Missing a tooth or multiple teeth can affect your confidence and make you feel the need to avoid showing off your smile. Dental implants are a long-lasting and durable tooth replacement option offered by your dentist, Dr. Stephen Harris, in Farmington, MI.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a tooth replacement solution consisting of a titanium post that is implanted and fused into the gums and jawbone and topped off with a dental crown. Dental implants from your Farmington, MI, dentist are durable and function just like any other tooth. They can help restore any biting and chewing functions that you may have begun to lose and can help you feel confident with your smile again.
Dental implants are designed to look natural and just like any other tooth because they are color-matched to the rest of your teeth. No one will know you were ever missing a tooth unless you tell them. Dental implants are also easy to care for and can last a lifetime! All you have to do to care for your dental implants is to be sure that you are brushing and flossing daily, just like you would with your regular teeth.
Another benefit of dental implants is that they can help prevent any facial sagging from happening in the future. When the implant is fused into the jawbone, it also provides stimulation to the gums again and helps stop the jawbone from deteriorating from the lack of stimulation.
