Dental implants are the best way to securely fit a replacement tooth in your mouth. Dental implants can be used in patients who are missing one or more teeth. There are several reasons why we recommend dental implants to some of our patients here at the office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS.

Why You May Want Dental Implants

Here are a few reasons you may want to choose dental implants:

  • Long-Lasting – When you take good care of your dental implants, they can last your entire lifetime. Typically, dental implants do not need to be replaced like dentures or bridges may.
  • Prevent Bone Loss – Dental implants are fused into your jaw bone, which helps to prevent your bone from deteriorating. This is the only option that helps to prevent bone loss when you are missing teeth.
  • Easy Care – Dental implants are very easy to care for. There is no added care needed to keep them in good condition. You will just need to keep up on your normal brushing and flossing.
  • Safe – Dental implants are safe for your teeth. Your teeth won’t get damaged or change with dental implants.

If you are missing teeth or know you need to have teeth removed, we highly recommend dental implants. Due to the many fantastic benefits, we do feel this option is the best choice for many patients.
