Dental implants have become the golden standard for replacing missing teeth. Their structure is quite similar to that of a natural tooth, because like the roots of teeth, implants are embedded into the jawbone. A simple surgical procedure is done to place the implant in the bone, thus making it a permanent fixture. If cared for properly, implants can last a lifetime. Caring for an implant is easy, simply brush and floss like you would for your natural teeth and be sure to go for regular dental cleanings.
Benefits of Implants:
Implants have a very natural, aesthetic appearance since they emerge from the bone. Not only are they highly aesthetic, they are also strong and stable and can be used to support bridges and dentures. Losing a tooth can impact one’s self-confidence, making them feel ashamed to smile. They may also experience difficulty eating. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, be sure to book an appointment with our periodontist to see if implants are for you.
