As you may know, a dental implant is a treatment designed to replace a lost tooth—but do you ever wonder if you’re a good candidate? If you have, there are a few things you should know.

Dental implants are designed to look and feel like a natural tooth. Sadly, if you’re missing a tooth you could have a hard time eating, chewing, or speaking. Fortunately, you can overcome these issues with an implant. Also, the color and look of your teeth will be taken into consideration so your implant can made to match your smile.

Another major advantage of implants is their durability. You see, most restorations will last at least five years before they need to be replaced. However, with proper care, dental implants can last for more than 25 years. In fact, many patients who decide on implants never have to replace them.

If you would like to learn more about implants, we invite you to visit us. We will gladly inspect the health of your mouth and gums to see if you’re a good candidate. If you aren’t a good candidate for implants, we’ll be happy to recommend a different restoration.
