Top Reasons to Choose Dental Implants

It can be very emotional to have a tooth extracted or deal with a missing tooth or teeth. After dealing with those emotions, we at Friendly Family Dentistry don’t want choosing a tooth replacement option to be a difficult decision for you. We work with our patients to help them make a decision on an option that is most beneficial to their lifestyle. That being said, our first recommendation and most popular choice among patients are dental implants.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Despite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans still incur tooth loss, mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. For many years, the only solutions to these problems were the use of crowns, bridges, and dentures. Thankfully, today we also have dental implants. A dental implant is a high-tech replacement tooth that mimics the whole tooth structure. A titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gum line and then a crown, or the replacement tooth, is affixed to the implant.
