If you’re missing a tooth, you probably understand that there are several things you may be able to do. Naturally, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us so we can discuss your options. Furthermore, when you’re considering your potential options, we may recommend a dental implant.

As you may know, implants can actually restore functionality to your smile. In reality, with an implant, you should be able to chew, speak, and eat comfortably. Furthermore, your implants will be custom made to match the color of your other teeth, which will give you a pleasing look. Implants will also feel like one of your natural teeth.

Still, most restorations will offer you similar benefits. However, did you know that implants offer a number of other benefits? For example, would you be surprised to hear that implants can actually help you help you avoid wrinkle lines? You see, if you’re missing a tooth, your cheeks could sag. Similarly, implants will help your other teeth stay in place because it stimulates jaw growth. If your jaw isn’t simulated, the position of your other teeth could shift. Finally, please note that your implants are extremely durable. In fact, they could last for up to 30 years if cared for properly.
