The Perfect Choice For Tooth Replacement
Are you missing a tooth or teeth and are trying to decide on the perfect tooth replacement option? At Ackley Dental Group, we know it can be very upsetting when one of our patients is missing a tooth. No matter if the reason is due to decay or an accident, missing teeth can affect multiple aspects of life, from appearance to speech and the ability to enjoy favorite foods. We want our patients to know there is a tooth replacement option that can not only improve oral health but also overall quality of life. Dental implants are the popular choice among many of our patients and offer numerous benefits.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of two components. The first component is an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. The second component is a replacement tooth, such as a crown, that is used to cover the implant, completing the procedure. Dental implants become permanent in the mouth when the artificial root fuses with the jawbone. Unlike alternative tooth replacement options such as dentures, dental implants are a solution that can last for decades, possibly even the rest of your life.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are a number of reasons why dental implants are a popular choice for many patients. Dental implants are the best alternative to regular teeth, as the look and functionality of the implant mimics that of a natural tooth. Another important benefit is the quality of the materials used during the procedure. They are biocompatible and non-toxic, which eliminates the possibility of being rejected by the body. Additional benefits include:
- Eliminating the possibility of an aging or sagging face from lack of stimulation due to missing teeth
- Keeping surrounding teeth stable and not allowing teeth to shift
- Allowing patients to enjoy favorite foods with no difficulty
- Eliminating the use of adhesives or dental glue
- No speech issues due to slipping in the mouth
