Signs You Need A Dental Implant

With a success rate over 95%, the number of people turning to dental implants for both functional and aesthetic reasons continues to increase. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, approximately 3 million people in the United States have dental implants and that number grows by 500,000 annually. We are proud to be the provider of some of the best dental implants in Northfield and the surrounding cities.

This restorative dentistry service is the real deal: the implants look and function just like your natural teeth. Read on to see signs that a dental implant is the right procedure for you.

  • You have a severely cracked or broken tooth

When a tooth is broken beyond the point of repair, it might be a sign that you need a dental crown or dental implant. If you’re questioning the severity of the crack or break, schedule an appointment with us.

  • You’re missing at least one natural tooth

It’s not fun to walk around with missing teeth and it can severely damage your confidence. A dental implant can give you back the comfort, functionality and confidence you deserve.

  • Loose-fitting partials or dentures

Dealing with loose partials or loose dentures on a daily basis can make you self-conscious. Dental implants will assure that you’re not constantly worrying about your dentures falling out in public.

  • You’re experiencing jawbone loss

Yes, dental implants can help with the degradation of jaw bones. The titanium in the implant bonds to the jawbone socket. This process is called osseointegration and it stimulates jaw bone growth just as a natural tooth would. This also helps with the sunken-in appearance that some denture-wearers experience, as this occurs due to bone loss.

  • Poorly functioning teeth

If something has been off when you chew or bite, this could be the sign of an infected tooth that could be replaced by an implant.
