5 Benefits to Choosing a Dental Implant

Posted in Dental Implants

“Implants are too expensive.”

“What if my insurance doesn’t cover implants?”

“My body could reject the implant.”

“It’s only one tooth. I could just get a partial or bridge.”

Yes, there are several common reasons folks avoid the idea of getting a dental implant. But what they probably don’t realize is that a dental implant is one of the most reliable and predictable procedures in modern dentistry. With a success rate of over 95%, dental implants have been changing lives now more than ever before.

Here are some reasons why you should seriously consider dental implant therapy for replacing a tooth or two:

  1. Save the Shape of Your Jaw

The prosthetic “root” of the implant actually stimulates and strengthens the bone in your jaw. This prevents your smile from looking sunken over time.

  1. Eat What You Want

Because an implant is stronger than natural teeth, you can eat all the foods you loved before losing your tooth.

  1. Smile Without Being Self-Conscious

You don’t need to worry about someone noticing the false teeth. Implants look and feel natural.

  1. Enjoy a Normal Hygiene Routine

Keep your implant clean with daily brushing and flossing. You don’t have to remove an implant for cleaning. It stays put for good.

  1. A Permanent Solution

Speaking of staying put, an implant is meant to be with you for life. Other restorations will need adjustments and replacement. An implant can stay with you forever.

Dental implant surgery is very safe and surprisingly comfortable. Your dental office probably has a very flexible plan to help you pay for treatment, even if it isn’t partially covered by insurance.

Talk with your local dentist to find out how implants can make a difference in your life.
