If you have been delaying a treatment, now is the perfect time to schedule your appointment. Or if you need a tooth replacement, there is no better time to start the process. There is one option that you should consider due to the many benefits it offers patients. Read on to learn more about this permanent tooth replacement option.
When Should You Consider Dental Implants?
We know that it can be frustrating to be missing a tooth, deal with frequent decay, and repeated visits to repair broken hardware. There is a tooth replacement option that can eliminate all these frustrations and leave you with a permanent solution you will love — dental implants. A dental implant consists of a titanium artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once fused with the bone, the implant will create stability and offer the stimulation the jawbone requires to remain healthy. Once healed, the implant will be permanently covered by a natural-looking replacement tooth such as a dental crown.
If you would love to learn more about dental implants but are not sure if you would be a good candidate for treatment. These are some factors that may help answer your questions before speaking with our team:
- Your tooth is severely cracked and the damage goes into the tooth root
- You wear dentures and are frustrated with the restrictions and need a permanent change
- You have a missing tooth due to decay, illness, trauma, effects of medication, and more
Are Dental Implants the Right Choice?
Patients love the numerous benefits that dental implants can offer. They love enjoying their favorite foods and not having to worry about their dental hardware falling out as with dentures. Although the process can be lengthy and more costly than other options, the results can last the rest of your life when cared for properly.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in making changes to your smile this year. Be sure to contact our office located in Bowie, MD to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
