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.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are inserted into the jaw bone during a minor surgical procedure that takes place in our office. After the healing process is complete, a replacement tooth, such as a crown, is then placed to finish the process. An implant can be used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth and are popular due to their natural looking finish.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
When choosing a tooth replacement option, it is important to consider two important factors: cost and longevity. While dental implants are not the most affordable option, the fact that they have the potential to last the rest of your lifetime greatly makes up for the cost. It is important to consider the cost and maintenance of a more affordable option over the rest of your life, and you might be surprised to learn that dental implants are more reasonably priced than you would think. There are many other reasons to choose dental implants such as:
- Prevent jawbone loss
- Easy to care for
- Blend in seamlessly with other natural teeth
- Ability to eat your favorite foods
- Enjoy the rest of your life without worrying about your teeth
