Thanks to modern advances in dental technology, dental implants have never been more popular. Dental implants offer a stable and permanent solution to restore you smile, helping you eat, talk, and live normally.
Dental implants begin with having an implant post surgically into your jawbone. Once your jawbone has healed around the implant, your dentist will then place your replacement tooth over the post. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. This is a serious treatment, but it can have a positive impact on your life.
There are many benefits to dental implants. Three benefits of dental implants include:
1. Durability: Implants are made to provide a long-term solution to your missing teeth.
2. Healthy bones: Having space in your jaw after losing one or more teeth can cause deterioration in your jawbone. This can have a rippling effect in your mouth with your remaining teeth. Having deterioration in your jawbone will cause your bones to become unhealthy. Dental implants will secure your jawbone and keep it healthy and strong.
3. Strong teeth: Unlike dentures, dental implants will stay in place when you eat, speak, and smile.
