When you have a missing tooth in your mouth, it compromises the way you smile. There are multiple dental procedures you could choose to repair your smile, but one of the most long-lasting and efficient of them all happens to be dental implants. These permanent fixtures not only help restore your teeth and make them more natural-looking, but it also helps to restore complete functionality which is something that benefits you in the long run. If you are wondering how these implants work and what they could potentially do for you, the experts at Ephrata Family Dentistry are here to help answer all of your questions!
One of the most effective things about a dental implant is that they fit perfectly into the gap and are customized according to your teeth. Our professionals take great care to ensure that the implant is the same shade as your teeth and it does not look different from any of the other teeth in your mouth. The implant is created based on a mold and it will replicate your natural teeth so that it looks like a complete set. The best part about an implant is that it is fitted permanently into your mouth and once it's put inside you don't have to worry about it at all. It will not take you a long time to get used to these implants and once you do, it will feel like a natural tooth.
Unlike other dental fixtures (dentures, bridges) that make you feel uncomfortable every time you take a bite into your favorite food, you don't have to worry about an implant. The best part about an implant is that it goes right into your gums and this keeps it secure even when you eat sticky or hard food items. These implants are comfortable, and they do not cause any sort of pain or discomfort once you’ve fully recovered, making it easy for you to use it to its full functionality. Once you have an implant fitted into your mouth you don't need to worry about replacing it for a long time because these dental implants are designed to last long.
Apart from the fact that a dental implant matches your tooth color, they look natural because they have an enamel-like shine. This makes it look like a natural tooth and unless you tell somebody that they are dental implants they will not figure it out themselves. Good quality dental implants are designed in a way that it blends in with the rest of your teeth so when you smile you have a perfect smile that is aesthetically and cosmetically appealing.
