- Implants look natural
Dental implants are designed to blend in perfectly with your natural smile. The ceramic crown used is custom-made for you to match your other teeth and the material is as strong as your natural teeth.
- Implants are strong
Dental implants are made from a titanium post that is implanted in your jaw bone by your Jacksonville, NC, dentist. During a healing period, a process called osseointegration takes place. Your jawbone fuses to the implant, giving it its strength so it will never move around.
- Implants keep your jaw bone strong
Missing teeth pose a threat to the strength of your jaw bone. If you don't replace missing teeth, over time its strength will become compromised. With an implant, your jaw bone fuses to it and remains strong. This also means less facial sagging in the area of a missing tooth. Dental implants can even make you look younger!
- Implants are easy to care for
To take great care of your dental implant, you just need to keep up a great oral hygiene routine. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Be sure to floss in the area of the implant and remove all debris from around the crown. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist will recommend a nightguard to protect the crown.
- Implants are convenient
Dental implants are convenient because you never have to take them out. They become a permanent part of your smile and they never decay, so you will have a beautiful tooth for years!
