Dental Implants –are they right for you?
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be all too aware of their importance to your looks and your dental health. Your teeth are designed to work together to help you chew, speak, and smile. When teeth are missing, it is difficult to do these things. Even the loss of a back tooth may cause your mouth to shift and your face to look older. Fortunately, missing teeth can be replaced. Replacement teeth should last for years, so it is important to choose a treatment that’s right for you. Many patients choose implants to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or to support a full set of dentures. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. They are made of titanium (a strong, lightweight metal) and other materials that are accepted by the human body. Most patients find that an implant is secure and stable – a good replacement for their own tooth. However, implants are not an option for everyone.
