Important Facts About Dental Implants

Published on August 12th, 2019

When you receive your dental implants in Lakeview, it’s important to know about them regarding their maintenance and when you need to see your dentist for a follow-up. Continue reading to learn more facts about your dental implants.

 

Almost As Strong As Natural Teeth

Dental implants can give you the biting force you lost years ago when you lost your natural teeth. They are strong because they are made from titanium and can help heal around the bone, making the implant part of your body. The dental implant basically serves as a new tooth root.

 

No Cavities

Dental implants are made from a biodegradable material, which means they do not get cavities. However, we still recommend you brush and floss just like you normally do with your natural teeth. 

 

Health Improvements

Having missing teeth means you are at risk of infection and other serious oral issues because you cannot maintain a healthy diet. With dental implants, you can eat and digest food much like you are able to with natural teeth.

 

Preserving The Jawbone

When you lose teeth, your jawbone will recede and change the shape of your mouth, causing a sunken look and wrinkles. Dental implants will merge with your bone, preserving it and keeping the right shape of your jaw.
