Benefits of Dental Implants
Besides appearance, dental implants are needed for good dental health. Food, plaque, and bacteria will build up wherever you are missing teeth. This buildup can be really hard to clean, so you may end up developing cavities and other dental problems.
Dental implants have many other benefits too. It is easier to eat with them. Also, many people find that their speech is much better.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are used to replace your teeth roots. They act as roots (and a base) for permanent teeth that will be placed later. Without implants, your artificial teeth will be weak, and you may end up losing them.
When done correctly and cared for properly, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash with implants. It is also important to maintain routine dental checkups to ensure your mouth is still healthy.
