Who wants to think about teeth all day? Alright, well maybe your implant dentist does spend the better part of the day thinking about teeth. But, for the rest of the population, teeth should look nice and work well without imposing on your busy lifestyle.
Dental implants are the tooth replacement solution that can perform quietly and discreetly without requiring that you think about them all day. In fact, most dental implant patients will tell you that they never think about their implants at all.
If dental implants are so great, why are they so forgettable? The truth is that implants are such a close imitation of your natural teeth that they just seem to blend into the bunch. They are shaped the same as a real tooth and connect to the jaw bone via an artificial tooth root. There are no extra parts, clips, or clasps to distract your tongue or interfere with your meals.
Dental implants are the tooth replacement solution that can perform quietly and discreetly without requiring that you think about them all day.
As you move throughout your day, you should not be made aware of any particular tooth in your mouth. Instead, the teeth should work together as a group to accomplish any task, whether it may be chewing or smiling. In this same manner, your dental implant will also be tough to differentiate from the rest of your teeth.
In fact, dental implants require very little in the way of special attention. Dental implants do not:
- Have to be taken in and out
- Have to soak in a cup at night
- Trap food particles underneath
- Require a special brushing or flossing technique
- Limit or restrict your dietary choices
- Compromise the integrity of the neighboring teeth or underlying bone
Once your new teeth are in place, your top priorities will include proper brushing and flossing as well as routine dental examinations. It’s no coincidence, these duties are exactly the same as those required to maintain your natural teeth.
