You may already know that there are many things you might be able to try to keep your teeth strong and healthy. For example, you might know that you should brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day and that you should floss on a daily basis. Still, even if you keep your pearly whites clean, you could eventually lose a tooth. Luckily, if you lose a tooth, there are many different options you should consider, including getting a dental implant.
Please don’t misunderstand: we suggest setting up an appointment with us before deciding on the restoration that best meets your needs. Still, if you choose to have a dental implant, you should be able to speak and chew without any discomfort. Your smile will also look much better than it had because your missing tooth will be replaced. Moreover, your dental implant will also look and feel natural. Fortunately, implants are also quite durable and if you have an implant placed, it could last for more than 30 years. Implants may also stop your cheeks from sagging, which can help you avoid wrinkle lines altogether. Finally, please be aware that a tooth which has been replaced by an implant can be replaced fairly easily if it’s damaged.
