Have you ever heard of dental implants? For patients missing one or more teeth, dental implants provide an advantageous means of tooth replacement. Implants last almost twice as long dental bridges and are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. In addition, a dental implant can preserve your facial features, as well as your smile. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, explain the benefits offered by our dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a replacement tooth that is anchored into the socket of a missing tooth. A dental implant can replace a single tooth or even be used to secure a full set of permanent dentures. With dental implants, your Livingston cosmetic dentists can rejuvenate your smile.
Preserve Your Smile
When you lose a tooth, a chain reaction begins. First, the body stops supplying the surrounding jawbone with crucial doses of calcium and phosphorus. Deprived of these essential nutrients, the bone starts to dissolve. Over time, the loss of bone density increases the risk of further tooth loss and unsightly misalignment. Bone loss also affects appearance, altering the facial structure and causing many patients to develop jowls or sunken cheeks. The body accepts a dental implant as a natural tooth, resuming the flow of vital nutrients. This prevents bone loss, protecting and preserving your appearance.
Durable and Natural Looking
When placed into the socket of a missing tooth, a dental implant bonds with the bone tissue. Then, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will attached a custom-made and natural looking crown to the top of the implant. With proper care, a dental implant can last for 25 years.
