The winter winds are blowing in and the joys of holidays surround us once more. It’s important to remember as you are feasting on ham, turkey, and peppermint sticks, that many foods and drinks can do serious damage to our teeth and gums if we are not careful.

Even if you have already suffered from tooth loss, if your smile is left untreated, your food can still have consequences on your teeth and gums. Avoid oral health holiday surprises by installing dental implants today. Following are some important questions to remember about dental implants:

Question: How long can dental implants last?

Answer: If properly cared for, implants can last an entire lifetime.

Question: Can implants be customized?

Answer: Yes, each individual implant can be customized based on your needs. This includes size, shape, color, and proper fit.

Question: Do implants affect the surrounding natural teeth?

Answer: They positively impact the surrounding teeth by filling in the void of what would be an empty space left from the pre-existing tooth. Because implants are installed directly into the jawbone, they will not pull on the nearby teeth.

Question: What are some of the other benefits of dental implants?

Answer: Dental implants can keep the jawbone strong. They can also act much like natural teeth and provide stability when eating. When you complete a full set of teeth by replacing any missing ones with implants, you can fill out your face back to its normal appearance. A patient is also much more likely to smile after implants are installed.
