Christmas dinner just isn’t the same if you can’t enjoy sinking your teeth into a delicious meal, especially if you don’t have the teeth needed to do the sinking. If you’re missing one or more teeth, instead you may be dealing with food stuck in your gaps, potential gum infections, pain, and a host of other issues. If a set of new teeth is on your Christmas wish list, you may want to look into dental implants in Fishers, IN.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial teeth designed to fit, look, and feel just like your real teeth. They replace your missing teeth with a sculpted smile that not only looks beautiful, but restores your ability to chew and eat normally. Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, you don’t need Santa to regain your confident, attractive smile.
Can I Replace One or Multiple Missing Teeth?
It’s entirely possible to replace an entire dental arch in the upper or lower jaw, or only replace one tooth. A single tooth implant is mounted on a post that’s inserted into the bone beneath the area of the missing tooth, while a full arch replacement is mounted on four to six posts spaced and inserted along the bone. If you’re missing multiple teeth your dentist may suggest removing the remaining teeth and replacing with a full arch, but for only one or two teeth single implants can work quite well.
Are Dental Implants Permanent?
The beauty of dental implants is they can last for a log time . As long as you keep your teeth, both natural and implanted, and maintain healthy gums, your implants will last as long or longer than your natural teeth.
