Dental Implants Many people lose their confidence or self-esteem when their smile is ruined by missing teeth. By not smiling or even laughing, you’re robbing yourself of many health benefits. Both have been proven to improve your physical and mental health by relieving stress and improving your mood. Broken and missing teeth don’t look pretty, which is why it is embarrassing to show them. You don’t have to keep hiding them. Dental implants can help restore your smile and bring back enjoyment into your life. If you’re tired of hiding your smile in pictures, it may be time to talk to us about dental implants. At Dental Horizons, we have the skill and experience What are Implants? Dental implants will restore the natural look and feel of your teeth. They replace the root of missing teeth by inserting a metal – usually titanium – screw into your jawbone. The screw fuses with your bone creating a very strong bond. This secured implant works as the base upon which a cap or crown is placed, which then serves as a substitute tooth that is strong, durable, and looks just like your natural teeth. To speed up the healing process, it is recommended that you have strong and healthy gums and bone before the procedure. The healing process usually takes a couple months. How Implants Can Benefit You Implants are a great option for many patients with missing teeth. They are more permanent than dentures and can be left in your mouth. Implants have the same natural look and feel as your original teeth, and they are secure enough that you can eat and chew normally and also clean and maintain them like the rest of your teeth. It’s time to let your beautiful smile shine and enjoy time with friends and family. Contact us to set up an appointment and let us help you get started on your way to a healthy, beautiful smile.
