Do you hide your smile because you are missing one or more teeth? You are not alone. Studies say that two-thirds of adults find themselves in the same situation. Missing teeth not only impacts your self-confidence and overall appearance, but can also lead to jawbone loss and other serious health issues over time.
Dr. Whitlock offers patients a solution designed to permanently rebuild and refresh your smile. Dental implants using titanium posts have proven to be the best treatment option for patients seeking a long-term, smile enhancing solution.
Here are four things you should know about tooth replacement with Dental Implants.
1. Dental Implants Look and Feel Natural
Dental implants are shaded and custom-made to fit naturally in your existing smile. They are the next best thing to real teeth. In terms of how they look and function, the only difference between your real teeth and dental implants is they're not real.
2. Dental Implants Make Eating More Enjoyable
Unlike the challenges sometimes experienced by removable dental prosthesis, dental implants are permanently affixed to your mouth and act like normal teeth. They do not slide, shift or move at all regardless of what you choose to eat. No pain. No extra work. Eat and enjoy.
3. Dental Implants Are Designed to Last a Lifetime
The titanium used in dental implants is designed to fuse to your existing jawbone structure to provide long-term tooth replacement. This process, called osseointegration, will not only replace your teeth but will also stabilize your bite and prevent any future bone loss.
4. Dental Implants Will Not Cause Issues at the Airport
Just in case you're wondering… the titanium used in dental implants will not set off the metal detectors at the airport. You are free to fly with your new smile.
