If you’re looking to restore the gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth, dental implants are the best way to go. They’re the healthiest, most attractive, and most convenient solution.
The porcelain crown of a dental implant reacts to light the same way your natural teeth do. And they’re custom-crafted to match your smile, so you’re the only one who has to know it’s not one of your natural teeth.
No other smile restoration protects your health the way dental implants do. Missing teeth leave gaps that cause your remaining teeth to shift around, and this will irritate your gums, often leading to infection. But dental implants preserve your dental health by filling these gaps.
As soon as you lose a tooth, the bone around the empty socket begins to diminish. That’s because bones require stimulation to remain strong. Dental implants are the only restoration that prevents your jawbone from diminishing because they provide regular stimulation.
Dental implants are also the most convenient restoration. You care for them as you do with your natural teeth — with daily brushing and flossing. But there’s one major difference. You’ll want to select gentle hygiene products for use with your dental implants to protect the implants and the soft tissue around them.
Products containing abrasive materials can scratch both your implant and the titanium fixture that secures it. They can also irritate the soft tissue that supports the implant fixture.
