Are They Right for You?
There are many reasons people need to get dental implants. If you have missing teeth, want to improve your speech, don’t want to wear dentures, and have a good bone structure to support the implants, they may be a good choice for you.
Some people choose to get dental implants instead of dentures. This is a great alternative since dentures can often slip and need to be frequently resized, whereas dental implants are attached to posts on your jaw. To get implants, you need to have healthy oral tissue and no issues that may affect how the bone heals during surgery.
Typically, the healing process takes several months. Your dentist will follow you during the process to make sure your gums are healing correctly.
