You’ve probably heard a lot about dental implants . In truth, they are one of the most effective ways to replace missing teeth. Let me explain why.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is permanently placed in your gums. Unlike bridges and dentures, implants look, feel and function like your natural teeth. This prevents jawbone loss, allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and enables you to chew properly so you receive proper nutrition from your food.
Implants are also versatile. For instance, if you have dentures that don’t fit right, implants can be used to permanently anchor the dentures in your mouth. With implant-supported dentures , there is no embarrassing slipping and you can fully chew your food. Similarly, an implant-supported bridge is more secure and enables you to chew more comfortably.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, I recommend dental implants to all my patients who are candidates for the procedure. They can often completely transform someone’s quality of life. If you wonder if dental implants are right for you, come see me for a complimentary consultation. Call my office in Rockville, MD today to request an appointment.
I look forward to seeing you.
