Why Dental Implants Are a Popular Option for Replacing Teeth
If you recently dealt with tooth loss or the news that dental extractions are in your future, it’s the perfect time to consider your options to replace your missing teeth. Dental implants are one of the most popular choices in our Cincinnati, OH dental office. With the many benefits they provide, it’s no wonder!
Dental Implants Are Like Having Your Tooth Back
Instead of just filling the space left by a missing tooth, dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root. Because dental implants are rooted in bone, and because they integrate with your natural jawbone, they keep your bone healthy and prevent deterioration due to tooth loss.
Dental implants also look just like a natural tooth. Dr. James Wright meticulously matches dental implants to your surrounding teeth.
Dental Implants Are Low Maintenance
If the idea of cleaning around a dental bridge twice a day for the rest of your life is unappealing to you, you will love dental implants. Single dental implants require the same type of care as your natural teeth – brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings are usually enough to prevent gum disease and keep your implant healthy.
Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Because dental implants fuse with your natural bone, the implant post can last a lifetime. Implant crowns may crack, or become damaged, but we can easily replace the crown, leaving the dental implant in place.
Gum and bone disease are the only common threats to your dental implant’s health. Maintaining healthy gums and addressing any gum disease early is essential. Otherwise, you are looking at a dental treatment that will last for decades – or even a lifetime.
