Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Dental implants are a natural low maintenance replacement for your teeth. The surgery is minor and will have your smile looking great! Although keep in mind that there are conditions that may affect your eligibility for implants.
Dental implants may not be right for you if you have…
- Gum disease
- A lower bone density in your jaw bone
- Have gone through or are going through chemotherapy or radiation treatments
- A history of smoking
- Or any other health conditions that might interfere with the surgery
If you do experience any of these or other health issues, dentures or bridges may be a safer alternative for you. It is important to consult with your dentist before making your decision.
Dental Implants Work Like A Natural Tooth
Dental implants look and function just as a natural tooth would. Dentures can hinder you from eating the foods you love. Fan favorites such as popcorn, steak, certain candies , and even nuts can cause issues with dentures. With implants you can eat all of the foods you enjoyed before the surgery. You can clean your dental implants just like you would clean your natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. You won’t have to go through the procedure of having to clean your dentures.
The Convenience of Dental Implants
Implants are the most low maintenance option for your tooth replacement. Dental implants don’t require extra cleaning procedures and care, aside from regular brushing and flossing like dentures and bridges do. Dentures can slip or shift while speaking and cause you to stumble your words. Dental implants allow you to speak, eat, and live your life just as you have always done before the surgery.
