Dental Implants – Consider the Benefits

Are you self-conscious because you have missing teeth, or perhaps you wear dentures that are continually uncomfortable? Then you should talk to our experts at Scott J Owens DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry to see if dental implants are an option for you.

Dental implants are a very popular and effective way to replace your missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry today. These implants are made up of materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for the replacement teeth.

Helping Patients Maintain Their Teeth
The goal of dentistry is to help patients care for and maintain their teeth. Adults today have only a fraction of the restorations and missing teeth of previous generations. Most of us will have to deal with replacing some missing teeth at some point in our lifetime. Dental implants have become one of the most respected options to replace teeth today. They can help you get back that bright and beautiful smile.

Clean Them Like Natural Teeth
Dental implants simply provide the most natural and longer lasting solution in restorative dentistry for replacing missing, infected or loose teeth. Did you know that you can clean your implants the same way you used to clean your old teeth just by brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

They also stimulate your bone and gums. Unlike dentures and traditional crowns and bridges, a dental implant acts as a tooth root which stimulates your bone and gums, significantly reducing the risk of bone deterioration and gum disease. And more importantly, dental implants can firmly anchor a crown, bridge, or even a denture without having to use adhesives. This allows you to eat the foods you used to enjoy – and you won’t need to be concerned about whether or not your teeth are going to fall out when you talk.
