Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants
If you or a loved one is in need of a tooth replacement, it can be overwhelming to choose an option that will fit your budget and your lifestyle as well. At Emerald Dental, we want to help our patients choose the option that is best for their needs. While we offer a number of tooth replacement options, one in particular is popular among many patients. Dental implants not only mimic the appearance of your natural teeth, but they are also durable and offer a number of other benefits to patients.
What are Dental Implants?
If you are unfamiliar, dental implants are used to replace an entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. The process for dental implants involves placing a post that acts as an artificial tooth root into the jawbone below the gumline. Once healed, a replacement tooth is fixed onto the post, completing the treatment. The replacement tooth can be permanent or removable. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be used in conjunction with a permanent bridge or a full arch of dentures.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When patients are looking for a permanent solution to their oral health problems, dental implants are a wonderful option. If cared for properly, dental implants can last for many years, if not the rest of your life. The only care required for dental implants is regular brushing and flossing, as with your natural teeth. We also recommend that you continue to visit our office for regular oral hygiene examinations as recommended. One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they restore the function of your teeth, allowing patients to eat the foods they love without any restrictions or discomfort.
