Don’t let tooth loss ruin your smile. Dental implants might be what you are looking for.
While we know all the perils and frustrations that come with losing a permanent tooth, our Gold Canyon, AZ, dentists Dr. Jonathan Lovell and Dr. Matthew Scheerhorn also want to make sure that you get a dental restoration that will not just replace your missing tooth (or teeth) but also make you confident in your smile again. Find out more about dental implants and whether they are right for you.
Next Best Alternative to Natural Teeth
While maintaining healthy natural teeth is obviously the ideal scenario, if you end up needing to replace a missing tooth then you want a restoration that looks, feels, and even functions like a real tooth. The only restoration that truly does this is a dental implant.
They Boast Longevity
We know that when it comes to dental work you want your restoration to last as long as possible. While maintaining good oral hygiene is imperative to keeping a healthy restoration, we also know that dental bridges and dentures can only last so long before needing to be replaced. The great thing about dental implants is that once they are placed they can last the rest of your life if you care for them properly.
Feel Confident Again
We all know that having gaps in your smile can be downright embarrassing, so it’s only natural that you want to fill those gaps with a restoration that you won’t have to worry about or think about all the time. Once dental implants naturally bond with the bone and tissue you better believe that your new tooth isn’t going anywhere. While dentures might shift or move around in your mouth while you speak dental implants stay in place. You’ll enjoy eating all your favorite foods, talking to your friends or going out on that date you’ve been putting off.
Preserve Your Face Shape
A lot of people don’t realize that your problem doesn’t just end once the tooth falls out. Untreated tooth loss can cause other issues for your oral health. Since tooth roots from the missing tooth are no longer stimulating the jawbone, the jawbone will begin to deteriorate and lose density. As a result, the jawbone will no longer be able to support your facial structure. Those with untreated tooth loss often deal with a sagging, sunken face, not to mention premature wrinkles. By getting dental implants from our Gold Canyon general dentists as soon as possible, we could prevent this from happening.
