Dr. David Wilson, an implant dentist at the Center for Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Owensboro has years of experience preparing and placing dental implants with a high success rate.
What is a Dental Implant?Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth by embedding an anchor in the jawbone that acts as a foundation for artificial replacement teeth. The concept may sound intimidating, but the procedure and results are straightforward and valuable to the patients overall oral health over time.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Patients who choose dental implants benefit from natural-looking replacement teeth that require little maintenance and upkeep. In fact, caring for a dental implant isn’t much different than caring for your other teeth.
There are other benefits of dental implants, as well. One important aspect of dental implants is that they preserve the bone structure of the jaw. When teeth are missing, the jawbone can eventually deteriorate. Dental implants prevent this resorption from happening.
Unsurprisingly, for this reason dental implants often reduce likelihood of needing restoration on surrounding teeth. Finally, dental implants are long lasting. Traditional restorations such as bridges and crowns require replacement that will take additional preparation. Dental implants don’t require as much dental work for upkeep and replacing a worn restoration does not involve additional tooth prep. Dental implants value increases with longevity!
