Why should I consider a Dental Implant?

There are many reasons why you should consider getting a dental implant. While implants are often considered for aesthetic reasons, they​ have many other benefits.

  1. Support your natural teeth: When you lose a tooth, the bone surrounding that tooth will gradually lose its density and will slowly retract. This can cause some of the surrounding natural teeth to lose their stability and without the support of an adjacent tooth, your teeth can drift out of position. This has both aesthetic and functional consequences and can affect your bite.

  2. Permanent: Dental implants are a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. Once planted correctly, there is no special maintenance needed (unlike dentures which require constant maintenance). You simply treat it like a natural tooth, brushing and flossing regularly!

  3. Eat naturally again: Dental implants can restore your ability to chew naturally.

  4. Enhance your smile: Completed correctly, dental implants are aesthetically pleasing and look completely natural, blending in perfectly with your other teeth.

  5. Retain your face shape: With missing teeth, your jawbone will deteriorate over time. This may cause your face to become sunken.
