Living with one or more missing teeth can affect your life in so many different ways, from what you can comfortably eat, how you speak, even how you view yourself. If you feel embarrassed by a gap in your smile, we can help!
Dental implants can effectively restore your missing tooth down to the root. If you are considering dental implants, you might be interested in learning about their benefits.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
While restoring one or multiple teeth has obvious cosmetic benefits, there are significant health advantages for patients who choose to get them.
- Implants are incredibly reliable, with a 95 per cent success rate.
- With proper care, they can last a lifetime.
- They look, feel, and function like a natural tooth.
- They stimulate healthy bone to stop the jaw bone from receding.
Treating Bone Loss
A leading reason for tooth loss is gum disease, which is a severe condition that can affect your jaw bone and gum tissue. Without sufficient bone density, a dental implant cannot be properly supported.
At Lumino Smiles Dental, we can offer bone grafting to restore lost bone to place a dental implant.
Replacing Multiple Teeth
Dental implants are a popular option for restoring a missing tooth, and they can also be used to support appliances like dental bridges or dentures. Patients with multiple missing teeth can choose from several options to stabilizing and supporting their smile.
If you already have dentures, you may appreciate the added assistance and customized fit that dental implants can provide.
