How dental implants from Decatur can restore your smile.
If you are haunted by an incomplete smile because you have lost teeth, there is a solution. If you have a difficult time eating the foods you love because you are missing teeth, there is a solution. The solution is dental implants! Dental implants are the modern, state-of-the-art way to bring back the smile you’ve lost. Dr. Carol Cunningham at Gentle Art of Dentistry in Decatur, IL, wants to introduce you to restoring your smile with dental implants.
If you are missing teeth, there are conventional treatments like bridges, partials, and dentures, but all of these treatments have one thing in common: they may not look or feel as natural as your own teeth. Dental implants are the most natural-looking tooth replacement available. In fact, they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. There are many other reasons why dental implants are the treatment of choice for missing teeth. Consider these important facts about dental implants:
- Dental implants are stable and won’t move around because they are firmly embedded in bone
- Dental implants can help your overall health and are easy to care for because you can brush and floss them just like your natural teeth.
- Dental implants are long-lasting and can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance
- Dental implants can’t decay or stain like natural teeth can, and this makes them much more easy to maintain.
Dental implants are highly successful with a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Dental implants are a conservative treatment because only the implant space is treated, not the teeth around the implant.
Dental implant treatment begins with a simple in-office procedure to place the implant screw. After a healing period, the implant screw is capped with a beautiful implant crown.
