How dental implants can enhance your smile

You’ve heard all about dental implants, and now you’re wondering if they can help you fix your smile. You have large spaces in your dental implantssmile and you’re wondering how dental implants help. The truth is dental implants are the modern, high-tech way to replace missing teeth. Before dental implants, you had a choice of either removable partials or dentures, neither of which gave you a natural, full smile. Dr. Jill Markos, your dentist in Vancouver, Washington wants you to know all about what dental implants can do for you.

Dental implants are the go-to treatment to give you a youthful, beautiful smile. They are much better than bridges, partials or dentures to replace your missing teeth. Dental implants are:

  • Highly successful, with a success rate of over 95 percent!
  • Stable, because they are surrounded by bone and don’t move around
  • Permanent, because they become part of your smile
  • Convenient, because you don’t ever have to take them out
  • Conservative, because Dr. Markos doesn’t have to restore the teeth around them

Dr. Markos wants to tell you about one of the biggest advantages of dental implants; they are beautiful and natural-looking, just like your original teeth. They blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, to create a full, dazzling smile.

Dental implants can also make you look younger, because the bone in your jaw actually fuses around the implant, giving you a firm, youthful jawline. In contrast, removable dentures and partials can actually make you lose bone, from the pressure of the appliance. Losing bone can cause your face to sag, and you lose the youthful contours of your face and jaws.

Dr. Markos uses state-of-the-art technology to develop a comprehensive dental implant treatment plan for you. So don’t you deserve a full, beautiful smile? Of course you do, so don’t delay.
