Why Should I Consider Dental Implants?
You don’t have to remove them
Just like your own natural teeth, dental implants stay in your mouth permanently. You don’t have to take them out and clean them and food will not get stuck around them. They are a part of your mouth and your teeth just like your natural teeth. They are the most lifelike replacement for missing teeth.
They preserve the bone around your teeth
Your jaw bone deteriorates when there is no longer a tooth in the area. This causes your face to “cave in,” giving you an aged appearance. Having good bone support in your jaws keeps your facial features in tact. It also prevents your jaw from weakening which can lead to further tooth loss. Once there is bone loss, it only continues to get worse.
You don’t have to damage other teeth
Traditionally, it was popular to put a “bridge” in to replace the missing tooth. This meant that the missing tooth area required the surrounding teeth for support. This meant that the teeth around the missing tooth would be filed down to hold a crown and support the false tooth. With implants, you don’t have to worry about damaging the neighbouring teeth.
