If you are one of the millions of people who have at least one missing tooth, we at Arcadia Dental Arts know just how uncomfortable and irritating it can be. Not only is having a missing tooth a complete nuisance, but it can also cause damage to your jawbone and appearance. And although you can embrace the pirate life for as long as you please, we have a solution that can help you: dental implants.
Unlike dentures that are temporary and can be removed every day, dental implants replace the tooth from the root up. By surgically implanting a titanium post into the gums, a crown will then be placed on top to replicate your natural tooth. So, what are the unique benefits of dental implants? Let’s take a closer look.
- They Are Practically Permanent
As previously mentioned, one of the unique benefits of dental implants is that they are practically permanent. Unlike dentures or even dental bridges, dental implants act as your natural tooth and can’t be taken out or put back in— leaving you with more stability.
- They Are Durable
You want to be able to chew a piece of steak or bite into an apple without worrying about your teeth falling out. Because dental implants are surgically implanted into your gums, they are more durable than other alternatives and give you the ability to chew the same food as you could with your natural teeth.
- They Look Real
Yes, you can opt for gold teeth or even a grill to look like your favorite hip-hop artist, or you can go the natural route and get dental implants. By matching the dental crown to the rest of your teeth, your dental implant should look natural and not standout.
