Why You Should Choose Implants
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you have several options. Many turns to dentures because they are easy and affordable and provide a brand-new smile in just a day. While dentures have helped millions of people, dental implants offer unique benefits that don’t come from any other treatment.
If you are looking for a long-term solution, implants are ideal. They are more expensive at treatment time, but they can last a lifetime if you care for them properly. This means that you spend less money on future treatment and repairs, which ultimately makes them less expensive than alternative treatments.
Dental implants are easy to care for. If you are seeing a dentist regularly for cleanings and exams, then all you need to do is care for your implants as you care for your natural teeth. Brush at least twice a day and floss once a day to ensure that your mouth and gums stay healthy.
Implants also reduce bone loss that is common in those with missing teeth. Because the implants stimulate the jawbone to regrow, the loss is minimal, and the shape of the face remains the same.
