There are different ways to replace teeth including getting Amesbury MA dental implants. Teeth can also be replaced with fixed or removable bridges or dentures. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. However, dental implants do have their pros and cons. A great benefit of dental implants is that they are just like permanent teeth. And, if well taken care of with regular brushing of flossing and with regular dental cleanings, there is no reason why they should not last lifetime. However, there are some cons to getting dental implants. To begin with, the dental implant process can be lengthy. After the dental implant root is surgically placed into your jawbone, there is a healing period that can take up to six months. If a patient is getting a fixed or removable bridge instead, there is no need for oral surgery. Also, the process is much shorter with it only taking a few office visits for the patient to get their replacement teeth. Since the entire dental implant process is longer, and oral surgery is involved, the process can be more costly than getting a dental bridge or dentures. However, once a patient has dental implants, they can eat anything they want with total confidence. Patients with dental implants never need to worry that the dental implants will hurt, or shift, or cause embarrassment or discomfort in any way. Also, dental implants never need to be removed for cleaning; they permanently stay in your mouth and act just like regular teeth. Finally, dental implant roots will help your jawbone stay healthy and keep it from atrophying, which means that you will not lose your youthful facial appearance due to tooth loss.
