dental implantsIf you go online, there are a lot of sites and posts about dental implants. Which one should you choose? Is this one more helpful than that one? Truthfully, unless you work in a dentist office, you probably won’t know the ins and outs of a dental implant procedure. That’s okay—the right patient information is what matters. Dr. James Lewis lists five informative facts about dental implants. New Port Richey residents can enjoy these facts!

Fact 1: Rebuild Your Smile, Support Your Jaw

Don’t leave your teeth hanging. You need to find a tooth replacement as soon as possible to prevent your jawbone from resorbing. Why would it resorb? Since the tooth is gone so is the root that always stimulated the jawbone. An implant is the only restorative procedure that can do that for you.

Fact 2: Look Comfortable, Feel Comfortable 

You shouldn’t feel self conscious about your new tooth or teeth. You need to be positive about which prosthesis you choose. If you go with a dental implant, you won’t have the sensation of a real tooth, but it will feel like one. Plus, no one will notice the difference between a synthetic crown and your natural teeth.

Fact 3: Cement Your Tooth’s New Status 

A permanent solution is the best solution. There is less hassle for you. Once the jawbone establishes a connection to an implant, it is permanently held there, so it doesn’t fall out.

Fact 4: Speak and Eat with Ease

Implants are permanent, so it stays in while you eat. And it will be easier to pronounce your words.

Fact 5: Smile Again

You don’t want to spend the rest of your life without a full set of teeth. If you want back that toothy smile, think about dental implants or another restorative procedure, such as a fixed bridge, to help you achieve newfound confidence.
