A dental implant is an actual recreated replacement for a missing tooth. The implant can be molded into the shape of your old tooth, as well as look and feel like it, too. The implant will be strong and stable, with no worries about it moving or falling out. Implants are permanent and cannot be removed. Because of this, chewing and biting will cause no problems. Not only are dental implants great for cosmetic reasons, they are great for dental health as well. As long as they are cared for properly, implants can last a really long time with relatively no problems. You can brush your implant just as you would your real teeth. Only you will know which teeth are real and which are implants. Get a smile makeover at our North Raleigh cosmetic dental practice.
