With new advances in dental technology and the ease of treatment, there is no reason that every patient should not love their smile. Your smile is a big part of who you are, and we believe you should always have the confidence you need to show it off.
If you have missing or broken teeth, we offer dental implants in Richmond, VA to preserve your natural smile and that you feel great about the way you look. Dental implants are an alternative to dentures and provide unique benefits to patients!
Because dental implants replace the natural tooth entirely, they can be cared for easily. Dental implants are typically created out of metal or ceramic, which makes them highly durable and long-lasting. As a result, your implants can last for many years without any special care or attention necessary. Clean the implants as you would your natural teeth through brushing, flossing, and regular dental exams. Your standard oral hygiene regimen can protect you from potential oral health problems and gum disease problems associated with dental implants, just like natural teeth.
If you have lost teeth, your jaw may start to deteriorate from lack of use and not having anything else in place to maintain it. When the jawbone is compromised, your smile may lose its natural shape and look different. Implants are posts that are installed straight into the jawline, whereas dentures are simply an aesthetic cover. Since implants serve as a tooth root, the jawbone is preserved and will not deteriorate over time. This makes dental implants an excellent option for protecting the jawbone. With dental implants, you can keep your natural smile for years to come!
Certain foods become difficult to eat with dentures because the teeth may slip or be too painful to eat with. After complete healing and transitioning into permanent restorations, with dental implants, you will never have to worry about losing weight or adjusting your diet simply because of missing teeth. This will open many new diet possibilities and give you more freedom with what you can eat. Enjoy all the foods you love without worrying that your teeth will fall out in the middle of a dinner party!
