Dr. Freyman has placed countless dental implants, ensuring that patients get gorgeous false teeth that look just like the real thing. Contemplating getting dental implants? Here’s what you should know,
Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Are you looking for a tooth replacement option that you will have for many years to come with minimal replacement needs? If so, then dental implants may be the best option for you. This false tooth replaces the entire tooth from the roots to the crown and is made from durable material that can last decades.
The implant itself is a small titanium post that acts just like tooth roots (even though it doesn’t look like real tooth roots) and is placed directly into the jawbone. With good oral care, the implant itself may never need to be replaced. We’ll only need to replace the dental crown every 10-15 years, which is an easy process.
You Need Good Hygiene
One of the many benefits of implants is that you don’t need to practice any kind of unique dental care to maintain implants. They don’t require special products to keep them clean. Simply treat them like you would your natural teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing daily and this should remove plaque and food from around your implant to keep them healthy.
So, while you won’t need to remove your implant and soak them overnight in a special solution it’s still important that you practice good hygiene with your new tooth to keep plaque and tartar at bay.
Support Your Current Set of False Teeth
Even if you just got your complete set of dentures this doesn’t mean that you can’t consider dental implants now or in the future. Dental implants are designed to replace anywhere from one to all of your teeth and can even be used to anchor your dentures into place.
If you find that your false teeth are moving or shifting around a little more than you would like while talking or chewing, getting dental implants from our Longwood, FL, dental team can prevent this common issue from happening.
