Have you thought about getting dental implants? What does that mean? Are they the right option for you? Is it even worth it?
Dental implants are an excellent option for adults of any age. No matter if the tooth was lost due to injury, decay, or wasn’t there from birth; a dental implant can be a great option to adjust your smile and help you feel more comfortable showing off those pearly whites!
A dental implant is a titanium metal replacement for the root of a tooth that is surgically implanted in the jawbone. Dental implants are built to last and have so many benefits!
They help your overall self-image, both physically and psychologically. With implants, you can feel more comfortable and confident in yourself. They feel, look, and work just like your natural teeth. They don’t move around or shift. Your speech won’t be affected, and your diet and lifestyle changes are minimal to none!
A dental implant isn’t meant to change anything but your smile and confidence!
Dental implants are also much easier to care for than other tooth-replacement options. You care for them just like your regular teeth! Brushing, flossing, and other oral habits stay the same and allow for easy adjustment and care. Unlike other dental replacement options, dental implants will last for decades and are permanent options that you could essentially forget about! Dentures and dental bridges require specific cleaning, aren’t as durable, and could even get lost!
Beyond just a cosmetic change, dental implants also can benefit your jawbone and overall oral health. When you have a missing tooth, or two, or three; your jawbone can start to deteriorate, and bone loss can happen in the now open space. An implant comes in and takes up that space and helps promote bone growth and stops that deterioration.
Here at The Center of Dental Professionals, we see the dental implant journey as a three-step process. 1. Consult 2. Implant Placement 3. Restore. We work one-on-one with you to create a treatment plan and decide what course of action is best for your situation.
There are many different dental implant options, and each has its benefits. When you come in for your consultation and evaluation, our dentist will sit down with you and help you decide which option is best for you!
If you still have questions and are wanting more information about dental implants, Dr. Benson, will be hosting an informational seminar September 10th from 6-7.
