Dental Implants: Your Best Option for Replacing Missing Teeth

If you’re embarrassed by missing teeth, but aren’t interested in wearing dentures, dental implants may be your best long-term solution for replacing missing teeth.

In addition to improving your smile, dental implants offer a variety of benefits you can’t get from other tooth replacement methods.

The skilled dental team at Midtown Dental Care offers comprehensive dental implant services to restore your oral health. Through custom treatment plans, they can give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of that will last for a lifetime.

Why you should consider dental implants

Besides a healthy smile, dental implants can go a long way toward improving your dental health and preventing complications down the road.

When you’re missing one or multiple teeth, the loss can have a significant impact on your life.

Missing teeth cause a variety of problems, like:

Missing multiple teeth can even change the shape of your face, causing your cheeks and lips to sink inward. These facial changes can add years to your appearance, taking away from your self-esteem and self-confidence.

Why implants are so effective

Unlike removable dentures and bridges, dental implants become a natural extension of your jaw bone. The dental team implants durable, titanium posts into your jaw that eventually fuse to the bone. This fusion creates a sturdy, stable anchor to hold the artificial tooth in place for a lifetime.

In addition to artificial tooth support, the implantation of an implant post actually stimulates your jaw to produce new, healthier cells. New cells help strengthen and improve your jaw health. You can heal a weakened jaw from the inside out and prevent jaw complications in the future.

Once the post and your jaw bone fuse together, the dental team attaches an artificial tooth that looks just like your natural teeth. Made of stain-resistant, dental-safe materials, the new teeth work just like your other teeth, allowing you to chew and speak without difficulty.

Midtown Dental Care only uses Straumann dental implants, made by the most advanced dental implant company in the world to ensure your ultimate satisfaction.

Implant maintenance is easy

It does take time for your jaw bone to heal and properly fuse to the titanium post. Most people require four to six months of healing time before the new teeth can be attached.

However, once your implants are complete, you maintain them just like you do your natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing is vital for preventing gum disease and decay in other teeth, even though your implant resists cavities. You also need to visit Midtown Dental Care every six months for a routine cleaning and oral health evaluation.

Otherwise, there’s nothing else you need to do to maintain your dental implants. You can get back to eating the foods you love and enjoy the confidence boost a beautifully restored smile gives you.

Whether you’re missing one prominent front tooth or several teeth throughout your mouth, the Midtown Dental Care team can design the custom dental implants you need to improve your oral health and enhance your natural smile.
