Anyone missing a tooth or several teeth is a strong candidate for dental implants, which can offer a permanent solution to the problems of tooth decay and missing teeth — as well as provide structural support for the entire mouth. Most importantly — you will be able to chew your food normally, regain lost confidence and live a more healthy life.
Dental implants are generally preferred by dentists over dental bridges because they will last longer and give your teeth a more natural appearance. In addition, they also function in the same way as natural teeth. Dental implants are much more convenient and require far less maintenance than dentures, which must be removed for cleaning and maintenance. Dental bridges are not anchored to the gums, therefore they are not as sturdy as dental implants.
Relieve yourself of the burden of dentures and bridges. Dental implants provide you with the freedom you need to live your life without the hassles of not being able to eat what you want.
So, when is the best time to get a dental implant?
Usually you should consider replacing a tooth soon after it has been lost — this will prevent bone loss or the shifting of teeth or bite imbalance. The best part is that dental implants will last a lifetime and can be created to match your other teeth — therefore your smile looks and feels natural.
Dental implants will allow you to eat, smile and talk until your heart's content — while giving you a higher quality of life with your restored and healthy mouth.
So, don't wait any longer. If you have missing teeth and want to regain the quality of life you miss, talk to your dental implant dentist about dental implants.
Dental Implants will give you something to smile about!
