If you are missing a tooth, you probably know you should have it replaced. However, would you be surprised to learn that you could actually have to deal with a number of serious problems if you don’t have your tooth replaced? To have this issue resolved, we recommend getting a restoration as soon as possible. When you consider your options, please remember to consider the benefits of a dental implant.
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.
If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of dental implants, please don’t hesitate to contact The Art of Dentistry at 810.653.3503. Our dentist, Dr. Ronald A. Williams, will be happy to address any questions you have. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
