4 Facts about Dental Implants

Many Charlotte residents will lose a tooth at some point in their lives, but that doesn’t mean your smile needs to suffer. There are numerous ways to fix a lost tooth, but today, Dr. Michael Berglass would like to educate you about the best option for a healthy smile that will last a lifetime: dental implants. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, don’t hesitate to give us at Central Avenue Dental a call.

Implants function just like real teeth

If you are looking for a solution that will preserve and improve the health of your mouth, implants are the way to go. Although dentures and bridges can help simulate the function of real teeth, they do not stimulate the jawbone. Implants are placed directly into the jawbone, just like the root of a tooth. As a result, they can put a stop to painful, damaging reabsorption, so that you never have to deal with that “sunken in” look to your face. On top of that, implants are sturdier than any other form of dental appliance.

Implants stabilize other appliances

If you already have bridges, crowns, or dentures and are considering implants, listen to this – implants add stability to other appliances. Because they are rooted in the jawbone like real teeth, they serve as excellent support systems for appliances and help to maintain the natural structure of your face. There are even implant-supported dentures available today that are far more stable than traditional dentures of the past.

Implants can last a lifetime

It is common to hear about dental appliances needing to be adjusted, fixed or replaced altogether. Charlotte residents with dentures, bridges, and/or crowns may find that they can wear out and require attention. However, implants have the potential to last a lifetime when cared for properly. While there is no way to be certain, the odds are in your favor. If you practice good dental hygiene and visit Dr. Michael Berglass for your scheduled cleanings, your implant will likely stick with you forever.
