How Dental Implants Can Give You Back Your Smile
If you are missing any teeth or have any teeth due to disease or injury, you might feel less confident in yourself or your smile. However, there is a way for you to have that smile look brand new. Dental Associates of Easley knows the pain and frustration of missing teeth can be an embarrassing thing. But all that matters is that you have a solution that will give you the smile that lasts a lifetime with our dental implant services.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is comprised of a synthetic root made of durable metal (usually titanium). Another part of the implant is the crown or tooth itself. The “root” is used to infuse itself within the bone so it will give your implant the support it needs to look like and feel like the real thing. You can have a single implant or have multiple amounts of teeth installed (also known as a bridge implant for missing several teeth in a row). Depending on your situation, your Cigna dentist will be able to install a type of implant that will benefit you best and give you a smile that will last you a lifetime.
Why Implants Over Dentures and Bridges?
While regular bridges and dentures have long been solutions for improving your overall smile, they are not affixed to the bone. And they can also slip and move around at any given time, thus making it hard to eat, speak, or smile. This is not the case with implants. They are permanent and are fixed in place. So you don’t have to suffer from the frustration of teeth slipping and sliding around.
What To Do After The Procedure?
Once you have an implant procedure performed, it’s always a great idea to practice daily oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth three times a day and flossing twice a day just like you would with your original teeth. Your implants will last a long time if you take proper care of them.
