Why Should I Consider Dental Implants?
Your entire set of teeth work together closely to keep you healthy. One missing tooth can create a variety of serious issues, including:
- Continuous and Worsening Jaw Pain
- Increased Risk of Infections
- Weakening of Neighboring Teeth
- Drifting of Neighboring Teeth
- Bone Loss in Your Jaw
- Problems with Speech
- Problems with Eating
- Early Aging from Facial Sagging
If you have severely damaged or extremely decayed teeth or any missing teeth, you should consider having one or more dental implants.
Am I A Candidate for Dental Implants?
Almost everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. However, there are a few key issues that will either make you unsuitable for dental implants or need to be addressed before you start the process. Our Travelers Rest dentist will evaluate you and make sure that you are a good candidate for dental implants.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a permanent replacement tooth. The implant serves as a replacement for the roots of the tooth and provides a stable foundation for any additional fixed or removable teeth. The dental implant is surgically inserted into the lower or upper jaw, which allows the replacement teeth to fit securely into the gums and imitate the appearance and feel of natural teeth.
