Dental implants can completely replace missing teeth to keep your smile beautiful and your mouth healthy! Keep reading about the benefits of this method of tooth replacement, and call us if you have missing teeth.

Implants are strong

Dental implants are made from a screw-like titanium post that is implanted in your jaw bone with minor surgery. You then heal for a period of weeks while a process called osseointegration takes place. Your jaw bone heals around and fuses to the implant, giving it strength. A ceramic crown sits on top of the implant to replace the tooth. Together they are a strong and beautiful tooth replacement.

Implants keep your mouth healthy

When you have a missing tooth it doesn't just leave an unsightly gap in your smile, it can cause problems with chewing and speaking. If you don't replace missing teeth, over time other teeth in the area will shift. This can change your bite and damage your other teeth, and you'll need more dental work. Invest in dental implants now for a long-lasting solution that keeps your whole mouth healthy.

Implants match your smile beautifully

During the initial healing period, you may wear a temporary tooth cap. This may not match your smile perfectly but is only temporary while you heal. Once the implant has healed, your permanent crown is placed at a final appointment. This has been custom-made to match your smile and looks beautiful.

Easy to care for

When you have dental implants you should maintain a great oral hygiene routine at home and schedule regular dental visits, but there is no special care required to keep implants looking great. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Schedule professional teeth cleaning appointments twice a year so you have regular exams, too. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist will recommend wearing a nightguard to protect the crown from damage.
