Why Dental Implants?
Today, there are various treatment options for you to consider when you want to replace a missing tooth. Dental treatment available for you can differ in cost, suitability, and complexity. Some of the most common treatment procedures include having dentures, implants, bridges, crowns, and veneers. So, how will you know if you need dental implants and not another treatment option?
Here at Southwood Dental Studio, we assess our patients and evaluate what their oral needs are to plan the most appropriate treatment management. For patients who need dental implants, here are some of the reasons why you may need to have them.
Permanent and Long-Lasting: A dental implant is placed into your jawbone during surgery. After 2 to 3 months, your mouth will heal, and the implant will permanently fuse to your bones. Dental Implants are stable and long lasting, unlike dentures that can come undone at the least convenient time.
Prevent Shifting of Teeth: Surrounding teeth will eventually move when you lose a tooth to fill in the spaces in your teeth. Having a dental implant now can keep your teeth in proper alignment and reduce your risk of having bone deterioration.
Improves Appearance: When you have missing teeth, your jawbone will start to deteriorate causing your face to sunken, and you will look a lot older than your actual age. To prevent this from happening, get a dental implant that will provide you a dense and healthy jawbone while having youthful facial features
