Your Teeth and Dental Implants

Posted .

You know that a missing tooth can be embarrassing, but do you know what you can do about the problem? When you consider your options, we recommend considering the benefits of dental implants. But do you know what happens when you get an implant? Will your implant blend well with your smile?

Dental implants are designed to feel and function like your natural teeth. In other words, after you’ve had an implant placed, you should be able to speak, chew, and eat comfortably once again. Furthermore, by replacing missing teeth, your enunciation could even improve.

Would you be surprised to learn that an implant can actually help you protect the health of your jawbone? You see, if roots of teeth are missing from your jaw, it could actually deteriorate. Furthermore, implants are extremely useful because of their longevity. In fact, your implants can last twenty years or more–and the crown that tops your implants are easy to replace. Finally, did you know that implants are designed to match the appearance of your teeth?
