Dr. Benjamin Stevens in Greenwood, IN can help restore that smile no matter what the reason for the tooth loss. There are treatments available, including dental implants, to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Having dental implants is similar to having your own teeth. Basically, it is just a metal implant that is surgically placed in the jawbone to act as the base for the artificial tooth’s replacing the tooth root. The crown, the artificial tooth, is then attached to the implant. Once completed and healed, it looks and feels like a regular tooth. You can eat and smile the same way as you would with your natural teeth.

How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?

The biggest advantage to dental implants is that they act and look like your natural teeth. You even brush and floss them as you would with your natural teeth. Dentures, on the other hand, must be removed for cleaning. Since implants are permanent, there is no need to remove them for cleaning.  Unless you told someone, no one would even know you had them.

Another advantage to implants is that it can improve your smile. When a permanent tooth is lost, over time the jawbone can cause permanent harm to your mouth. It changes the shape of your jawbone and reduces the structural integrity of your mouth. By having implants, you can maintain your jawbone and your smile.
