Why Should I Get Dental Implants? Dental implants are the best long-term solution to tooth loss.

If you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth, you probably have checked into tooth replacement. You’ve heard the stories about dentures that don’t fit, and removable partials that are uncomfortable. You want a better solution to tooth loss. Now, there is a much more Dental Implantspermanent, natural alternative called dental implants. Dr. Jay Shartzer of Fort Myers, Florida, is your go-to specialist for the best in implant dentistry.

In addition to the long-term durability of dental implants, there are many other benefits including:

  • Increased confidence when you talk, because you know your teeth won’t move the way they can with partials and dentures
  • Better biting and chewing ability than dentures and partials
  • Much more convenience, because you don’t have to take your teeth in and out to clean them
  • A more youthful face, because implants help to maintain the bone in your jaw

If you are worried about the success of dental implants, don’t be! The success rate of dental implants is over 95 percent, the greatest success of any surgical implant. That’s because dental implants are made of titanium, which is “biocompatible” meaning your body won’t reject it. Titanium is very strong, but also gentle to your tissue and bone.

The implant looks like a screw, and it is “implanted” in the jawbone. It becomes the missing “root” of your tooth. After a healing period, the implant is capped with a beautiful porcelain crown. The end result is a durable, natural-looking substitute for your missing tooth.

In the world of cosmetic dentistry, implants are the perfect replacement for missing teeth because they are the closest to your natural teeth, giving you a completely natural, beautiful smile. We all know how important a nice smile is to your self-esteem!
