You’ve heard that dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth – but do you know why they’re so great? Here are 4 great benefits that dental implants have over other types of tooth replacement options:
Although other types of restorations can last for several years, none of them last as long as dental implants. Most types of appliances or prosthesis need to be replaced every decade or so. Implants? They last for an entire lifetime when cared for properly. In fact, implants have the highest success rating of any type of dental restoration.
Once an implant is placed into your jaw, your body begins to naturally form new bone structure around the implant root. Not only does this secure your implant into place more firmly – it also helps you preserve your facial profile as you age as well as keep adjacent teeth more stable. Most of us lose bone as we age, but with implants we can counteract the process of additional bone loss. The end result? Artificial teeth that are even stronger than your natural ones!
Easier Home Care
Implants can’t get cavities. But, it’s still important to brush and floss around them to prevent peri-implantitis (a condition like gingivitis.) Caring for your implants is as simple as brushing twice each day and flossing around your implants at least once a day – that’s it!
The look and feel of dental implants make them more like natural teeth than any other type of tooth replacement. By design, implants have a single root and fixed restoration that give the illusion that you still have all of your natural teeth!
