Useful information on Dental Implants
A dental implant may be the best option for restoring your smile when you have lost or broken a tooth. Learn more about dental implants and when they are right for you.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities.
Dental implants are a long-term solution
Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges only last five to seven years. At some point they may need to be replaced. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
Enjoy life without worrying about your teeth!
No need to stay home or feel uncomfortable in public, embarrassed because your smile looks different, or worrying that missing teeth will limit your ability to join in the fun or that removable dentures or tooth-supported replacement teeth will loosen or fall out when you talk, eat or laugh. Teeth restored with dental implants are teeth that let you enjoy your life.
Retain your natural face shape, and smile
A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
Dental implants vs. dentures
Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth. No more worrying that your dentures might slip or fall out. Dentures may slip when you eat, talk, smile, laugh, kiss, yawn or cough. Dental implants are fixed in place and fuse naturally with your jawbone,
meaning your replacement teeth won’t move, click or shift.
Eat your favorite foods!
Taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. You can bite naturally, eat virtually anything you want and, unlike removable dentures that can feel uncomfortable, you can experience the full taste of the food you eat with dental implants, too.
Protect your healthy teeth
Placing a tooth-supported bridge requires grinding away the teeth on one or both sides of the missing tooth or teeth. This damages healthy teeth to restore those that are missing. Dental implants go in the jawbone, in the spot where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy teeth.
How long will dental implants last?
Dental implant treatment has a track record of reliable, long-term successful outcomes and is often considered more predictable than other treatments to repair or replace missing teeth, including bridgework, removable appliances and retreatment of failing root canalled teeth.
