Losing a tooth is enough to make you look and feel a bit disheveled. If you have recently lost a tooth and is still exploring your replacement options, consider getting a dental implant by Dr. Rick Winter. As a safe and routine procedure, a dental implant is a great way to restore your smile and help you to feel like your normal self once again. Read on to learn more about the benefits of choosing a dental implant.
They’re Nearly Permanent
Unfortunately, there is no real way to guarantee that your dental implant will last a lifetime. Things such as weak gums and a jaw, or dental decay can cause dental implants to fail and need to be replaced. However, by ensuring that you are taking the best care of them possible, you can help them to last for the rest of your life. By brushing them twice a day, avoiding things like chewing ice and your nails, and by visiting Dr. Rick Winter every six months for a dental cleaning, you will be on your way to making your dental implants last longer.
They Function Like a Normal Tooth
Dental implants are surgically implanted into your gums. So, unlike things like dentures, they won’t wiggle or become loose after you’ve been eating. In fact, because they are implanted into your actual gum, you will be able to chew things like steak and corn on the cob without running into an issue. Additionally, they will also help you to smile just like you did before— with confidence and ease.
They Look Natural
If you think a dental implant is going to look something like a giant gold tooth resting in your mouth, you are mistaken. As one of the greatest benefits of dental implants, they can be matched to your natural tooth’s size, shape, and color. As soon as you get your dental implant, nobody will be able to notice the difference between your implant and your natural teeth.
