As you may know, a dental implant is a treatment designed to replace a lost tooth—but do you ever wonder if you’re a good candidate? If you have, there are a few things you should know.

Dental implants are designed to look and feel like a natural tooth. Sadly, if you’re missing a tooth you could have a hard time eating, chewing, or speaking. Fortunately, you can overcome these issues with an implant. Also, the color and look of your teeth will be taken into consideration so that your implant can be made to match your smile.

As you probably know, having healthy, natural teeth is the best way to keep your smile looking healthy, but with recent advancements, dental implants come close. For example, unlike dentures, which you have to replace about every five years, implants can last for more than 25 years. In fact, implants are durable enough that many patients never have to replace them.
