Facts About Dental Implants

Dental Implant Surgery Is Not Complicated

The word “surgery” can be a scary one. But patients should know that dental implant surgery is predictable. As long as you have enough jawbone to support dental implants and otherwise enjoy good health, your surgery will more than likely be successful.

Dental Implants Are Strong

Dental implants provide the best result for tooth replacement with restorations that are quite nearly as strong as your natural teeth. You can eat whatever you want when your dental implants have fully healed.

Dental Implants Are Not Subject to Decay

The biggest problem with our natural teeth is that they are prone to cavities. You will not have that problem with dental implants. As long as you brush and floss, keeping your gums healthy, your implants should stay strong and healthy.

Dental Implants Save Your Jawbone from Receding

People who lose their teeth and replace them with dentures tend to develop a sunken-in look because of changes in the jawbone. Without tooth roots to stimulate the bone, your body no longer sends nutrients to the area. Dental implants prevent this from happening.
