Have you ever considered dental implants?
Do you have gaps in your smile that hinder your self-confidence, or create challenging issues with eating and speaking from having an incomplete set of teeth? The loss of even a couple of teeth can cause other teeth to shift. This results in unevenly spaced teeth (a poor bite), and may cause headaches or grinding in your sleep that damages your teeth. Fortunately, there are many options including dental implants, implant dentures or implant bridges, that can restore your bite and appearance
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are positioned into the bone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. They also look and feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
How do Dental Implants Work?
They provide stable support for artificial teeth, and dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or move around in your mouth — an important benefit when eating and speaking.
Ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not an option for some people due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
Are you a good candidate for Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for implants is someone who:
Has healthy gums and oral tissue.
Follows a daily oral hygiene regimen of brushing, flossing and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash.
Have sufficient bone mass to support the placement of dental implants.
