A failing or missing tooth takes a toll, not only your daily life but also your oral health. In your daily life, you may find eating and chewing more difficult, and you may also feel self-conscious about your smile. But behind the scenes, your missing tooth could be causing your bone to deteriorate and your healthy teeth to shift. Dental implants in Gaithersburg may be the solution you need and here are some of the reasons our dentists at Lakeforest Dental Associates recommend them.

Implants Look and Feel Like Natural Teeth

Dental implants are the tooth replacement option that most closely mimics your natural tooth. Your new tooth is made of ceramic porcelain that is blended to match your existing teeth and complete your smile in a natural way. Your new tooth will also provide all the function you had before your tooth loss such as eating, chewing, talking, and smiling.

Implants Protect Your Oral Health

A dental implant protects your bone from deteriorating since it replaces your root. The titanium post is biocompatible so it can integrate with your bone, and it keeps your bone stimulated while providing a foundation for your new tooth. Replacing your tooth prevents your remaining teeth from shifting and ensures proper alignment for your bite.

Implants Provide Great Longevity

Dental implants cost more up front than other tooth replacement options; however, when you look at the long-term picture they are actually more cost-effective, and here's why. Implants can potentially last a lifetime with proper home care and regular dental checkups. No other option can offer that benefit and you will have to look at replacing a bridge, partial, or denture down the road.
