You may be trying to decide what restorative option is right for you to get that perfect smile. Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients that want a solution that lasts. If you have cracked, broken, or missing teeth and want a comfortable and reliable option, dental implants may be right for you.
Implants are made out of titanium and are anchored to the bone which makes them strong and sturdy. With implants there must be enough bone in the jaw present to provide the needed support to keep the implants stable. If needed, bone grafting can be done to add bone to the area.
Caring for your implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. We recommend good oral hygiene habits with brushing and flossing daily, as well as attending your regular visits to our office.
Implants are built to last upwards of 25 years or a lifetime if they are cared for properly.
Dental implants last because of the following:
- Implants are anchored to the bone, and they function like natural teeth making them extremely reliable.
- Implants are permanent and do not need to be removed for cleaning like with other restorative solutions such as dentures or bridges.
- Bone grafting can be done if needed to provide that additional support.
- Implants are easy to maintain and keep healthy making them last for years.
