What are the benefits of having dental implants?
We can’t say they’ll change your life, but we can say they’ll improve biting efficiency, nutritional intake, aesthetics, stimulate bone – the list goes on…
Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement. Strong, lifelike and long-lasting, they offer a level of function and consequently self-assurance you’ll wish you knew about years ago.
There are so many advantages of having dental implants. Here are a few of the best:
High success rate:
Dental implants have a high success rate of over 90%. However, before you proceed, you must have your medical history and oral health thoroughly assessed by a qualified implant dentist to make sure you’re an eligible implant candidate.
Providing you effectively care for your teeth implants, they can present a long-lasting tooth replacement solution. While elements of the implants such as the crown may need replacing over time, your teeth implants could last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
Supports bone growth:
If your teeth are missing, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation, causing dissolution of the bone and facial structure. Since dental implants are designed to replace and mimic the tooth’s natural root, they can provide the stimulation needed for natural bone growth, preserving your natural jaw and facial structure.
If you’re seeking an aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement option, teeth implants allow you control over the width, length and general appearance of the replacement tooth to ensure your new teeth implants better align with your aesthetic vision.
Better protection for surrounding teeth:
Unlike other tooth replacement options such as tooth-supported bridges, dental implants don’t require the reduction of surrounding teeth to support the new implant structure. While partial dentures can add pressure to the surrounding teeth and cause damage to gum tissue, dental implants can help preserve the natural teeth and gums by independently supporting the new replacement tooth. As with natural teeth, however, implants still require excellent maintenance and oral care through regular brushing, flossing and dental visits.
Tooth implants (via their attached ceramic crown, implant-supported denture or a fixed bridge) have an incredibly natural appearance. Tooth implants are designed to look, feel and function like your natural teeth. As the titanium implant fuses with the bone (in a process known as osseointegration) much like your tooth root, you’ll be able to eat, speak and smile without worrying that your teeth will displace (as you might with conventional dentures).
