Dental Implant FAQs

Dental implants in Chesterfield or anywhere else in the country provide patients with a convenient solution for missing or damaged teeth. In addition to improving oral hygiene and protecting the jawbone, dental implants will help you look your best, improving your self-image.

But unless you’ve gone to dental school, you probably have some questions about dental implants in Chesterfield. Well, look no further because we’ve got answers to your most frequently asked question about dental implants right here.

How Do Dental Implants Help Improve Your Health?

Generally speaking, when you lose a tooth, the teeth that surround the missing tooth will change position, often causing undesirable spacing between the teeth. This is undesirable aesthetically, but it also creates new areas where plaque and tartar may collect and become difficult to remove. Dental implants eliminate this possibility.

Additionally, since dental implants stimulate your jaw in place of a missing tooth, they keep the bone healthy. Without a dental implant, a missing tooth can result in serious jawbone loss.

 Are Dental Implants Difficult to Care For? 

Unless you find it difficult to practice normal dental hygiene, you likely will have no trouble at all caring for your dental implants. Though you’ll have to be careful when you first have them placed, once you’ve healed, you’ll simply need to brush and floss daily and make your regular visits to the dentist.

What Should I Look for in an Implant Dentist? 

Not all dentists are alike. Different types of dentists have various levels of training, education, and experience. You should ensure that any dentist you work with has placed dental implants in Chesterfield before. Also, make sure that they handle your needs and listen to you carefully. Though this may not reflect their skill in placing implants it will reveal how professional they are. And you should prioritize working with professional dentists.

Why Would I Need Dental Implants?

Not everyone needs dental implants, but they’re very important to have if you need to stop other teeth from shifting, to protect the jawbone, and to maintain the aesthetics of your smile. Generally, you’ll need dental implants if one or more of your teeth have been knocked out, broken, or rotted.  If any of these things have happened to your teeth, dental implants will help ensure that you don’t have any more problematic health issues, so you should speak a dentist soon if you think you need dental implants.
