Oral Health Treatments: Dental Implants

Posted .

Are you missing any teeth? Have you recently undergone a tooth extraction or have you suffered an oral accident or facial trauma that has left you with a gap in your smile? If so, consider the benefits that a tooth replacement treatment such as dental implants can provide.

Dental implants are highly effective tooth replacement treatments that do not run the risk of falling out. Unlike dentures which use bonding cement, dental implants are directly attached to your jawbone for a permanent hold that can last a lifetime. Furthermore, the bond between jawbone and implant will strengthen over time, meaning it will hold tighter than when the treatment is originally done. This process is known as Osseointegration.

Dental implants come with zero food restrictions. This means you can enjoy all meals in your life that you love, including tough steaks. Furthermore, dental implants can reverse ailments in your facial structure that arise due to missing teeth, including sunken in facial abnormalities and gum de-stabilization. With dental implants, you can prevent any teeth from sliding or moving around in the empty space that was once there.
