Whether you are missing one tooth or many, dental implants are a durable, maintainable, and natural-looking solution to help you improve your smile.
Have you been wondering what your options are for missing teeth? Your dental professional at Dr. Shauna Pier’s Dental Clinic may recommend dental implants as a functional and cosmetic solution. Here are five reasons why dental implants could be right for you:
Dental implants are as strong as, if not stronger than, your natural teeth. Implants are secured into your jaw with a titanium post so there is no chance of your implant will fall out. For this reason, dental implants are the recommended tooth replacement option for people who are heavily active and play contact sports.
Unlike bridges, which are supported by the surrounding teeth, dental implants are a completely independent solution. This means that there is no need to shave down the teeth on either side of the gap so that crowns can be installed to hold the bridge in place.
3. Natural Design
Dental implants are designed to look and feel exactly like your other teeth. The crown, or false tooth, can be designed in a variety of colors and materials, meaning that no one will ever know you ever had a tooth missing.
4. Easy to care for
Dental implants are exceptionally easy to look after. In fact, you don’t need to care for them any differently than your natural teeth. Simply brush well twice a day, and floss once, and your implant will stay in ideal condition.
