One of the most common tooth replacement options is a dental implant. It is also one of the most functional, effective, and long-lasting dental solutions available. If you are wondering whether you are an ideal candidate for a dental implant and if you can benefit from having one placed, please visit our office at Madison Family Dental Associates to learn more.
One advantage of dental implants is their straightforward placement. While the procedure might initially seem like an invasive one, it is not quite as involved as many people think. Implants generally fit into space left behind after a tooth extraction and generally require only a short amount of downtime before patients are able to return to their everyday activities.
When looking for the ideal dental solution, many people understandably find cost to be a major deciding factor. Dental implants are a worthwhile investment that will last for a long time – usually over several decades. Because they fuse with the jawbone, implants are designed to be permanent replacements for the teeth in question and, with proper care and maintenance from a dental professional, will function as a natural tooth for many years.
Another important factor is comfort. Many patients are concerned they won’t be able to tolerate an implant and believe it will always feel like a foreign object. This could not be further from the truth. When placed correctly, you will begin using the implant just like you do your natural teeth without thinking twice.
Replicates Natural Teeth
A high quality dental implant not only looks real but also replicates your natural teeth like no other dental solution available. You do not have to worry about taking implants out and cleaning them like you do with bridges - instead, you follow the same cleaning and dental hygiene routine you have for your existing teeth. This makes them quite easy to preserve. You can brush your implants, floss around them, and maintain them just like your natural teeth.
Another important benefit is that there are no restrictions when it comes to what you can and cannot eat with dental implants. Since they become a permanent fixture and function like a natural tooth, you do not ever need to worry about it coming out while you are eating something. This is a major benefit not only because you will not have to change your food preferences and daily routine, but also because of the security dental implants give many people the confidence to live their lives without the fear of dental issues. Whether you want to replace your front tooth or need a dental device for your molars, a dental implant is one of the most popular choices.
In addition to being fully functional and long-lasting, dental implants can be matched with your natural tooth color to offer a natural and seamless integration. Our professionals also ensure that the tooth is designed and crafted not only with the same shade in mind but also with a shape that matches your natural teeth.
