The benefits of dental implants
Durability and Functionality
An implant-supported prosthesis can look and feel like a natural tooth. It is strong, durable and functions just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants are designed to be long-term solutions. Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges may last 10-15 years, but at some point they will need to be replaced due to dental decay. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last for decades when properly placed and cared for over time.
Dental implant treatment has a long-term track record of reliability and success over the past 30 years.
Cavities can’t occur in an implant-restored crown. But it is important to maintain it just like you would if it were your natural teeth. Frequent visits to your dentist and excellent oral hygiene are necessary to ensure long-term success.
Oral Health Benefits
A face without teeth can appear sunken and saggy. Dental implants can maintain the natural shape of your face because it continues to stimulate bone during function, minimizing bone loss. Maintain the shape of your jaws can retain the shape of your face and smile.
Preserve healthy bone. Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing teeth can lead to additional problems, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. When it is not being used to support a natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness. Dental implants help stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.
Speak, eat and smile … easy! Other treatment alternatives such as dentures can lead to bone deterioration which can interfere with eating, speaking, smiling and other activities of everyday life.
Protect your healthy adjacent teeth. Traditional tooth-supported bridges require grinding and damaging the teeth adjacent to the missing teeth. Dental implants are inserted into the jawbone where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy tooth.
Enjoy life without worrying about your teeth! No need to be embarrassed about the appearance of your smile or worry that your removable dentures will loosen or fall out when you talk, eat or laugh! Dental implants are fixed and solid to give you peace of mind.
