This Christmas, give yourself the ultimate gift – a new smile! Dental implants have proven to be an effective way to enhance a smile, replace missing teeth, and help with everyday activities such as eating and speaking. Discover several facts about dental implants you probably didn’t know:
Dental Implants Prevent Jawbone Loss
If you are missing a tooth, you may be tempted to leave the space, especially if the tooth was in the back of your mouth. However, your teeth do more than just give you a pretty smile. The roots of your teeth help prevent gum loss and bone loss. When your dental implants procedure is complete, your jawbone will grow around the implanted screw, keeping your jawbone and gums at full volume.
Dental Implants Do Not Disturb Surrounding Teeth
Other tooth replacement options demand the grinding the sides of the surrounding teeth to place a tooth-supported bridge. This negatively affects perfectly healthy teeth! By choosing dental implants, your surrounding teeth are left alone. Your Warner Robins dentist will keep the surrounding teeth intact and place the dental implant in the exact space where it is needed.
Dental Implants Can Outlast Dentures
Dental implants are incredibly strong, easily outlasting the life of dentures and other teeth replacement options. They are made from titanium – material that cannot be subject to cavities. We encourage you to treat your dental implants the same way you would normal teeth – floss, brush, and use mouthwash as normal.
Dental Implant Procedures Has a High Success Rate
Titanium-made dental implants have evolved exponentially since they were first placed in a volunteer in 1965. Since then, adjustments have been made and the success rate of dental implants have skyrocketed. The procedure is relatively painless, and downtime is non-existent.
