The Advantages of Dental Implants
The Dental Implant Answer
For patients missing a single tooth – or even a full set of uppers and lowers – dental implants are the most stable option available. They don’t move or slip or wobble. They’re stable and secure – for life. Since implants are so stable, most patients “forget” about them. Only regular brushing is required for maintenance.
Dental implants can perk up a smile, and no one will ever know the tooth is not real. Eating select or soft foods is not a restriction anymore because implants are affixed with a strong titanium post to replace the root system. Implant supported teeth are the closest thing possible to natural teeth. They look, feel and function just as strong, stable teeth should.
Just about anyone with missing teeth is a candidate for dental implants. The primary concern is one of physical health. Generally, uncontrolled diabetics and cancer patients who have recently received radiation therapy (at the site of the implant area) are not good candidates. Any other medical condition is usually not a contraindication for dental implant treatment.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of the bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompanies bridge work and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of adjacent teeth like a bridge does, as neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. Most of the teeth are left untouched, meaning a significant long-term benefit to oral health.
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak, smile and eat with comfort and confidence. They are secure and offer freedom from the irritating clicks and wobbles of dentures. They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
