The Versatility Of Implant Dentistry
You've likely heard of dental implants, which replace natural teeth with a realistic and long-lasting substitute. If you have missing teeth, you may have wondered what dental implants could do for you. Dr. Mark H. Docktor, of Dental Arts of Englewood has listed three easy-to-remember reasons why implant dentistry makes for the most appealing of all dental restoration options available.
A full set of healthy teeth gives a person the appearance of being approachable. Conversely, missing or decayed teeth can convey an image of being unkempt or standoffish, particularly if the person takes steps to hide their smile. With dental implants from your Englewood dentist filling in any gaps or replacing any unsightly teeth, you'll feel much more self-assured.
Dental implants don't just look like real teeth - they function like them as well. With the titanium post acting as the root, your restorations from your Englewood implant dentistry specialist stay exactly where they should for many decades, if not an entire lifetime. There's no need to remove them at the end of the day, use a special cleaning solution or avoid certain foods. With dental implants, you simply brush, floss and stay current on checkups at Dental Arts of Englewood.
While dentures can loosen throughout the course of the day, finished dental implants will not shift in place, giving you unmatched comfort in addition to attractiveness and stability. The healing process for them is also much more comfortable than a tooth extraction. Since your Englewood implant dentist must suture the gums to protect the implant's post, there are no open wounds that require longer healing times and more discomfort.
