June is Men’s Health Month, so don’t waste this opportunity to have an important conversation with your periodontist about your oral health. Many men neglect to see medical and dental professionals regularly enough to keep up with their preventative healthcare, and that can wind up hurting them in the long run. Even among those who tend to be conscientious about their health, men tend to neglect their oral health even more than other aspects of their health care. That’s why men with missing teeth should take the time to talk to someone about how implants can help.

Permanent, Comfortable Tooth Replacement

Dental implants provide a tooth replacement option that is natural looking, comfortable, and permanent. While other options like bridges and dentures are capable of delivering a great appearance with good patient comfort results, they are not as long-lasting or as durable as the average implant. When you consider that and the fact that your implants can replace a single tooth or a whole mouthful with equal ease, it’s easy to see why this procedure is becoming so popular for patients across the entire spectrum of tooth replacement needs.

Are You a Candidate?

Like many other surgical procedures, dental implants are not for everyone. Patients with significant jawbone loss or advanced conditions that make anesthesia dangerous might need a different tooth replacement option. There are procedures that can provide scaffolding for some patients with jawbone loss, as well as options to improve the health of patients who do not qualify for those reasons. Sometimes, that allows the procedure to go forward. Sometimes it does not.


If you are looking for your permanent tooth replacement solution, look no further. Implants have all these benefits:

  • Restore full function and go back to eating your favorite foods
  • Present a natural, healthy smile
  • Preserve the location of remaining teeth on the jaw
