What are Dental Implants?
Chances are, you’re already familiar with common dentures, but you may not know much about dental implants–another option, and a more permanent replacement for missing teeth. Not just false teeth, they are made of metal posts which are fused to the jawbone, allowing them to act as a natural part of the oral structure. The implant is then covered with a dental crown, which will match the shape, size, and shade of your natural teeth. Implants provide a better, more functional alternative to dentures because you can use them exactly like your natural teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits to choosing dental implants, including:
- Overall Oral Health – Dental implants help protect your jawbone, and they also keep your other teeth from shifting out of place.
- Better Appearance – Missing teeth can make the face look sunken or weathered. Having a full smile can help you avoid that worn appearance.
- Easy to Maintain – Dental implants should look and feel like your natural teeth. You can care for them just like all of your other teeth, too! To keep your implants and other teeth looking good, be sure to keep up on good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily.
- Durable – Your dental implants will handle the stresses placed upon them every day. Implants can even last a long time with proper care.
- Greater Comfort – Your implants should fit comfortably and allow you to eat and speak normally.
