Learning About Dental Implants

There are many reasons a person might find themselves with a missing tooth. Anything from a bad fall to a car accident can result in losing a tooth. That is why here at Smiles Dental, we offer dental implants to restore your smile no matter why you find yourself without a tooth.

The process of installing the dental implant begins with your dentist surgically placing an implant post into your jawbone. Once your jawbone has healed around the implant, your dentist will then place your replacement tooth over the post. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. This is a serious treatment, but it can have a positive impact on your life.

The three benefits of dental implants include:

1. Durability- Implants are made to provide a long-term solution to your missing teeth.
2. Healthy bones- Having space in your jaw after losing one or more teeth can cause deterioration in your jawbone. This can have a rippling effect in your mouth with your remaining teeth. Having deterioration in your jawbone will cause your bones to become unhealthy. Dental implants will secure your jawbone and keep it healthy and strong.
3. Strong teeth- Unlike dentures, dental implants will stay in place when you eat, speak, and smile.

Dental implants can improve your quailty of life. If you have any questions about dental implants, and if they are right for you, please call us today and set up an appointment. Let us restore your smile today!
