Why are dental implants so popular?
Dental implants replace missing teeth, and they are the replacement option of choice for both patients and dentists!
Patients love dental implants because no other tooth replacement looks and feels more like a natural tooth. You don't have to change your diet or worry about special cleaning techniques. Once the implant is in place, it will last for a long time with proper oral hygiene care and regular check-ups. In many cases, a dental implant can last a lifetime!
Dental implants are also versatile. We can restore dental implants with crowns, bridges, and even dentures! Denture wearers appreciate the convenience of dentures that stay put.
Dentists love dental implants for all these reasons and more! Unlike other tooth replacement options, a dental implant actually helps maintain your long-term dental health. In addition to preventing other teeth from shifting into the space left by the missing tooth, a dental implant works below the gums to stimulate your bone to maintain its density and quality. Diminished bone leads to additional lost teeth, creating an unfortunate chain reaction that can have major consequences in the long run.
