If you’re able to answer any of these questions, you may benefit from dental implants. Here are some explanations:

  1. Dental implants are perfect for replacing single missing teeth. The implant serves as the root of your tooth and is planted into your bone. After your bone grows around the replacement root post, Dr. Villani will attach a crown or replacement tooth.
  2. Dentures, bridges, and implants can all make your smile complete again.
  3. You need all your teeth to help chew food and articulate sounds. Missing teeth can cause you to develop eating or speaking difficulties. Furthermore, your adjacent teeth can shift into the open space left by a missing tooth, causing pain and misalignment. Missing teeth also make your smile look less attractive, so restoring your mouth can improve both your confidence and attitude.
  4. Dental implants are completely comfortable and stable. They will hold up through everyday wear and tear and you won’t have to worry about them falling out. Also, implants do not affect your surrounding teeth or remove any natural tooth structure.

Sturdy dental implants can restore full function to your mouth.
