You know that a missing tooth can be embarrassing, but do you know what you can do about the problem? When you consider your options, we recommend considering the benefits of dental implants. But do you know what happens when you get an implant? Will your implant blend well with your smile?
Dental implants are designed to feel and function like your natural teeth. In other words, after you’ve had an implant placed, you should be able to speak, chew, and eat comfortably once again. Furthermore, by replacing missing teeth, your enunciation could even improve.
Dental implants are placed in your jawbones. A crown is then placed on your implant. This crown is designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth. Fortunately, modern technologies such as X-rays, CT scans, and 3D imaging have made placing implants very save and accurate. Implants are also extremely useful because of their longevity. In fact, your implants can last up to twenty years or more, and the crown that tops your implants is easy to replace.
