Besides giving you a better smile, dental implants can help with good dental health. Food, plaque, and bacteria build up easily when you have missing teeth. You may also have trouble cleaning the area, and many people end up developing cavities and other dental problems. Dental implants can also make it easier to eat and speak.
Dental implants are basically used as roots (and a base) for any artificial teeth that will be placed in your mouth. If you didn’t have implants, your artificial teeth will be weak, and you may end up losing them.
With proper care, dental implants will last your whole life. However, you still need to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash. Routine dental checkups are also important to maintain good dental health.
After you start to lose your teeth, you can have problems. Your teeth and bones will start to shift, causing you to have trouble eating. This may also alter the look of your face. Because of this, dentures can be very helpful.
We offer two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are for when all of your teeth are missing and partials are for when you still have a few teeth.
There are also conventional and immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are made prior to removing your teeth while conventional dentures are made afterward. It then takes eight to twelve weeks to get them in.
