Why Choose Dental Implants to Restore Your Smile?

Have you spoken to your dentist about implants? These are an excellent way to restore the natural appearance of your smile and they can be used to replace one or more teeth that you may have lost. 

A dental implant consists of a post embedded in your jaw, topped by a dental crown. The result is a very natural-looking tooth that functions just like a normal tooth. 

As this is an important decision, let’s quickly list three benefits which you can expect to enjoy:

  • Unlike some other treatments, implants are permanent restorative solutions.
  • The implant will look exactly the same as your natural teeth.
  • Implants may be able increase the bone density of your jaw (important as you age).

“In order to qualify for dental implants, patients need to have enough jawbone to support the restoration.”
