Why Dental Implants Are the Best Tooth Replacement Option

Dental implants in Northborough, MA address the health and aesthetics of your smile. Additionally, they are most similar to natural teeth—both in function and appearance. And dental implants do not require added steps to your oral care routine!

Are Dental Implants as Good as the Natural Tooth?

Nothing can take the place of your natural teeth, but dental implants come close.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root implanted in your jaw. After this tooth root bonds or fuses with your jawbone, we top it with a replacement tooth. We can also talk to you about implant-supported prosthetics if you have multiple missing teeth.

Are Dental Implants a Permanent Solution for Tooth Loss?

Dental implants are considered a permanent solution to missing teeth because of their longevity and complete anatomy restoration—tooth and root. So even if you require a new tooth crown in the future, your dental implant should still be viable.

Of course, it’s essential to take care of your implant, which is the same as taking care of your natural teeth:

  • Brush
  • Floss
  • Visit the dentist

What Happens if You Don’t Get Dental Implants?

Of course, there are other tooth replacement options out there, but dental implants are the only choice that addresses jawbone health.

Without a tooth root, your jawbone deteriorates. The result can be an aged or sagging appearance around the chin and lower cheeks.

The dental implant is the only tooth replacement option that comes with a restoring tooth root. So, going with another option—like a dental bridge—will not address your jawbone health.
