One of the biggest trends in teeth replacement today is getting dental implants. People are now realizing that a surgical implant in your mouth can be a better option than old-fashioned or ill-fitting dentures. Secure and more natural-looking than other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants may be your best choice. Those who experience TMJ in Palm Harbor, FL can especially take advantage of some of the benefits that a dental implant may offer. Dr. Dan Knellinger, a general dentist, can help you make the right choice when it comes to restoring the health and beauty of your mouth.
Stop Living With Pain in Your Mouth
No matter how good your dentures are, there is still a possibility of experiencing discomfort while eating. Even with the best fitting set of dentures, it is still not as precise as a dental implant can be. If you avoid eating certain things with your dentures because of pain or problems with getting food stuck between them, you may want to start thinking about a dental implant consultation.
Feel Confident in Pictures Again
If you have had a missing tooth for a long time, and you have avoided smiling in pictures, dental implants may be right for you. You can fix your gap tooth smile and instantly erase years of age away from your look. Most importantly, you never have to worry about taking a dental implant out each night because it is permanent. During a dental implant surgery, your surgeon opens up your gums and securely attaches the metal post of the implant. Because it is attached to the bone under your gums, you get a strong and natural fit. The surgery is simple with a short recovery time. The final result may be able to give your mouth its best look ever.
