If you have ever lost a tooth, then you already know how damaging this can be for your smile. Seeking timely treatment for tooth loss can make all the difference to your short and long term oral health.
One of the most health-boosting tooth replacement treatments is the dental implant. There are a number of reasons to choose dental implants, and today our Glendale dental implant dentists will be reviewing how dental implants can actually help you maintain oral health.
It all starts at the root
The dental implant is unique because it has a dental implant root, which replaces the missing natural tooth root. The implant root is made of titanium: a material that is able to bond with natural bone. Consequently, once your dental implant is in place, the implant root actually works to support you natural bone tissue and avoid tooth-loss-related jawbone deterioration.
Protect your natural teeth
Dental implants also don’t need to be attached to adjacent natural teeth in order to stay in place. This means that we don’t need to put potentially harmful pressure on your remaining natural teeth in order to restore your smile.
Ease of care
It is also quite easy to care for your smile once you have a dental implant in place. You’ll be able to brush, floss, and complete professional cleanings just as you do now. Because dental implants are so simple to care for, you can diligently protect your smile from dangerous plaque and tartar. And you don’t need to mess with any special cleaning solutions in order to keep your dental implants in good shape.
If you are looking for an attractive and functional way to restore your smile, the dental implant might be perfect for you. Please feel free to call our Glendale dentists when you are ready to get started!
