One of the biggest responsibilities that your mouth has is chewing your food. Ironically, this is also the one function our mouths perform that we give little or no thought to. That is, unless you have a problem with your mouth that is making it hard to chew your food. That gets your attention really quickly. The other downside to having a problem chewing is that you may not be totally sure what to do about it. Your friends at Hellertown Dental Group are here for you when you need to figure out how to fix the problem that is affecting your ability to eat.
Oftentimes, difficulty chewing is caused by a missing tooth. For many people, if the tooth that is missing doesn’t affect the look of their smile, they don’t give it much thought. There are also those who think the only option for replacing a missing tooth is an ill-fitting denture or bridgework that will eventually need replacing. What if I told you that Hellertown Dental Group can fix your mouth, and give you a replacement that was literally just like your original tooth? You would be able to eat what you want, when you want, and have your smile be just as awesome as it was before. If that interests you, then welcome to the world of dental implants.
Benefits Of Dental Implants
A dental implant is a replacement tooth root that bonds with your jawbone. This gives the replacement tooth (crown) a sturdy base that is just as secure as your natural tooth root.
- Look – The appearance of a dental implant is unsurpassed in how nicely it integrates into your smile. With the implant acting just like your original tooth root, your new tooth will blend right into your smile.
- Feel – The integration with the bone is the critical part of the stability that you’ll enjoy with dental implants from Hellertown Dental Group. There will be no shifting or movement. The implant also helps preserve the bone structure of your jaw.
- Function – Your new tooth will be able to handle everything your original tooth did, and possibly more. With proper care, your dental implant could last you for the rest of your life. You will not have to avoid the foods you love, and cleaning your teeth will be just like cleaning your original teeth. Brush, floss, use fluoride, and get regular exams and cleanings from Hellertown Dental Group, and your implant will last a very long time.
