Dental Implants: Smart Investment For Your Smile

You deserve the best when it comes to your oral health. You don’t want some mediocre solution that causes more problems than it actually fixes. Tooth loss can’t be ignored. Once a tooth is lost, we recommend you schedule a consultation to figure out the best solution. Nowadays, many patients are making a smart investment by getting a dental implant to replace a tooth. The materials and technology offer the best benefits. If you get a dental implant in Hasbrouck Heights, here is what you can look forward to after the procedure.dental implants
 
Look for permanence
You don’t want a dental prosthesis to be short lived. Dental implants undergo a process called osseointegration in which the bone cells grow around the implant. The material they typically use is titanium because it is durable and biocompatible. And the implants unique screw-like design allows the jawbone to secure itself into those tiny ridges, so it won’t budge—that’s why it is permanent.
 
Protect against plaque bacteria
Unless you got your tooth knocked out, you probably lost it to tooth decay. It’s safe to assume you don’t want to lose another to plaque bacteria. One of the best benefits of a dental implant is that it isn’t affected by decay. However, it can still accumulate around the synthetic crown, so you need to make sure to brush and floss on a daily basis.
 
Improve chewing function
Other restorative devices are less sturdy compared to dental implants because they aren’t osseointegrated into the jawbone. With dental implants, Hasbrouck residents can enjoy expanding their dietary choices without worrying about a dental device coming loose in the mouth.
