There may come a time that despite your greatest efforts to take care of your teeth, you need dental implants. Dental implants are for those who may be missing one tooth or many teeth due to injury, disease, or tooth decay. After a thorough examination and x-rays, an implant dentist can determine if you need dental implants and the next step in the process. When you are looking for a dental implant dentist, look no further than Honest Family Dental.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that a dentist puts in your jawbone underneath your gums. Once those are inserted, a dental implant dentist can then mount replacement teeth. In order to be a candidate for dental implants you need to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant.
At Honest Family Dental, a 3D scan approach is used to ensure you are not only a good candidate for dental implants but that your new teeth are placed properly. Honest Family Dental is trained and experienced in this procedure and will explain it every step of the way.
Benefits of dental implants
Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth and regain your smile. They look and feel like natural teeth so no one would even know they are not your natural set. If you are in need of dental implants and a good candidate for them, you can reap many of the benefits. These include:
- Teeth that last a lifetime
- Easier eating
- No dental decay
In order for you to get these benefits you need to be extremely conscious of taking care of your gums and visiting your dentist regularly. If you have dental implants you still need to brush them, floss, and have regular check-ups as you would for your natural teeth.
