When you take a look at your smile in the mirror, are you happy with your teeth? If not, then dental implants could help you make your smile beautiful again. By inserting a fixture, a abutment and a crown, Dr. Mortensen can replace those unattractive missing or damaged teeth and restore the function of your bite.
Dental implants are also a top dentist choice for tooth replacement because they are durable, strong, permanent and can correct many oral health problems. Dr. Mortensen and his wonderful staff can’t wait to help you get the smile you have always dreamed about with dental implants.
Dental hygiene is tough enough without adding extra steps to your routine. Dentures need to be meticulously cleaned (along with your own natural teeth), and even with extra steps they can still smell. Bridges can trap food and bacteria and need to be regularly monitored for movement or damage surrounding teeth and gums. Dental implants stand out from the other options because they need no special care and can be brushed and flossed just like your other teeth.
Jaw muscles need to be used regularly used to stay functional. Missing or damaged teeth can make it difficult to chew, which can limit or reduce healthy jaw function. Dental implants fill empty spaces left by missing teeth and allow patients to smile, eat and speak normally. On the other hand, dentures can impact speech, make chewing difficult and need to be replaced every 5-10 years. Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth, giving you back the freedom to eat and smile normally.
Spaces left by missing teeth can trap food and bacteria. Over time, the increased presence of this bacteria can allow acids to erode your enamel and cause tooth decay. Patients with one or more empty spaces from missing teeth also have an increased risk of infection and gum disease. Dental implants offer an excellent alternative by filling the gaps and restoring healthy bite strength. And because you can continue your normal dental hygiene routine, there is less chance of patients developing additional oral health problems.
Forget about tooth replacement options that require constant attention, lots of maintenance and only offer discomfort in return. Dental implants are attached directly to your jawbone and do not slip, pinch or move. Say goodbye to messy creams, cleaners and adhesives. When cared for properly, dental implants can offer a gorgeous smile that lasts a lifetime.
