Dental implants are replacement tooth roots, implants provide a strong foundation or fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to march your natural teeth
There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
- Improved appearance;
- Improved speech;
- Improved comfort; easier eating;
- Improved self-esteem;
- Improved oral health;
In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorder, such as diabetes or heart disease, or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis. If you are considering implants, talk to your dentist to see if they are right for you.
