Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to create a foundation for replacement teeth. If you were in an accident or suffered from an oral disease, dental implants may be a good option for you. Call Dental Group at Polaris today at (614) 888-3692 to schedule an appointment for your dental implants.
Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Persons of any age can potentially need dental implants. To get dental implants and to ensure optimal benefits, Dental Group at Polaris suggest you:
Practice good and proper oral hygiene
Have enough bone to hold the implant in place
Are healthy enough to receive oral surgery
Have healthy gums
Continue with routine dental visits
Since every patient is unique, some clients may need a more thorough exam to see if dental implants are a good treatment option for them. Further testing may be need if you:
Are a heavy smoker
Suffer from uncontrolled chronic disorders (like heart disease or diabetes)
Have had radiation therapy around the head or neck
Why Should I Get Dental Implants?
Dental implants may be a good option for you for a variety of reasons. Benefits of dental implants include:
Comfort: each implant is individually placed, allowing more comfort than dentures or bridges
Strength: if properly care for, they can last your entire life
Fit: typically fits better than dentures or bridges
Appearance: they look and feel like your natural teeth
Speech: since they won’t slip out, you do not run the risk of speech impediments
Eating: they stay put so you can eat more easily
Oral Health: other teeth do not have to be altered to fit, like with a bridge, so your teeth are left intact
Flossing: you can floss around your dental implant and other teeth
Cleaner: unlike dentures, there is no need to disinfect or deal with adhesives to keep them in place
