Whether you live in Gilbert or elsewhere, you most likely want to have an attractive smile. Today, you can have a perfect smile with dental implants rather than wearing dentures or a dental bridge. First, you should visit our dentist to learn more about the different types of dental implants that are available today. While many patients want to have individual dental implants with a full-size crown on each post, it is possible to have multiple dental implants on only one metal support that is attached to a plastic device. Our dentist will help you decide what type of implant is best for your mouth based on several factors such as having enough alveolar bones in your gums or having healthy gum tissue.
Whatever type of dental implants that you choose, you will enjoy the benefits of having teeth that remain in place. This makes it easier for you to talk without experiencing the slippage that occurs with dentures. While chewing food, you are less likely to have problems from food debris getting stuck under a dental appliance. This can lead to having fresher breath and healthier gum tissue. Dental implants can improve your self-confidence while you are at work or when you are socializing. You won’t need to cope with any embarrassing clicking noises that often occur when you wear dentures.
If you have natural teeth in your mouth, then the dental implants can keep these teeth from shifting in your gums, preventing malocclusions. You will have strong bones in your mouth from having dental implants because your alveolar bones grow around the posts.
While it can feel difficult to care for dentures or dental bridges, it is easy to brush and floss your dental implants. Our dentist in Gilbert can recommend toothpaste that won’t discolor the implants, and you can use traditional dental floss to clean between the dental crowns. There are also specialized interdental brushes that you can use to clean the crowns to prevent gingivitis.
