Today, more and more people are discovering how dental implants can improve their appearance, comfort, and confidence. See if these dental wonders will work wonders for you.

Face the Facts on Dental Implants
Also known as tooth implants, these dental aids are metal posts or frames that secure artificial replacement teeth. They are surgically embedded by implant dentists to make a smile more functional and attractive.

Sink Your Teeth into Support

Tooth implants are attached to the jawbone to support replacement teeth, such as dentures, bridges, and crowns. These implants prevent the replacement teeth from slipping and sliding in your mouth. They also ensure a more natural fit and feel than ordinary bridges and dentures, which many find either uncomfortable or impossible because of tooth structure and personal response. Another advantage of dental implants is that they don’t require damaging adjacent teeth in order to hold replacement teeth in place.

Choosing to Use Tooth Implants

While tooth implants are very popular, they aren’t right for everyone. According to implant dentists, they should only be used if you have healthy gums and enough bone to hold them. They also demand strict dental hygiene habits and regular dental visits. While implants generally cost more than other tooth replacement options, it is possible to get affordable dental implants. Today, many implant dentists offer financing and accept insurance to make affordable dental implants a reality for you.
