Dental implants are a great option if you’re looking to replace teeth that have lost their original function, feel, and appearance. Without teeth that are nearly perfect, you can’t live as good a life as others. After all, your teeth are responsible for a lot of your ability to speak, and obviously eating.

So with that in mind, if you’re considering getting dental implants here at Stephen Kwitnicki, DDS in Union, New Jersey, we recommend you take the following facts into account before proceeding.

They’re not for everyone

While implants are a great restorative dentistry option, not every patient is a candidate for this procedure. In order to get implants you need good jaw bone and gum health. Since they’re inserted directly into your gums, if your gum health is less-than-stellar, you may have to use dentures until your gums heal enough to become viable options for implants.

They last forever

Well, not forever, but as long as you take care of your implants just as you would real teeth, they’ll last as long as you do. That’s the beauty of implants – they can really make you nearly invincible as far as oral health problems are concerned.
