So you’ve lost a tooth. Your dentist has probably suggested a variety of options that you could use to replace your tooth. Considering all these options can sometimes be overwhelming. Whenever possible, Dr. Ed Lazer suggests dental implants. Dental implants are 98% successful and provide a restoration that looks natural and works well.
Comfortable and Secure
One of the biggest complaints many people have about dentures is slippage. In fact, there is a whole range of jokes related to the idea that dentures can make it hard to speak or eat. Dental implants are a permanent solution that provides the answer to this problem. The titanium post is placed directly into the jaw, mimicking the root of a natural tooth. This means that your implants should be just as stable as a healthy tooth, with no risk of slippage.
Maintain Your Lifestyle
Another big complaint surrounding dentures and dental bridges is the limitations of your diet. Crunchy, chewy, or sticky foods can all be difficult or impossible to eat with one of these appliances. Because the placement of dental implants is permanent, however, you can eat what you want without fear of damage or discomfort. Caring for your implants is also easy – just brush, floss, and use mouthwash as you would normally.
Beautiful, Natural Results
The post that secures your implant is hidden in the gums and invisible from the outside. The crown is made from high-quality porcelain that mimics the appearance of real tooth material. What all this means is that from every angle, your tooth should be indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
