After years of not being in a position to have regular dental work, it’s finally possible to see a professional. Unfortunately, the general condition of the teeth means they will need to be extracted. While going with a partial denture or a bridge is an option, the dentist has confirmed that the patient is a good candidate for dental Implants in Summit NJ. Here are a few of the reasons why giving this solution serious consideration is a good idea.
Implants Stay in Place
With other solutions, there is always the possibility of slippage. Even with a bridge that is adhered to the teeth on each side, it is not out of the question for the device to work loose. By contrast, Implants in Summit NJ occupy the same space recently vacated by the natural teeth. Since they are set directly into the gum, they are going nowhere. People who don’t like the idea of using adhesives or checking to see if a bridge is still anchored properly will find that implants are a great option.
A Natural Look
Even the highest quality dental bridge still looks like a dental bridge. At first glance, there is nothing wrong with that. A second look is usually enough to notice the subtle differences between the bridge and the real teeth. That is not the case with dental implants.
The caps created for the implants are shaped just like the real thing. Once they are attached to the implant proper, it will be impossible to tell the difference. Between the detail to the shape and the fact that the implant is tinted to match the exact shade of the real teeth, everyone will assume the patient has a set of perfectly healthy teeth.
There are plenty of other reasons to consider dental implants. Contact the team at Westfield Oral Surgery today and arrange for an examination. If the dental professional confirms that implants are an option, find out more about what to expect. After that discussion, the patient is likely to decide to settle for any other solution would be a waste of time and money.
