You and your family are important to us at Mayfair Family Dentistry, located on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA. Dental implants may seem intimidating at first, but they are actually a great solution for many dental issues, such as extracted or missing teeth. We would love to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have about dental implants.
If you have had a tooth extracted or you have a missing tooth, you may be in need of a dental implant. Dental implants offer an appealing solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are often used instead of alternatives, such as dental bridges which require alterations to surrounding teeth in order to fit. Dental implants are colored to match the shade of surrounding teeth, so they offer an appealing natural aesthetic. In most cases, dental implants are undetectable once they are installed. Dental implants offer a great combination of convenience and appearance.
There are many different benefits of dental implants. First, they provide you with a natural looking smile. It is difficult to feel confident with your smile when you are missing one or more teeth. Dental implants can fill those empty spaces with what looks like your natural teeth. Dental implants also affect how your mouth functions. The mouth was meant to operate with all teeth intact. This means that if you are missing one or more adult teeth, then you may have difficulty eating, chewing, biting, and speaking. The healing process for implant restoration takes approximately 3-6 months; however, you are left with a permanent solution to your dental issue. Dental implants, when good oral hygiene is maintained, and regular dental check-ups are attended, are designed to last a person a lifetime.
Do you have more questions about whether implant restoration is right for you? Contact us today at Mayfair Family Dentistry to schedule an appointment. We understand that each patient is unique and we are willing to work with you to find a solution to your dental problems that works with your lifestyle.
