Are you the type of person who tends to let your oral health take a back seat while you take care of other needs? If so, the New Year is the perfect excuse to improve your appearance and your confidence with attractive and durable dental implants. They’ll not only take away the embarrassment of missing teeth, but will restore your dental function as well. There’s no better way to start the new year than with a brand new, improved smile.
Why Get Dental Implants?
Do a little research and you’ll see several options for tooth replacement, so why should you choose dental implants? The answer is simple. When compared to other treatments for tooth loss, implants offer several unique benefits. Here are a few of the most notable:
Implants are a long-term solution to tooth loss and typically last up to 25 years (or potentially longer), as long as they are cared for well. They don’t draw unneeded attention because they look just like real teeth and function like real teeth as well. Implants also provide healthy stimulation to the bone of the jaw and prevent the degradation that typically happens after a tooth is lost. No other tooth replacement option can offer this benefit.
You should know that not everyone is a candidate for implants. To find out if you qualify for this popular procedure, schedule an appointment with you periodontist in Nashville, TN, as soon as possible. The longer you leave your empty tooth sockets untreated, the more your jaw bone is likely to degrade and become too thin to support implants.
