Dental implants are an effective solution for replacing missing or severely damaged teeth. When cared for properly, implants can last a lifetime. So, when is the right time to consider getting dental implants? Here are a few scenarios:

When you have severe tooth decay

If you have a tooth that is severely decayed, it may be beyond repair. In this case, a dental implant can be a good option to replace the damaged tooth and restore your smile. Following extraction, the implant surgery process can be quick and painless with Dr. Phan’s cutting-edge technology.

When you’ve lost an entire tooth

Losing a tooth can lead to a variety of issues, including shifting and uneven teeth, jawbone deterioration, a lisp, and changes in the appearance of your face. The remaining teeth can become harder to clean and end up costing more to fix. Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing teeth, and when fixed early enough, can be a simple process that preserves your jawbone and your smile.

When you can no longer wear dentures

Dentures are a common solution for replacing missing teeth, but they are not always comfortable or effective. If you are struggling with dentures and they are causing problems with eating or speaking, dental implants may be a better option for you.

When you have jawbone deterioration

Jawbone deterioration can lead to an altered facial appearance, giving you a sunken look.
Unlike dentures, dental implants prevent jawbone loss after losing teeth. A titanium implant stimulates the bone, keeping your jaw strong and healthy.
