When a person loses a tooth, it is best to fill the spot with something else. Otherwise, it might cause the opposing tooth to drop or other teeth to shift, which can increase the risk of abscesses or interfere with the functioning of the teeth in question. One potential option is to make use of Dental Implant Services in Ypsilanti MI. There are a number of benefits to dental implants.
These implants, once topped with a replacement tooth, look and feel similar to regular teeth, so nobody will know that the tooth was ever lost. They even fuse to the bone, making them permanent. This can help people to feel better about themselves as they’ll know they have a nicer looking smile. The dentist typically uses a replacement tooth to top the implant that is similar in color to the rest of the teeth so it won’t stand out. Just be careful about eating and drinking foods that stain, as teeth whitening treatments don’t work on dental implants, crowns, or tooth-colored fillings.
Easy Use and Care
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants can be cleaned just like regular teeth, with brushing, flossing, and regular cleanings at the dentist’s office, making them easy to care for. They also stay in place so they let people eat everything they’d like without worries about dentures moving around and causing problems with chewing. There’s no need to worry about them falling out or having to use adhesive to get them to stay in place. These implants are very durable, and when they are taken care of properly, they won’t need to be replaced in the future.
No Speech Issues
Nobody wants to have problems being understood when they talk, but some people find that, with dentures, their teeth move around and make it harder to speak clearly. Taking advantage of dental implant services in Ypsilanti MI will mean that this won’t be a problem. The implants are permanently in place, so they make clear speech no problem.
