For those looking to replace missing teeth, dental implants are often regarded as the most effective solution. Dental implants have become more and more popular as the technology has advanced and patients see how implants look and feel just like natural teeth.
Many patients who have given up hope of having a beautiful, healthy smile again due to missing, cracked, or broken teeth have been amazed by the results of their dental implants. They are truly like having a second chance at your own teeth!
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a post that is placed in your jaw and which mimics your tooth’s root. A replacement tooth or bridge is then attached to the implant. If you have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or some other reason, dental implants may be an option for you to restore your smile without the need for removable dentures or other uncomfortable replacements.
The ideal candidate for dental implants is someone that has:
- Good oral and overall health
- Healthy gums and no periodontal disease
- Sufficient bone in your jaw to support the implant
Even if you are in need of restorative dental treatments in order to be a candidate for implants, our dental team will work with you to improve your oral health so that you can receive them.
Once your implants have been placed, it is important to brush and floss daily to keep them free of plaque. Our office will continue to monitor your implants, teeth, and gums to ensure that they remain healthy in the long-term.
