Implants provide you with many benefits, such as replacing one or more missing teeth with affecting adjacent teeth, restoring natural bite strength and function, and filling gaps in your smile to restore your confidence.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as you can. Missing teeth can impact your oral health as well as your overall physical well-being, causing problems biting, chewing, and eating properly. You also have a greater chance of developing gum disease, TMJ, crooked teeth, and other issues if you go without replacing your missing teeth.
You will require a minor surgical procedure to place the implants in your jaw. Following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain and swelling while your mouth heals. You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.
Dental implants are strong, durable, and will last many years. You can extend the lifespan of your implant up to 20 years or more through good at-home care and regular dental checkups. On occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear and tear over time.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution for dental crowns, bridges, and full or partial implant dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances and can restore your smile to the fullest.
