Dental implants from Cary Family Dental can permanently restore a missing tooth, with a replacement that looks and functions like a natural tooth.
In the past, if someone had a missing or severely damaged tooth, the best options were dental bridges or dentures. These days, dental implants have proven to be superior.
A dental implant provides many critical advantages over a dental bridge or dentures:
Longevity – Dental implants are tough and permanent, meaning with proper care they can last ten years or more.
Seamless – Fabricated to have the same shape, size and color of the original tooth, the implant will blend seamlessly with all the other teeth. If the original tooth had aesthetic issues, these can typically be fixed with the implant crown.
Function – A dental implant functions like a natural tooth allowing for normal eating and speaking.
Convenience – Unlike dentures, no adhesives, rinsing, or removal is necessary.
Independent – Like the missing tooth, the dental implant is treated individually. No damaging of adjacent teeth is required, as with dental bridges. This independence allows nearby teeth to remain intact. Cleaning is easier than with most dental bridges which can require the threading of floss under and around the artificial tooth.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the patient’s jaw. A single implant can support one artificial tooth, while multiple implants can support a set of dentures. It’s no wonder that implants have been hailed as one of the greatest advances in dentistry.
