Dental implants in Phoenix, AZ are one of the most common tooth replacement options in dentistry.
The strength of a dental implant
Dental implants are thin but sturdy posts implanted in your jawbone. The dental crowns that fit over your implant posts can never get cavities. And if they do chip or crack in the future, these crowns can be easily replaced without disturbing your implant posts.
One of the most beneficial aspects of dental implants is how they help preserve your oral health. Because they are secured to your jawbone, they stimulate the bone to remain viable and not shrink away—a common problem associated with tooth loss. Dental implants also prevent your teeth from shifting toward smile gaps.
Since implants cannot be removed, you never have to worry about them slipping or falling out of your mouth. Given their strength, you can also eat your favorite hard or chewy foods again.
With proper care and maintenance, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant is the best long-term tooth replacement option available today.
