When you replace a lost tooth, you might be worried that they won't feel exactly how your natural teeth used to. You might worry about having to make some changes about what you eat and how you care for your teeth. However, that's not the case with dental implants. Your Easton, MD, Family dentist, Dr. Irving Phillips, and Dr. Wade Dressler of Dental Choice offer dental implants to restore your smile.
Chances are you've probably heard of dental implants because they're pretty popular for tooth replacement. In case you haven't, dental implants are tooth replacements closely resembling your natural teeth that your dentist can surgically implant into your jaw bone.
If you're looking to replace a single lost tooth, a few teeth, or all your teeth, dental implants could be your best bet. For complete tooth replacement, you don't need to get a dental implant for each tooth. As little as two, four, or six dental implants could support your tooth restoration.
Tooth loss could present with the dreaded side effect, jaw bone density loss. This side effect happens because of lost stimulation to your jaw bone and most tooth restorations don't restore this stimulation. Losing bone density could cause facial sagging and wrinkling around your mouth.
However, dental implants can help prevent jaw bone mass loss because they're implanted into your jaw bone. Therefore, getting your dental implants from your Easton, MD, family dentist could help you preserve your youthful appearance.
With dental implants, you never have to worry about your tooth restorations coming loose or falling off. Your dental implants could last you a lifetime with proper care, so, they're a great investment too.
One of the reasons dental implants are so popular is how natural they look and feel. After installing the metal root into your jaw, your dentist will attach the dental crown to your dental implant. They can customize your dental implant crown to look like your other natural teeth and no one will be able to tell the difference.
