In today’s world, dentists have a variety of options when it comes to helping patients obtain the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. One way that Dr. Cervenka relies on is implant dentistry, which is the placing of new teeth that most closely resemble the function and appearance of the natural tooth.
Dental implants are stable, strong and restores lost teeth so that they feel, function, fit and look just like a natural tooth. When placed correctly by a qualified dentist, they don’t require extra care and can protect and preserve the bone in your jaw.
The Basics of Dental Implants
If placed correctly and cared for with regular brushing, flossing and visits to the dentist, implants can last forever. While they may be more expensive up front, the fact that there is rarely cause to replace them can save you money in the long run.
With dental implants, you can enjoy living without any worry about your teeth. Implants are implanted directly into the jaw, meaning they function as your normal teeth. While dentures may slip while you are eating or speaking, implants will not move from your jaw.
Because implants are placed directly in the jawbone, they also hold the spot for the missing tooth and stimulate bone growth. This allows your jaw to retain its natural shape and overall, keeps the mouth healthier.
You can eat whatever you want with implants. With dentures, there may be limitations on certain foods, but implants allow you to speak freely and eat what you want, when you want. The material used to make implants is not susceptible to acids or bacteria that cause cavities, although you still want to see a dentist regularly for a cleaning and check-up.
