Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a very popular restorative and cosmetic dental option for various reasons:
- Many people will be unable to distinguish between your implant and your natural teeth due to their natural appearance.
- There is no slippage or sliding with dental implants because they are firmly attached.
- Long lifespan – They are built to survive for many years, even a lifetime in some instances if adequately cared for daily.
- Ease of daily activities – You can chew and speak normally again because they feel so much like your actual teeth.
- Dental implants keep your mouth healthy by preventing surrounding teeth from sliding out of alignment and into the open space left by missing teeth, as well as preventing bone loss in your jawbone.
Dental Implants FAQs
Should I Replace Missing Teeth?
Yes, a lost tooth can affect your smile, but there’s more to it than that. When a tooth is missing, it can cause the neighboring teeth to drift out of position, resulting in overcrowding. Many people are also unaware that teeth stimulate and maintain the jawbone’s health, so when they are absent, the bone might begin to deteriorate. Not replacing your teeth can also make your face appear sunken and make you appear much older than you are.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
To have a dental implant, you must have good overall oral health and sufficient bone density to sustain the implant. If you aren’t ready, we can help with bone graft surgery to boost your chances of receiving healthy dental implants. Coming in for a consultation is the only way to determine if you’re a good candidate for implants. The dentists at Cin Dental would be happy to discuss whether dental implants are a good fit for you.
How Do I Take Care of a Dental Implant?
One of the best things about dental implants is that they do not require you to alter your at-home oral healthcare routine or follow unusual instructions for their care. Brush, floss, and rinse them the same way you do the rest of your teeth. Remember to come in for your regular dental checkups every six months as well. These checkups ensure that your dental implants will last a long time.
How Much Do Implants Cost?
Many aspects affect cost. For example, the number of teeth you are missing, which teeth you want to replace, and the restoration style used.
