If you are suffering from a tooth that needs to be removed, or already have a gap left behind from tooth loss, it’s important to get it taken care of as soon as you can. If gaps are left unchecked, bacteria and food particles can get wedged in between them, causing plaque buildup, bad breath, and if left untreated, gum disease. Dental implants can save your holiday season by fixing your smile. Here are a few frequently asked questions about dental implants:

Question: How long can dental implants last?
Answer: If properly cared for, implants can last an entire lifetime.

Question: Can implants be customized?
Answer: Yes, each individual implant can be customized based on your needs. This includes size, shape, color, and proper fit.

Question: Do implants affect the surrounding natural teeth?
Answer: They positively impact the surrounding teeth by filling in the void of what would be an empty space left from the pre-existing tooth. Because implants are installed directly into the jawbone, they will not pull on the nearby teeth.

Question: What are some of the other benefits of dental implants?
Answer: Dental implants can keep the jawbone strong. They can also act much like natural teeth and provide stability when eating. When you complete a full set of teeth by replacing any missing ones with implants, you can fill out your face back to its normal appearance. A patient is also much more likely to smile after implants are installed.
