What your dentist in New Port Richey wants you to knowdental implants

Dental implants are the modern answer to replace missing teeth. They can save your smile, restoring excellent chewing function and aesthetic beauty. You may know someone with dental implants and want to know more about the advantages and benefits of dental implant treatment. Dr. James Lewis in New Port Richey, FL, wants to help you discover the magic of dental implants.

When you choose dental implants, you are selecting the most successful surgical implant available. Implants boast an outstanding success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. With dental implants, you will enjoy benefits that can't be matched by traditional tooth replacement methods.

Unlike dental bridges, Dr. Lewis only prepares the dental implant area, not the teeth around the implant. This makes dental implants a very conservative procedure.

Dental implants are also:

  • A healthy choice, because you brush and floss them normally, just like your natural teeth
  • A cosmetically beautiful choice, because dental implants look just like natural teeth
  • A worry-free choice, because dental implants won’t ever stain or decay like natural teeth
  • A stable, immovable choice, because dental implants are embedded in bone so they are firmly fixed in place and won’t move

Another huge advantage of dental implants is that they can help you look younger than dental appliances. That’s because partials and dentures press against bone, causing your bone to diminish over time, which can make your facial contours and firm jawline sag. In contrast, dental implants can keep you looking younger by creating more supporting bone to fuse with the implant. Supporting bone is what gives you beautiful facial contours and well-defined jawline.

Dental implants are placed during a simple in-office procedure. After a healing period, a new implant crown is placed on top of the implant, giving you a natural-looking, permanent addition to your smile.

To learn more about the advantages and benefits of dental implants or to schedule an appointment, call Dr. James Lewis in New Port Richey, FL. You deserve a beautiful, complete smile so call today!
