Dental implants are one of the greatest advancements in modern dentistry. Dental implants are artificial roots that can be put in place in areas where you may have lost a tooth or teeth in order to hold dental prosthetics such as dental bridges and dentures securely in place. This can help improve your ability to speak and chew, and has the added bonus of a more natural look and feel. Read on for more information about dental implants and their benefits.
There are several different types of dental implants available today:
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they can minimize the occurrence of bone loss and receding gums that can occur with dentures and bridgework. Additionally, unlike traditional bridgework, dental implants don’t require the removal of a large portion of the surrounding teeth when they are put into place. Dental implants also tend to have a more natural appearance, which can help to give you a more confident, open smile.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or several teeth. They can also eliminate the need for temporary dentures, and can be used to help provide support for dentures. It’s important to remember, however, that dental implants require the same oral hygiene care as regular teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups will be necessary to ensure that your dental implants stay healthy. If you have a condition that would prevent this, you may not be a candidate for dental implants.
