If you’ve had any issues with your teeth in the past, chances are you’ve looked at dental implants as a restoration option at one point or another.

While it may seem radical to replace two or more teeth with fake ones, there are some huge benefits to implants. However, it’s hard to know when implants should be considered as a serious option for your cosmetic dental needs.

A root canal won’t work

Often, dental implants are your only option, next to dentures, to replace teeth that a root canal just can’t fix. As effective as root canals are, sometimes the tooth is too far gone even for Dr. Bruce Utterback and Pia Sweeney to handle them. This is certainly an example of a time when you should look into dental implants to replace your affected teeth.

You want them

A large part of cosmetic dentistry involves what you want your smile to look like. It is, after all, yours. While you do need to take into account the advice of our team here at Sweeney Utterback Dentistry in Virginia Beach, Virginia, if you like the look of implants more than veneers, crowns, or bridges, and your mouth is healthy enough to support the implants, then you should get implants.

They look, feel, and function just like real teeth, which is a large part of their appeal.

If you think you’re ready to have dental implants, but want to take a deeper look at the possibilities, then call us today at 757.222.3737 to schedule an appointment and see if they’re the solution for you.
