Dental implants for everyone!
A dental implant is definitely the best alternative for a missing tooth. Not only does it look like a natural tooth, it also fulfils the same functions. There are many benefits to choosing an implant in terms of strength, comfort, and the health of the teeth and jaw. Why choose an implant over a traditional prosthesis? Because a dental implant is the closest option to a natural tooth.
In short, a dental implant consists of a post made of a biocompatible material, which is inserted into the space left by the missing tooth. An artificial tooth, such as a crown, is then installed after a three- to six-month healing period.
Am I a good candidate for a dental implant?
If you are in good general health and have healthy gums and sufficient bone volume, you are a good candidate for an implant. Just contact us for an assessment.
Benefits of a dental implant
Dental implants offer many benefits, including restoring comfort, aesthetics, and the ability to bite into food. Because the jawbone is stimulated by the artificial root, it retains its strength, which prevents premature ageing of the face caused by bone loss. Finally, maintaining an implant is as simple as maintaining a natural tooth.
Why replace a missing tooth and choose a dental implant?
A missing tooth is not aesthetically pleasing. But more than that, there are other serious consequences if it is left unchecked. First, the adjacent teeth may move to try to fill the space. This can lead to chewing problems and premature wear of the teeth. In addition, the loss of one or more teeth can cause the resorption of the jawbone, thereby causing premature ageing of the face. Finally, the adjacent teeth gradually move into the open space and cause the teeth to become misaligned.
