Dental implants have come a long way with the advancement of technology, and more and more people are looking at dental implants as a way to improve their smiles, their health, and their lives. Dental implants are a permanent fixture in your mouth, and they look and function just as well, often better, than your real teeth.
People lose teeth for many reasons. Age is a factor, as is diet and whether or not you smoke. Regular trips to your dentist are important throughout your whole life since brushing and flossing aren’t necessarily enough to keep tooth decay and other issues from occurring. Many people fear the dentist, and don’t receive regular oral care.
There are many factors that contribute to the loss of teeth, but it’s never too late to start paying more attention to the health of your gums and teeth, and get your mouth to its optimum level of health and functionality.
If You Have Lost a Tooth
If you have lost a tooth, or teeth, don’t despair! Dental implants are an option now, more so than you may think. They’ve become more affordable, and can even be done in stages to fit your financial needs. It’s actually a rather simple procedure, when handled by the proper professionals, and people often return to their normal routines the following day, if not sooner. They are a wonderful and permanent solution to a problem that many people see as hopeless.
An important thing to remember is, the sooner you get the implant the better. As time goes on after losing a tooth, the bone tissue where the tooth once sat starts to deteriorate. This makes it harder to place the implant. So don’t wait too long to begin the process of getting a dental implant; it will be an easier and quicker process if you get the implant in a timely manner.
Having a Dental Implant
People are usually thrilled with the results of their dental implants, and often wonder why they waited for so long to get them. They look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. Unlike dentures, you never have to take them out, and in fact, they likely won’t ever need to be replaced. This makes them a wonderful, elegant, lifelong investment.
Imagine never having to avoid certain foods again, or smiling for the camera. Your confidence will soar, not having to feel ashamed of your appearance, or hesitant to bite into an apple or a handful of nuts. You may notice improvements in your speech, and your overall appearance.
