B. Dental implants are easier to maintain.

C. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper dental care.

D. All of the above.


Q3. True or False: Missing teeth can lead to jawbone deterioration.


Q4. True or False: Gum disease is a reason for dental implant failure.

A1. D: All of the above describe dental implants. These tooth replacements restore your dental health and the look of your smile. They can be considered both restorative and cosmetic because they improve both tooth function and appearance. If you have a missing tooth, dental implants can help you chew and speak better while enhancing your self-confidence.

A2. D: All of the above are ways dental implants are different (and better) than dentures. These dental restorations employ a biocompatible rod implanted into the jawbone, giving dental implants much more security, convenience, and lasting-power than dentures.

A3. True: Missing teeth can cause a number of problems from teeth drifting to trouble with chewing or speaking. Jawbone deterioration is a hidden symptom of tooth loss. Without tooth roots connected to your jawbone, your jaw is missing chewing stimulation. Your body will stop sending nourishment to this part of your jawbone without chewing stimulation to signal the jawbone is being used.

A4. True: Dental implants can last for decades with thorough dental care; however, a few dental conditions threaten the life of your tooth implant. Gum disease is threatens your dental restoration with jawbone infection. Periodontitis can deteriorate the dental implant’s bond to your jaw as well as contribute to further tooth loss.
