Restoring Your Dental Implants
posted: Oct. 09, 2020.
Dental implants are a great investment in your oral health. They're long-lasting, durable, and look just like natural teeth. The dental team at Personal Choice Dental in Old Bridge, New Jersey offers three reasons why restoring your smile with dental implants is an excellent decision.
1. They look great.
Unlike other replacements for missing teeth, restoring your smile with dental implants means that only you and your Old Bridge dentist will know that you have them. That's because all the hardware is hidden underneath your gum line, just like the roots of natural teeth. Installation of the implant's post is done during a brief procedure at Personal Choice Dental, where one of our dentists will make an indentation where your missing tooth once was. The post is then put into the space in the jawbone, which will grow back around the post and stabilize it. The only part of your implant that will be seen is the crown, which looks and feels as realistic as a natural tooth.
2. They're easy to care for.
It's no secret that dental implants restore the way your smile looks, but what you may not know is that the maintenance involved is very simple. There's no need for removal or special cleaning products. Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and visiting Personal Choice Dental in Old Bridge is all it takes to keep your dental implants secure. Although the metal and porcelain implant can't decay, it's still important to keep your gums and remaining natural teeth healthy.
3. They last a long time.
Taking care of your dental implants has a long-term benefit: they can last for the rest of your life. Studies have shown that the permanence of dental implants combined with diligent oral care makes dental implants the longest-lasting tooth restoration available today. Wearing a dental implant also puts you at less risk for further tooth loss; gaps in your smile cause your other teeth to shift out of place, which can cause more problems down the road.
By restoring your smile with dental implants from your Old Bridge dentist, you're investing in the future of your teeth for many years to come. Contact Personal Choice Dental in Old Bridge, New Jersey to schedule a consultation with a member of our dental team. Call us at (732) 727-1211 today.
