Dental Implants Are As Strong And Natural-Looking As The Real Thing
If you lose a tooth, are you just stuck having an empty space in your mouth for the rest of your life? Fortunately, the answer is no. A dental implant can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking tooth that will last a lifetime. This helps prevent health issues and restores your confidence.
If you lose a tooth, leaving that space open can cause significant health issues. If no implant is placed, you will experience bone loss in your jaw. Bone loss continues over time and can even cause your face to sag. An implant replaces the root, not just the tooth, which stimulates normal bone growth.
A dental implant also helps keep the teeth surrounding it stable. If there’s an empty space, your other teeth might lean over toward the gap. This can affect your bite, your ability to eat without pain, and how long your other teeth last.
Because implants are bio-compatible, they are non-toxic and you don’t have to worry about your body rejecting them. Even people who have been told in the past that they don’t qualify for implants may find that things have changed. Bone reconstruction and technology have advanced so that most people can take advantage of this solution.
Some patients, however, are not ready for dental implants right away. If you have any of the following conditions, we will have to address it first before you can get your makeover.
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Insufficient bone mass in the jaw
- Enlarged sinuses.
