Why do I need a dental implant?
Dental implants replace a missing tooth and can benefit almost anyone with a gap in their smile. Furthermore, implants do more than just improve the aesthetic side of your smile—they also help eliminate side effects caused by the gaps, such as drifting teeth. In fact, dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevents bone atrophy, a condition that causes the bone under the gap to degrade.
Is it safe to get a dental implant?
Dental implants have been in use for decades. Modern implants use implant-grade titanium for the implant fixture (i.e. the piece that is placed directly into your jawbone), a step that has proven to be very successful in taking the place of missing tooth roots. Additionally, implants have a low rejection rate and are made to last a lifetime with proper care. Following the American Dental Association’s guidelines of brushing twice daily and flossing once daily coupled with regular dental examinations and cleanings is often enough to keep both your natural teeth and your dental implants healthy for years to come.
