Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are actually replacements for the roots of your teeth. These artificial replacements are made to attach to your jaw bone for strength, and they are made to match the color of your natural teeth for appearance.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Unlike dentures, many people find that dental implants are actually better than their original teeth. Here's why:

  • Dental implants look like your teeth.
  • In the past, dentures would slip out of patients' mouths. With dental implants, there is no fear that the implant will slip out of your mouth since it is fastened to your jaw.
  • Dental implants feel just like all the other teeth in your mouth.
  • Dental implants never leave your mouth. They work like real teeth and can chew just as well.
  • You can brush and floss a dental implant just like regular teeth.
  • As long as you maintain proper oral care, you will never need to replace your dental implants.
  • Dentures have to be removed often and need to be attached to your mouth using expensive adhesives. Dental implants are not removed.

If you live in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, have lost a tooth or teeth, and want more information on dental implants, please contact the Pittsburgh cosmetic dentistry office of the Center for Aesthetic Dentistry today to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Babak Firouzi.
