Dental Implants – The Myth Busters!

· Tips & Advice · No Comments

Many people feel self-conscious about missing teeth or problems with their mouth. Fear and uncertainty can keep you from seeking the dental care you need.

Dental implants allow you to keep a beautiful smile and eat foods that you may not be able to enjoy without healthy teeth. If you’ve been told you’re a candidate for dental implants but are still hesitant, it may be due to several common myths about the procedure and the implants. Don’t let bad information prevent you from having a healthy mouth, full quality of life, and a nice smile.

What are Dental Implants?

First of all, a dental implant is a manufactured artificial tooth that is surgically placed into your gum and jaw providing a secure and strong foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implants allow users to enjoy the foods they love and can secure loose-fitting dentures. The dental implants can also be a great alternative to a bridge as it restores gaps without surrendering any of your neighbouring teeth.
