Why a Dental Implant is the Best Way to Replace Lost Teeth Today

If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental implant is considered modern dentistry’s top tooth replacement option today. Discover how this treatment can help you restore your smile to its full glory.

A Look at Dental Implants

Today, a dental implant provides a long-lasting tooth loss solution. A dental implant is simply a tiny post embedded in the jaw that attaches onto a dental crown. The crown fills in the gap left by a lost tooth to restore the appearance, health, and full use of your teeth. Both patients and dentists often recommend dental implants because they look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. And while the cost of dental implants may be more than other options, their many benefits make them well worth the extra dental implant costs.

The Easy and Painless Procedure

While living with missing teeth can be distressing and difficult, dental implant surgery is a completely comfortable procedure. It is minimally invasive and leaves little to no post-procedure discomfort. For most people, the placement process is very simple. In more complex cases, the procedure can span over several months. But people with basic cases can actually get same day dental implants. Thanks to advances in dentistry, same day dental implants are becoming more common for more cases.

To find out if a dental implant is right for you, you’ll need a dental evaluation. If you have a sufficient amount of jawbone, you can have the procedure at any time. If not, you will strengthen the bone with bone grafts, which can increase the cost of dental implants. While dental implant costs may be slightly higher than other options, they don’t require the regular replacement or cause the later dental health problems that those other options do. Once the dental implant is inserted into the jawbone, it will fuse to the bone over the next few months, which will ensure that the implant is stable and secure. Once it’s fully healed, you will regain a full smile that looks, acts, and feels just like your natural teeth.

Taking Care of Dental Implants

Protecting and preserving dental implants is no different than caring for natural teeth. Simply follow these basic oral health guidelines:

  • Brush your teeth on a daily basis
  • Floss daily
  • Seek treatment for any tooth grinding or clenching habit you may have
  • Get regular professional check-ups and cleanings
