Choosing Dental Implants

Dental Implants Framingham MA

Many patients experience tooth loss. It could be due to poor dental hygiene or an incident. Fortunately, patients have an array of solutions for teeth replacement such as bridges, dentures, and dental implants. For quite some time, bridges and dentures have been the most popular. However, many patients are now choosing dental implants! Dental implants offer a permanent solution for damaged and missing teeth. In addition, they are also aesthetically appealing since they resemble natural teeth. Learn why patients prefer this modern teeth replacement below and contact us today.

Jaw Bone Preservation

Tooth roots naturally support the jaw bone and maintain its shape. Missing teeth cause the jaw bone to deteriorate. For this reason, dentists recommend dental implants. Implants are biocompatible titanium tooth roots that are inserted into the jaw bone. Once the area heals, an abutment is used to connect a dental crown. This completes the tooth’s restoration. In all, dental implants aid in replacing the missing tooth and maintaining the jaw bone shape.  

Easy Maintenance 

Dental implants are easy to care for. They require basic dental hygiene such as brushing and flossing. We recommend brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily to prevent issues such as periodontal disease. Also, visit us for your routine dental exams and cleanings for preventative dental care.

Permanent Solution

Implants offer patients a more permanent solution. In short, this teeth replacement option is fixed into the jaw bone. It allows patients to speak and eat confidently, without the worry of displacement. In addition, implants require simple care such as routine brushing and flossing. Implants are also known to last several years which is another reason why patients prefer them.

Although implants offer convenience, it is important to prevent periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a chronic gum inflammation that affects natural teeth. When the disease affects dental implants, it is known as peri-implantitis which causes implant failure. As a result, we encourage patients to maintain great dental hygiene habits and visit us for their scheduled visits.
