When considering the best way to replace a missing tooth, choosing a top dentist in Fayetteville, AR can make the difference between a smile that makes your life better, or a smile that requires constant upkeep and repair.

Many of our patients have told us that dental implants have improved their lives in a number of ways. Here are the top three:

Dental Implants Give You Your Smile Back

Tooth loss leaves a gap in your smile, and depending on where that gap is located, you might feel embarrassed about smiling. Dental implants match your natural smile with realistic color and shading. You can smile confidently knowing that no one will notice that you have a dental implant.

Dental Implants Don’t Move

When living with a partial denture, you deal with the fact that with any removable appliance, a certain amount of shifting or moving is a fact of life. Dental implants are surgically placed in the bone, so you never have to deal with embarrassing mishaps.

Aside from the potential of having an embarrassing moment, food will not get stuck under your dental implant. You can clean an implant just like your other teeth.

Dental Implants Last a Long Time

Partial and complete dentures require regular upkeep beyond what is required by your natural teeth. Dental implants are almost like having your tooth back again and require only regular brushing, flossing, and dental appointments to keep teeth and gums healthy. 

Occasionally, a dental implant might require tightening. It is possible to damage the crown, but unlikely, with regular, day-to-day use. Because of their low-maintenance requirements, dental implants give patients more freedom and convenience than other tooth replacement options.
