Many Patients Prefer Dental Implants
Whether you’ve experienced tooth loss due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or a traumatic injury, replacing missing teeth is more than just a cosmetic concern. Missing teeth can create bigger dental and health issues if ignored for too long. While you have many restorative dental options available, many patients at BayView Dental prefer dental implants over the alternatives. Dental implants are crafted metallic tooth roots that are inserted directly into your jawbone. Once in place, a dental crown is attached to the metallic root, which acts as the replacement tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Due to their many benefits, dental implants have seen a recent surge in popularity over other restorative dental treatments. Advantages of dental implants include:
Because they’re fused directly to your jawbone, dental implants look, feel, and function like your teeth for a more natural appearance. They also help prevent facial sagging caused by bone and tooth loss for a more youthful appearance.
When compared to removable dentures or bridges, many patients prefer dental implants because they allow for a more comfortable, natural fit.
Improved Oral Health
By eliminating the gaps left by missing teeth, dental implants help you improve your overall oral hygiene. They also leave your remaining natural teeth intact because they are fitted to the specific gaps in your mouth.
Say goodbye to denture adhesives and dietary restrictions required by dentures. You can still eat your favorite foods, chewing and speaking without fear of an embarrassing denture slippage in public.
Are Dental Implants Right for You? Schedule a Consultation Today!
Dental implants enjoy a high success rate, though they may not be suitable for everyone. You’ll need to have healthy teeth and gums, as well as good oral hygiene habits to be considered a good candidate for dental implants. Patients who are heavy smokers or who have a history of heart disease or diabetes may not be able to benefit from dental implants.
To determine your eligibility, please call us today to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists at BayView Dental. We’d also be happy to answer your questions regarding the cost of dental implants and whether or not they’re covered under your current medical or dental insurance.
