Let’s face it – missing teeth carry a serious stigma in our society. Dentists are now offering dental implants for corrective care. Dental implants can replace those missing teeth, and get that smile perfect. You don’t have to suffer anymore the stigma of lost teeth.
Implants have come a long way. Modern dental implants look just like real teeth. They aren’t dentures; they’re connected by an artificial root. The implants are actually anchored into your jaw, so that they’re virtually indistinguishable from real teeth. Because they’re connected in the same way that real teeth are, they are just as strong. You can eat any kinds of foods, and you don’t have to worry about them.
Dental implants are usually placed in just one sitting at the dentist’s office. After that, you’ve got to make sure you brush and floss diligently. You should be more careful at this stage, because the root is still connecting itself to the surrounding tissue. Proper brushing and flossing following the procedure is absolutely essential for the operation’s success. After they’ve been fully anchored, you can go about your usual routine and they require no more maintenance than your usual brushing and flossing.
Many people are so embarrassed by their missing teeth that they can’t talk or smile with full confidence. Dental implants replace your missing teeth with the next best thing. If you’re interested, talk to your dentist as soon as possible about getting them put in.
