Missing teeth make it difficult to smile, interfere with speaking, eating, and allow our other teeth to shift out of place. If you’re like most dental patients, you want to replace your missing teeth as quickly and effectively as possible. In the past, this meant wearing a permanent bridge or a removable prosthesis like a denture or partial denture. Not anymore. Dental implants have become the superior treatment of choice when it comes to restoring your smile’s function and beauty.
Implants are Permanent
With a 98% success rate, dental implants are more reliable than any other dental treatment. After being placed, most well-cared for implants will last for an entire lifetime. What dental restoration can do that?
Replace as Many Teeth as Necessary
Implants can be used to replace one tooth or all of your teeth. With traditional treatments there is always a limit on where or how many teeth can be replaced. The strength and integrity of dental implants allow prosthesis such as full dentures to be anchored onto as few as 4 implant roots. Because they stand independent of any other teeth, implants can essentially be placed in any location of the mouth as long as there is adequate bone support.
They’re More Affordable Than You Thought
Traditional treatments like dental bridges only last about 10 years, requiring them to be replaced over time. With dental implants, you can permanently replace the teeth without having to replace the implant later on. Although they may cost slightly more in the beginning, they are a much smarter investment.
Are you a candidate for dental implants? Schedule an exam and x-rays with your dentist to find out.
