A missing or damaged tooth can be painful and cause some embarrassment. One solution is to have dental implants. This procedure has many benefits to those who are missing teeth or need to have a tooth removed.
Long Term Solution
Dental implants are a permanent solution. Unlike dentures, with proper care and treatment an implant will not need to be replaced. Additionally, implants do not require special care or maintenance. Simply treat it as you would your real teeth.
With implants, you can eat all your favorite foods without having to worry about any prosthetic teeth slipping or coming out of place.
Retain Face Shape
The loss of teeth can damage your jaw which results in sunken cheeks and thin lips. With dental implants, your jaw is preserved and your face can retain its natural shape.
Reduce Teeth Shifting
Dental implants fill empty gaps between teeth. This prevents your teeth from uncomfortably shifting into available space.
Dentures have a risk of slipping while you are talking. It can also be difficult to adjust to speaking with dentures in your mouth. Dental implants are easy to talk with and allow you to be confident in your speech.
If you have missing teeth, dental implants are a great long term solution. Contact The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center, P.A. to learn more about dental implants.
