While bridges and dentures offer a way to address tooth loss, nothing offers quite the number of benefits as dental implants. In today’s blog, we’re looking at what makes implant dentistry so unique and such a lifelike and dependable option for replacing missing teeth in Tucson, AZ.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Long Lasting Tooth Replacement: The implant portion is made from biocompatible titanium, which means when inserted into the jawbone they bond with the tissue, acting as a new tooth root. As a result, they don’t require replacement after 5 to 10 years, and have the potential to last decades with proper care and attention.
- Natural Appearance: After placement, we add an abutment to the tooth that holds a dental crown in place. The dental crown will be custom-made from either ceramic or zironcia, ensuring a natural appearance and the ability to withstand serious pressure and bite forces. We shade the restoration to ensure it blends with the rest of the smile. We want our patients to enjoy a natural looking tooth replacement.
- Easy to Care For: Routine care keeps them strong and lifelike. You should brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each session. We also suggest flossing every night before bed. Doing so removes food particles from on and between the teeth, reducing the risk of tooth decay, infection, gum disease, and other issues that impact the health of your smile (and your new dental implant). We also suggest undergoing a routine checkup and cleaning every six months. The checkup allows us to monitor your new tooth and the cleaning removes plaque buildup and safeguard your smile’s health.
