dental implant

All you need to know about the long-term benefits of dental implants

Dental implants are a natural looking replacement for a missing tooth and provide many long-term benefits.

Key takeaways:

– Once the implant base is fixed in your jaw it should last for a very long time, providing stability and structure to the jaw.

– A dental implant prevents other teeth from moving saving money in future treatments.

– Speak to your dentist if you want to know more about getting an implant.

“Since dental implants aren’t able to get cavities, you’ll help reduce the chances that bacteria from tooth decay or gum disease will build up on your replaced teeth.”
