3 Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants in our Indianapolis, Perry Township, IN dental office are the best choice when it comes to tooth replacement. No other dental aesthetic insert available today, in fact, has the ability to replicate a natural tooth quite like a dental implant.
The dental implant process at Shank Dentistry begins with a comprehensive oral exam or x-ray. If the dentist decides you’re a good candidate for a dental implant, you will be scheduled to begin the process at your next dental visit.
Placement day means gum preparation and a small titanium post placed in your jaw. This post bonds with your jawbone and creates a stable foundation over time. Soon you will be fitted with an abutment and a new tooth that perfectly matches the shade and shape of your other teeth.
Dental implants, or the small titanium posts, can be strategically placed to host an affixed denture or an entire bridge of artificial, natural-looking teeth.
Now let's look at a few benefits of dental implants.
An Enhanced Smile
Dental implants are so natural looking that no one will know it’s an implant. This is true even if you decide to go with multiple implants, an affixed denture, or a bridge of new teeth.
When teeth are missing, chewing your favorite foods becomes difficult. With dental implants, this problem goes away.
Better Oral Health
When teeth are missing, existing teeth begin to shift into the open or empty sockets, which can lead to crooked teeth. Also, when teeth are missing, certain teeth are designated to do most of the chewing, which leads to wear and tear.
If you’re considering dental implants and want to learn whether you’re a good candidate, schedule an assessment with our Indianapolis, Perry Township, IN dental office today. The staff at Shank Dentistry look forward to helping you realize your best smile.
