Why Dental Implants Are the New Standard of Care in Tooth Replacement

Oral health is an important component of your overall health. In fact, ailments in your mouth can actually cause problems in your body. 

Your mouth is the point of entry to your respiratory and digestive tracts. If your mouth is filled with bacteria, that could cause problems. It’s important to practice good oral hygiene to maintain good overall health.

Missing teeth are actually quite detrimental to your dental health. They can cause your jaw bone to shrink, impair your speech, lead to gum disease, and cause heart disease. If you're pregnant, missing teeth can even lead to premature birth.

Take into account that 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and you can see how this is a real problem. That’s why Dr. Daniel Cho and his team at Life Bloom Dental have compiled this helpful guide to show how dental implants are the new standard of tooth care.

What dental implants are

Dental implants are artificial teeth mounted on metal posts or frames, which are then fused to your jawbone. They’re made to fit securely and won’t move or slip in your mouth. Dental implants are an ideal solution for missing teeth because they’re strong and made to replace your permanent teeth.

There are two specific kinds of dental implants that you can opt for, including:

Dental implants can last a lifetime

Dental implants have an impressively high success rate of up to 98%. It’s important to practice proper oral care to ensure the longevity of your implants. Remember to regularly brush, floss, and rinse your teeth out with mouthwash. It's a good idea to maintain regular dental appointments, too. 

The more you take care of your teeth, the better your overall dental health.
