Do you have missing teeth and want to fill in your smile? Although there are many different forms of tooth replacements, one of the most successful varieties is a dental implant. Implants can last a lifetime if you take care of them.

Dental implants get installed directly into your jawbone. Therefore, all patients requesting this procedure are required to have an adequate jaw strength. Speak with your dentist to determine if your jaw is capable of sustaining dental implants.

The bond between installed implants and your bone will grow stronger over time, due to a process called osseointegration. This means “bone connection,” and refers to the functional connection between living bone and a load-bearing implant (such as a dental implant).

If your jaw has multiple missing teeth, it will weaken over time. Implants can help restore the jaw to its original strength and keep it working properly. This is a major benefit of dental implants.

Dental implants can be designed to look and act just like your natural teeth. This will make your smile look and function better for tasks such as eating, chewing, and speaking. Talk with your dentist to discuss your options and the benefits of dental implants.

If you take care of dental implants correctly, they can last an entire lifetime.
