Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Is your smile suffering from a missing tooth? If so, you might be wondering what your options are. Well, today we will give you some information about dental implants to help in your decision for smile restoration.

If you’re new to dental implants, you may be expecting the worst. So to help put your mind at ease, we’ll tell you just what they are. Dental implants are metal frames that are surgically placed into your jawbone, which is located just below the gum line. Once the frame is in place and your mouth has healed, your dentist will mount replacement tooth onto the frame.

Now, you may like knowing that dental implants will give you the look and feel of the rest of your natural teeth. Implants are made to give you the stability and strength to withstand the functions of other teeth.

You may want to also know that dental implants have options, two in fact. These implants are called endosteal and subperiosteal, each providing different placement options for your mouth. You can discuss with your dentist on which option will work best for your mouth.

Dental implants are for anyone missing one or all of their teeth, young or old. Typically when the jaw stops growing, around the age of 16 for girls and 18 for boys, is when dental implants can be surgically placed.
