If you have lost a tooth, you might experience some minor difficulties like not being able to chew or speak like you used to. You might be a little embarrassed by the gap in your smile. Also, you may be aware that missing teeth can cause bone loss or deterioration in your jaw.
If you feel that it’s time to get rid of the empty space, talk to Apollo Dental Center. We can help you decide if you’re a good candidate for dental implants and if they are the best choice for your oral health.
Weigh the Pros and Cons
Dental implants can be a great option for replacing teeth. They look and function just like regular teeth do, so you’ll be able to speak, eat, and smile normally. You won’t have to deal with any extra care, like you would for dentures—you’ll just brush the implants when you brush your other teeth. Implants are convenient, long lasting, and comfortable.
However, dental implants are not right for all patients. If your jawbone is weak, it will not be able to hold the implant, and it could be dangerous to try to insert it.
Let us help you. The expert dentists at Apollo Dental Center can examine your mouth and jaw to determine if dental implants are a good idea for you. With our advice, you can proceed safely.
