The Growing Trend towards Dental Implants

As of late, there is a growing trend towards the use of dental implants to replace missing teeth. With numerous medical and real life benefits to dental implants, this popular long term solution for missing teeth is becoming more and more viable to dental patients.

Unlike semi permanent removable dentures, bridges and partials, permanently affixed dental implants are the only permanent solution to tooth loss replacement. Dental implant recipients love that they don’t have to worry about having their teeth slip, fall out or click out of place. There is little to no discomfort or mouth irritation that is commonly found with other teeth replacement options. As the most natural looking and natural feeling tooth replacement choice, dental implants offer lifestyle options that are not available to denture, partial or bridge wearers.

Dental implants are permanently attached to the jaw bone so they function and perform like natural teeth. Dental implants actually help preserve the jaw bone and eliminate problematic bone loss associated with tooth loss. Eating is not a problem with dental implants, you won’t have to change or alter your eating habits. Denture, bridge and partial wearers deal with food and dietary restrictions.

Dental implants are made to last a lifetime when properly maintained for this reason and many more implants are becoming a more popular option for tooth replacement. Flossing, brushing and regular oral hygiene can be performed like you would with your natural teeth. Implants are done independently of each other, again acting as a natural tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. If you have additional questions or concerns, talk to your dentist about dental implants as a solution for permanent tooth replacement.

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
