Are Dental Implants a Perfect Substitute for Natural Teeth?

Tooth loss is common as you age. But when one loses a tooth due to an accident, injury or infection at an early age, that can seriously affect one’s confidence. Missing teeth impacts oral health in general and the ability to eat and communicate properly. There are many tooth restoration options, but dental implants are the most optimal substitute for natural teeth. In our previous blog, we have explained 7 important tips to follow to prolong the life of dental implants in Chandler. Dental implants are designed to last for a lifetime. The implant not only enhances the aesthetic look but also helps in maintaining jawbone density.

Reasons to Opt for Dental Implants in Chandler:

It's always advised to maintain good oral hygiene to protect natural teeth from decay and infection. Brushing two times a day in combination with flossing can prevent problems connected to plaque and food debris. But once your tooth has decayed beyond repair, tooth extraction is advised.

Accidental or traumatic injuries leading to tooth loss is another cause of missing teeth. A dental implant is the most successful and most advised treatment for missing teeth. Dental implants feel and look more natural. They do not require any exceptional care. Routine brushing combined with effective flossing can aid you in perpetuating the best oral hygiene. It will increase the endurance of the implant.

Who Is Qualified To Get Dental Implants in Chandler?

Your Dentist in Chandler analyses and determines if you are qualified for dental implants. Multiple factors dictate your eligibility for dental implants. They are:

  1. Strong jawline density is a factor for someone to qualify for an implant because the implant fuses with the jawbone.
  2. Good oral hygiene, healthy gums and overall health play a crucial role. Someone with a chronic illness, hypertension or diabetes may not be advised to have a dental implant.
  3. If you grind your teeth at night, that can put your implant at risk failing. If you do decide to get an implant, make sure you wear a night guard while sleeping.

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
