More and more people today are interested in dental options that can provide two things. They want both good functionality and a great look. Dental work is a cosmetic thing in this day and age, but when people have dental needs, they must ensure that the treatment is safe and effective, too. This is where dental implants come in. Dental implant aesthetics have gotten much better over the last few years. Beyond that, implant treatment has gotten easier, safer and much less expensive. This is why so many people are choosing it as their primary option today when they lose teeth.
In the past, people who lost a number of important teeth had to choose between a few unenviable options. They could choose to go without a replacement tooth at all, leaving a hole in their mouth that could lead to other health problems down the road. If they lost enough teeth, they could go for dentures, an option that is less than ideal from an aesthetics perspective. Some opted for dental implant surgery, but the process was less than simple in the old days. All of that has changed recently.
Today’s dental implant procedures ensure that a small hole is drilled directly into the bone, going through the gum. Dental implants are then screwed in. A clean looking fake tooth is placed on top of the screw. To make these fake teeth look even better, today’s cosmetic dentists have designed implants that match the color and texture of the patient’s existing teeth. Before you sign up for dental implant treatment, you will be asked to match your tooth color to that of the implant. It is in this process that many people are finding favor. The results are drastically better than they have been in the past.
The prices for dental implant surgery are also better than they have been in the past. Dental implant surgery used to be prohibitively expensive, making it a good option only for those people with mounds of disposable income. This is no longer the case. While it is still somewhat pricey, it is no longer a luxury procedure. Average people can afford dental implants today, allowing them to look their best and perform at the top of their game in their personal and professional lives. It’s one of the top reasons dental implants have taken off in popularity.
