Why Have a Dental Implant?

Posted on March 27th, 2020

Dental implants replace an entire tooth—including the root—with a permanent replacement. Michael Colleran, DDS can tell you it is the #1 most popular tooth replacement method in all of dentistry, but there are many reasons dental implant surgery may be recommended.

Dental implants may work for you if you have one or more teeth missing, your jawbone has reached full adult growth, and you’re willing to commit several months to the implant process. Other times when dental implants might be a good dental solution include:

  • When gum tissue is healthy
  • When bone density is adequate to support an implant
  • When a patient wants to speak more clearly
  • When a patient wants to eat and chew easily
  • When a patient does not want to wear dentures
  • When the patient does not use tobacco

Dr. Colleran wants you to have a full, functional smile that you are proud to show off. Though implants are more of a marathon than a sprint, they do provide a permanent, beautiful solution for missing teeth. If you have questions or concerns about dental implants, get in touch with your San Luis Obispo dentist today!
