If you're living with a missing tooth, dental implants are one of the best solutions offered by modern dentistry. Not only do they replace your tooth, but they also protect your oral health. Here are some of the main reasons our patients are choosing dental implants in Middletown, NJ.
Dental Implants Offer a Natural Look and Feel
A dental implant looks and functions just like your natural tooth. The secret behind their success is that they replace both your root and your tooth. A titanium post placed into your jawbone replaces your root. It naturally fuses with your bone because titanium is biocompatible. Your new crown is made of high-quality porcelain, which is customized to blend flawlessly with your smile.
Dental Implants Protect Your Oral Health
Because the titanium post takes the place of your root in your bone, it also works to keep your bone stimulated and healthy as your root once did. This means there is no deterioration of your bone as there would be without your root.
Your new crown keeps your neighboring teeth from shifting into the open space, which maintains the integrity of your dental bite.
Dental Implants Provide Exceptional Longevity
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option with the potential to last for your lifetime. All other options such as a bridge or denture will need to be replaced down the road. With excellent home care and regular dental checkups, your implants can go the distance.
Dental Implants are a Wise Long-Term Investment
Although implants may require more cost up front than other replacement options, because of their excellent longevity, they are more cost-effective long-term, making them a better investment for your oral health.
