If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may already know about bridges and dentures. These tried and true treatments have served patients well over the years. But for today’s dental patients, we highly recommend dental implants whenever possible. Implants offer many advantages, and we’re excited to provide this service to our Jersey City patients.
Dental implants represent a revolutionary improvement over dentures and bridges. Because a titanium implant functions like a real tooth root, it’s a bit like replacing a crumbling wall instead of just patching it up. Here are four great reasons to choose implant dentistry.
- Convenience: Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants can be cared for just like real teeth. No overnight soaking or special cleaning required.
- Appearance: Dental implants look just like real teeth. And the prosthetic dental crown can be shaped and shaded to seamlessly blend into your smile.
- Function: Dental implants provide structural integrity to your mouth, preventing the jawbone from deteriorating, and reducing the likelihood of periodontal disease.
- Permanence: With proper oral hygiene, your dental implants will last as long as your natural teeth.
Replacing missing teeth is good for your appearance and for your oral health. To learn more about your implant dentistry options, please contact the Practice at Maxwell Place today to schedule an appointment. Dr. Frank DePaola serves patients in Jersey City, New Jersey.
