A New Year is a Perfect Time for a New Smile!
Have you been considering making some permanent improvements to your teeth but keep coming up with excuses to delay your perfect smile? The time to delay is over, as the start of a new year is the perfect opportunity for a fresh and beautiful smile. It is time to say goodbye to insecurities and recurring dental problems and say hello to a permanent dental solution with dental implants.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a wonderful tooth replacement option that have been successfully used for over 30 years. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. Over time, the artificial tooth roots fuse with the jawbone to create a permanent and lasting solution. Dental implants are the best alternative to regular teeth, as the look and functionality of the implant mimics that of a natural tooth.
Are Implants Right for Me?
If you are missing teeth or are suffering from the effects of severely damaged teeth, dental implants may be a solution to consider. There are many other factors to determine if implants may be right for you:
- Bone health is one of the most important factors to determine if a dental implant will be a successful solution for teeth replacement. The jaw must be fully formed and matured. Therefore, candidates must be over the age of 18.
- Harmful habits, such as using tobacco products, are frowned upon when getting implants. Along with the added risk of gum disease, smoking can prevent proper healing and can lead to the bone not fusing with the implant. Along with the many health benefits, if implants are a consideration, it is highly recommended to quit smoking or using any form of tobacco before starting treatment.
- Gum health plays a large role in the success of dental implants. It is not beneficial to see any form of inflammation or indication of receding gums. Using dental floss daily is a great habit to help ensure healthy gums.
