How dental implants from your dentist in Findlay, OH, can rebuild your smile

If you have been living with missing teeth, your smile is missing too. In fact, there is a lot that can be missing when you lose teeth. When your smile is gone, your self-esteem and self-confidence can go with it. You may be having trouble chewing your food, which can impact your digestion and your overall health. Fortunately, here in Findlay, OH, Dr. Joseph E. Touhalisky offers dental implants to rebuild your smile in a permanent fashion, complete with restored functionality.

What dental implants can do for you

In the past, your only choices to replace missing teeth were dental appliances like dentures, partials, and dental bridgework. Now you have another choice, dental implants! These are just a few of the unique benefits of dental implant treatment:

  • Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth because the dental implant crown is made of materials that are light-reflective and look just like natural tooth enamel.
  • Dental implants are completely stable because they are surrounded and embedded in bone, so they will never move around, even with the most vigorous chewing.
  • Dental implants are easy to take care of because you simply brush and floss them just like natural teeth.
  • Dental implants help you conserve bone, which means you will have a firmer jawline and more youthful facial contours.

Dental implants are also the most successful surgical implant. They boast a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. They are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that your bone fuses with. Your body won’t reject dental implants.

Thanks to dental implants, you can replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even an entire arch of missing teeth. They provide a stable framework for a denture, which is snapped in place over the dental implants. This type of denture is known as an implant-supported denture, or overdenture.
