulled. In those cases, the next best thing to your natural teeth is to have dental implants placed. Dental implants are designed to be very sturdy and to resemble your natural teeth as closely as possible.
How are implants like natural teeth?
Made to last – If you keep your implants clean and take good care of them, they can last for a lifetime!
Strong – Implants restore your teeth like a natural tooth by being surgically placed into your jawbone like an artificial root. The jawbone attaches to the titanium of the implant, making it stay fused in the bone permanently.
Not removable – Implants stay in your mouth like natural teeth so you can eat, drink, talk, brush and floss like you can with your natural teeth!
Eliminate the need for additional dental work – Other ways of restoring your teeth will require your dentist to alter other natural teeth to support those restorations, such as bridges. Not with dental implants! Instead, implants stand independently where your natural tooth once was. This prevents the need for treatment on adjacent teeth.
Crowns resemble natural teeth – The crown on top of your implant looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth. It is carefully matched to your smile’s shape and color.
Have you had a tooth pulled recently? If so, consider a dental implant to replace it. They are made to last for life, and look great at the same time. Call your dentist today to schedule an implant consultation and find out if they are right for you.
