If you’re missing a tooth or severely damaged teeth, Webster Dental offers a permanent solution to your smile. Dental implants can replace your problematic tooth or several teeth. Titanium implants fitting securely and look like natural teeth. You don’t have to live with an embarrassing space between your teeth. There are dental procedures available to replace your missing tooth or teeth. Good news because a missing tooth doesn’t just leave a hole in your smile; it may also affect the way you speak and chew your food. And if your tooth isn’t replaced, the teeth around it begin to move. Shifting teeth create new gaps between your teeth that plaque and tartar can hide in – which can lead to tooth decay.
Dental implants are a modern option for replacing missing teeth. Instead of setting on your gums like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like with a dental bridge, your replacement teeth are surgically anchored into your jawbone. Your new implant looks and feels like a natural tooth and lets you chew and talk like you did when your original tooth was still with you. When properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular visits to your dentist are still recommended.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have come a long way, and our patients are thrilled with the results. Here are a few reasons to consider implants:
Permanent: Dental implants have a 98% success rate for tooth replacement. Titanium implants fuse to your jawbone and don’t shift around or fall out. If you maintain a healthy oral regimen, you can expect the implants to last the rest of your life.
Structured: If you have structural issues or missing teeth, you may have problems chewing, speaking, and sometimes facial appearance. Implants have the capability of restoring these structural insufficiencies and bringing your oral health back into good condition.
Maintenance: Implants are very sturdy, so you can eat all the foods you enjoy. Because of their low maintenance, there is nothing additional you have to do when you brush and floss your teeth. If you have healthy oral habits, you’ll find that implants will remain in good condition for years to come.
Aesthetic: Customized crowns are added to cover the implant and blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. You’ll be amazed by how your mouth looks healthier than before the implants.
