Dental Implants Worcester MA
Replacing missing teeth is essential for your oral health. There are several options, including dental implants. Implants provide many benefits for singular or multiple teeth replacement. In fact, many patients prefer dental implants for their durability and natural-looking results. Dental implants resemble natural teeth in appearance and function. Discover why dentists and patients are choosing dental implants below.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium tooth roots that are inserted into the jawbone. Essentially, they replace missing teeth while preserving the jawbone. Missing teeth are known to cause a variety of issues including jawbone deterioration. Fortunately, patients benefit from replacing their teeth and protecting their jawbone structure with dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Choosing the right teeth replacement is important for every patient. Dental implants offer many benefits including the following.
Durability and Easy Maintenance
Implants are known to last for several years with good dental hygiene. We recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily. Additionally, maintain your dental exams and cleanings for more preventive care maintenance. Unlike other teeth replacement options, dental implants are fixed. There is no removal required, which makes implants convenient.
Dental implants appear and function like natural teeth. After the implant area has healed, the dentist uses an abutment to connect a custom-made dental crown. Your crown will be tooth-colored to match your natural teeth. In addition, the size and shape will fit perfectly with your smile.
Is the Dental Implant Procedure Safe?
The procedure is safe. In fact, dental implants have been performed on patients for more than 30 years. Additionally, we require an exam and consultation to assure the procedure is best for your unique situation. This initial visit includes a thorough medical history as not everyone will be recommended for dental implants. For example, patients with diabetes often choose dental bridges or dentures due to their medical situation and possible risks.
