More than half of adults who reach their forties will have lost at least one tooth because of an accident or some type of oral disease. If you’re missing any teeth, dental implants will fill in the gaps and make your smile look wonderful again. Dental implants are simply artificial teeth that we can surgically insert into your mouth. They will match your other teeth and become a fixed part of your jaw. You will look better and eat better, and with proper care, your implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implants can be seen as an alternative to bridges and dentures, which have improved over the years but still have their downsides. Dentures require an application of messy adhesive to hold in place. Nevertheless, they can still slip around, or even fall out, when you’re eating or talking. They also require a fair bit of cleaning and care. On the other hand, once dental implants are in, they are in for good, and caring for them is very similar to caring for your natural teeth.
Just about anyone with healthy gums and adequate bone structure in their mouth is a good candidate for dental implants.
