Dental implants are universally considered to be the best option for missing teeth. They provide a permanent solution that leaves you with something that is as close to your natural teeth as you can possibly get. This is because when a tooth is damaged or when tooth decay is to the point that it needs to be removed, not only the crown or the part that you see is removed, but also the root is removed.
Dental implants replace both the visible part of the tooth and the root, and so they provide not only anesthetic, but also health benefits. If you are interested in dental implants, the best way to ensure a successful treatment is seeing a skilled implant dentist like Dr. Hogan.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be installed to serve as the basis for a bridge or dentures that will cover multiple teeth. These implants are the closest thing that you can get to the teeth that nature provided you with. They will allow you to eat, smile and laugh confidently without ever worrying about the condition of your teeth.
Dental implants have been proven to be safe for more than 30 years. What makes them so safe is the fact that the materials that are used are biocompatible. They work perfectly with your body, and your body does not try to reject them.
When your dental implant procedure is performed by a well-trained implant dentist like Dr. Hogan, it is both safe and predictable. There is no other device available for teeth replacement that provides you with the same level of security, quality and stability that a dental implant can.
Some people may ask if dental implants are right for them. The answer to that question is likely yes if you are missing one or more teeth. Just about everyone who is in good health and who has a mature jaw is a good candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are perfect for individuals who have had dentures for some time and who are sick and tired of the drawbacks of wearing dentures or who just do not want to wear dentures anymore.
