How Do I Know if Dental Implants are Right for Me?

No matter how or why it happened, there is no reason to go through life with missing teeth. Missing teeth are not only an embarrassing issue for people,

but they are also a sign of poor oral health. The easiest way to correct this is with a dental implant.

There are many different ways to create a healthy smile, so why should people choose to go with dental implants over dentures or bridges? For one thing, dental implants are right for almost anyone with a healthy mouth and a fully grown jaw. Dental implants can help those who have one or more teeth missing, a bridge

in need of replacement or dentures. Dental implants provide a full, long-term solution for those with missing teeth, as opposed to bridges and dentures, which are regarded as temporary solutions.

The most important thing a candidate for dental implants needs is a healthy jaw with enough bone density to handle an implanted tooth.

It also helps to be a non-smoker and not have any kind of gum disease or other oral health issues. Dental implants will still be possible, but treatments for gum disease or jaw issues will need to be handled before an implant is possible.

Since most people don’t have to worry about gum disease or smoke affecting their strength of their jaw bones, the question for most people becomes cost and the long-term health benefits of dental implants. Sure, dental implants are fairly expensive, but they can correct your missing teeth for a lifetime. These are

permanent fixes, not temporary solutions. Going with dentures or bridges may be cheaper, but they will have to be repaired or replaced at some point.

Those costs will begin to add up and outweigh those of dental implants.

There are also several negatives effects of never replacing missing teeth with an implant. This might lead to jaw erosion as the jaw bones under your teeth

will begin to weaken and deteriorate since they aren’t supporting teeth. It’s also much more difficult to chew food with missing teeth.

Those looking for a permanent solution to their missing teeth can contact the expert periodontal team at David Dental Service. We can run a full examination of your mouth to determine whether or not teeth implants would be right for you. If so, our team can be trusted for full dental implant services. We will insert an implant (usually a screw) into the jaw to serve as the root for a replacement tooth. The tooth will be inserted when the area around the implant is fully healed. In just a few months, a missing tooth can be replaced with a great-looking dental implant that will hold up for a lifetime!
