Reasons for Dental Implants
Dental implants can restore your smile as well as chewing capabilities. Dental implants provide a way to replace teeth missing due to decay, trauma, periodontal disease, or Genetically missing teeth. A dental implant is placed into the jawbone to provide the root of the tooth. After healing, your dentist will place a tooth on the implant to match your teeth in the surrounding area.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants stand alone. Unlike a bridge, implants do not require any other tooth for support. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth. They are brushed and flossed and cared for in the same manner. They can attach to a denture to support the bone and provide stability to the denture. Two or more implants can also be used to support multiple teeth in an area similar to a bridge.
