What would life be like if you could enjoy a meal at your favorite restaurant again? Eating the foods you normally enjoy becomes a challenge when you’re missing one or more of your teeth. Not only is it difficult to properly chew your food, it can also be embarrassing. You may feel self-conscious about eating, smiling and talking in front of other people, which takes its toll on your confidence. Dental implants may be the option you’ve been looking for that will replace your tooth and restore your smile. Here are the many advantages of dental implants in Washington, DC.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are the best replacement for one or more missing teeth that dentistry has to offer. The secret behind their success lies in the fact that they replace both your root and your tooth. Your root is replaced with a titanium post that is biocompatible and integrates with your bone over time. This creates a stable foundation for your new tooth, which is made of a high quality porcelain crown.
Your dentist will custom design your crown to match your existing teeth so that it naturally complements your smile. Your implant mimics your natural tooth, so you’ll be able to talk, eat, brush, and floss just as you normally would. You’ll be able to chew and enjoy all the foods you were used to, and best of all, your confidence will be restored because no one will ever know you were missing a tooth.
Am I a Candidate For Dental Implants?
Dental implants do require enough healthy bone structure to support them and that the patient is in good overall health. If you’re considering dental implants as an option for restoring your tooth, the first place to start is a consultation with your dental provider. With a thorough exam and some x-rays, your dentist will be able to let you know if dental implants are the right option for you. If dental implants are not in your future, your dentist can discuss other options for replacing your tooth such as a dental bridge or partial.
