If you have experienced tooth loss, you understand the importance of choosing from among your options for tooth replacement in order to improve your smile and your oral health. Each year, many patients choose to restore their smiles with custom-made dental implants, which not only replace teeth but also promote bone health. To learn if dental implants can help you with tooth replacement, we invite you to review the information we provided below.

Some of the benefits of dental implants that you can receive regarding the look and quality of your smile are improved speech, jawbone health, oral function and dental comfort, as a result of the durability and natural appearance of dental implants. The success rate of these dental restorations can be as high as 98 percent, making them popular for many patients due to their ability to restore oral function after tooth loss.

First, our dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants, meaning your gums and jawbone are healthy enough to support tooth extraction and the placement of a dental implant. Dental implants can be treated as real teeth as long as they receive proper care such as regular dental checkups every six months, flossing every day, rinsing with mouthwash and brushing your teeth twice a day.
