If you are missing any of your teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. A dental implant is an available option for replacing your teeth, and our experienced staff at Walden Dentistry can help determine if this procedure is the right one for your particular situation.
While some patients may choose other replacement procedures such as a bridge or dentures, we may suggest that dental implants are a better choice. While not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, a majority of people qualify; this is often why implants are often recommended over other options. A consultation and exam in our office can help us determine what the best course of action is for your circumstances.
Improves Your Smile
There are many reasons why you may be missing teeth, whether it is from physical impact, periodontal disease, or tooth decay. Tooth loss causes gaps in your mouth, which can significantly change your smile. Over time, other teeth may shift in your jaw, causing crookedness or even loss of additional teeth. Having dental implants will fill in gaps and give you a natural-looking smile again, which will help you regain confidence in your smile.
Saves Bone Structure
Dental implants provide more than just an aesthetic benefit. When you are missing a tooth, the jaw can actually start to shrink and deteriorate, which can impact the structure of your face and cause the loss of other teeth. Implants will help to stimulate the bone and prevent this harmful bone loss.
Affordable Replacement Option
Dental implant cost will vary based on a number of factors such as the number of teeth being replaced, the type of method being performed, and if other procedures need to be done in conjunction. However, implants should last a lifetime, and they can prevent other issues from occurring later on. Our office also provides financing options to help you afford what you need.
