If you're missing a tooth, replacing it is absolutely vital to avoiding all of the serious problems associated with missing teeth. And if you're like many Indianapolis-area patients, you've probably heard a lot about dental implants.
Implants are popular for many reasons, including their inconspicuous nature- no one will know your new tooth isn't real. That's important. But even more important is the durability of dental implants.
If properly maintained, your dental implant can easily last decades. Depending on your age, then, a dental implant can last the rest of your life. You won't have to worry about replacing the implant or going through another lengthy procedure.
Dental implants are made from strong, durable materials and they are rooted in your jawbone. Because of this, implants provide extraordinary longevity and can be trusted to successfully chew any sort of food.
It's important that you practice sound dental hygiene and maintain your implant the same way you would a natural tooth. If you do, you'll get decades of solid work from your new implant.
If you live in or around Indianapolis, Indiana and you're missing a tooth, you should consider a dental implant as a solution. Please call Dr. John R. Phelps today at 317-818-9858 for a consultation.
