Thankful for the Option of Implants
November has arrived and planning for Thanksgiving is sure to have begun. Nothing is better than getting together with family and friends and feasting on delicious turkey, sides, and desserts. If you have a missing tooth, chronic dental issues, or dentures, you may be worried about what you may or may not be able to eat. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was an option where you would have no dental concerns and be able to enjoy all the foods during the holiday festivities? Implants are the answer that you have been looking for.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. Over time, the artificial tooth roots fuse with the jawbone to create a permanent and lasting solution. Dental implants fit and feel like regular teeth, so they are a perfect replacement option.
Advantages of Dental Implants
If you are suffering from missing teeth or having difficulties with dentures, then you are all too familiar with issues such as speech problems, the inability to eat all foods, and insecurities. There are many advantages to dental implants, which eliminate all of these difficulties.
- Mimic Real Teeth – Implants behave like natural teeth so they can be cleaned normally with brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Because they restore full chewing power, there is no longer a need to avoid certain foods or the worry that a tooth or hardware will break, as with dentures.
- Long Lasting – Implants can last a lifetime. If cared for properly with cleanings and semiannual dental appointments, there is no reason implants cannot last for the remainder of your life.
- Prevent Bone Loss – When a tooth is missing, it can cause the jawbone to begin to deteriorate over time. The installation of an implant creates the stimulation needed to keep the jawbone intact.
