People are living longer than ever, and while regular brushing, flossing, and checkups allow many of us to maintain our natural smiles for a lifetime, sometimes our teeth just can’t keep up. If you’ve lost a tooth (or a few teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can rejuvenate both your smile and your oral health.
In addition to closing the gaps that come with missing teeth, dental implants can also help improve your speech, comfort, confidence and self-esteem. They can make eating easier, provide the security and durability of permanent teeth, and can help improve your oral health. The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, which means they have healthy gums with no sign of gum disease and a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw.
