They’re one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options in the country, but a lot of people are still apprehensive about dental implants. Many people wonder if the process really works.

We’re happy to offer implants here at Prescott Dental Group because we believe in them and their efficacy. With that in mind, let’s look at some of the reasons that implants really work and improve your smile.

They look real

When you need teeth replaced, crowns are a popular – and well-known – option. However, if you’re missing multiple teeth, or have advanced tooth decay, implants are the better option. They’re anchored to your jaw bone (or right above it, depending on your jaw bone health) then capped with crowns that look just like the rest of your teeth. In fact, the only person who will know the tooth isn’t real is your dentist.

They last a long time

Implants are also very long-lasting. As long as you follow a basic oral health routine (brushing, flossing, and use of mouthwash) then your implants will last as long as you do. Compared to other options – like traditional crowns or bridges – implants are less prone to chips, cracks, or fractures. They’re also far less work to take care of than dentures.

If you need teeth replaced, and think that dental implants could be the answer to your cosmetic smile issues, then contact us today at 928-277-4754 to schedule an appointment.
