What Are Dental Implants?

If you have lost permanent teeth you might have been told to try dental implants. But what are dental implants and how do they work? Here is some information, and Makowski Dental can also answer your questions.

What Are Dental Implants?Dental implants are tooth replacements. They are permanent and they are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants improve your appearance because they look and feel like your natural teeth. They are designed to become permanent because they fuse with your bone. Another benefit is that they improve your speech. If you’ve worn dentures, you know they can slip. When they slip it can cause you to slur your words or have trouble eating.

Implants can’t slip. They are much more comfortable because they become permanent and don’t move around in your mouth. Dentures can be uncomfortable, especially when food particles get in between the dentures and your gums. You don’t have to eliminate certain foods because biting into them means your dentures will slip. Implants don’t require damaging other teeth like a bridge does, and are very durable. Done correctly you may never need to replace them.

Don’t you want to feel better about how you look, and feel better because your oral health is improved? Implants can give you self-confidence and a great smile. Nothing makes you feel better.

If you are healthy enough to have any routine oral surgery, and have healthy gums and bone, you are a good candidate for implants. Caring for them is a lot like caring for your natural teeth, so if you have issues with dental hygiene, your dentist may not recommend them to you. Most dental insurance doesn’t cover implants, but your medical insurance may. Contact both to see which, or if, either will help.
