All these things ultimately help to enhance the look of your smile. A healthy smile is clean and bright, and at Lane Oral Surgery in Plymouth and Sandwich, Massachusetts dentists like Dr. William Lane are here to help make sure that your smile stays healthy for life.
Dental implants are an exciting choice for treatment that significantly improves both the teeth’s appearance and health. Such tiny permanent implants handily replace lost, damaged, or contaminated teeth. The results have great visual appeal, and can significantly improve the overall oral health of a patient.
A Closer Look at Dental Implant Benefits
The aesthetic and medical benefits of dental implants go together. These are some of the main reasons patients are opting for this particular form of treatment:
Cost effectiveness – Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option, unlike conventional dentures which may need to be replaced in the future; the primary cost is implant placement, not follow-up treatment.
Great cosmetic results – Dental implants look exactly the same as natural teeth; patients love the beautiful, flawless appearance.
Replace single teeth or several – Implants can be mounted individually, or in a linked sequence, depending on the patient’s needs. Even if many current teeth split the spaces left by missing teeth, implants can be used with success.
Long-term health benefits – Implants use a small titanium rod that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone. It provides a kind of artificial tooth base, helping to strengthen the implant crown (the visible portion); the titanium post also helps to improve bone health and protect neighboring teeth.
Easy care – there isn’t any special cleaning products that are required for dental implants to keep them looking and working their very best. Your standard fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with mildly or lightly textured bristles is fine. You can also use your favorite mouthwash brand and dental floss.
