How dental implants from your dentists in Mansfield, OH, can improve your smile.

There are so many reasons to choose dental implants. The truth is, they are the most lifelike tooth replacement available. They are also the strongest tooth replacement you can have. When you need to replace lost teeth, dental implants are the right choice to make.

Drs. Craig Callen and Richard Nichols in Mansfield, OH, offer comprehensive dental care, including dental implants to improve your smile.

You should choose dental implants because:

They are versatile; dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, an entire arch of missing teeth, or even your entire missing smile.

They are natural-looking; dental implant restorations are made of materials that closely resemble natural tooth structure, so your dental implants will look just like natural teeth.

They are fully stable; dental implants are locked in place by bone, so they will never move around.

They are permanent; dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. They will never decay, and the dental implant crown material is stain resistant, so your dental implants will remain beautiful for years.

They are convenient; dental implants can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth, making it easy to keep your smile healthy.

Dental implants are also extremely successful, having a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Dental implant treatment begins with the placement of the dental implant screw. This will function as the "root" of your missing tooth. Over time, bone grows and fuses with the dental implant, anchoring the dental implant screw firmly in place. After the dental implant screw is stable, it is capped with a spectacular, lifelike dental implant crown.

Dental implants can rebuild your smile, restoring both the strength and beauty you deserve. To find out more about why you should choose dental implants, call Drs. Craig Callen and Richard Nichols in Mansfield, OH, at (419) 756-0188. Call today.

Wondering why people are turning to dental implants to restore their smiles?

Losing a tooth is one of the most upsetting issues that you can face when it comes to your smile; however, there are so many ways in which to restore and rebuild smiles after tooth loss these days, thanks to amazing advanced dental technology. Many people are turning to our Mansfield, OH, dentists Dr. Craig Callen and Dr. Richard Nichols for dental implants due, in part, to these cool benefits,

Implants are for Life

After losing a tooth you’re probably looking for a false tooth that is going to last as long as possible right? While other tooth replacement may need to be replaced, implants are truly the only lifelong tooth replacement. That’s because implants are made from a biocompatible material that helps them fuse permanently with the jawbone.

They Act Like Real Teeth

Implants truly mimic the look and feel of a real tooth. This means that you never have to worry about removing your implant at night, or about it moving or shifting around when talking or chewing. You can treat your implant just like a natural tooth.

Protect Your Jawbone

Bone loss is an upsetting but inevitable part of tooth loss. Of course, getting a dental implant can put a halt to bone loss. This is because the implant actually takes the place of the tooth roots, providing the jawbone with the same stimulation it needs to stay healthy. If you want to prevent your jawbone from changing shape and losing density over the years, then you’ll want to consider turning to our Mansfield, OH, cosmetic dentist for dental implants.

Eat What You Want

Not being able to eat the foods you love because your false tooth or teeth can’t handle it is upsetting. Not to mention, people with tooth loss often deal with nutritional deficits and other digestive issues as a result. The good news is that because an implant acts just like a real tooth, you can eat whatever you want without having to worry about your implant. It will stay put and make it incredibly easy again to eat the foods you love.
