The Benefits of Dental Implants
High success rate – Dental implants hold about a 98% success rate. After your dental implant procedure, it is important to follow all of your dentist’s instructions on how to care for your dental implants. If the patient can maintain good oral hygiene, a proper diet and not smoke, dental implants should last a lifetime.
Does not impact surrounding teeth – Dental implants do not require your healthy teeth to be reduced like dental bridges do. In the past, if you were missing just one tooth, your dentist would have recommended a dental bridge. This requires the two adjacent teeth to be grinded down and those two prepared teeth would be used to attach both ends of the dental bridge.
Offers many options – Dental implants give you many teeth replacement options. They can be used to replace just one missing tooth, multiple missing teeth and even all your teeth. With each option, the new dental restoration will be more secure and permanent.
Easy to care for Care – Dental implants are easy to care for. You will brush and floss them just like your natural teeth. Having dentures and dental bridges involve special care including removing them and brushing them daily. They are also fragile and can possibly break if dropped. You can never let your dentures dry out and that can be a constant worry especially when not wearing them.
Eliminates bone loss associated with tooth loss – If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, that void can cause bone loss and deterioration in your jawbone. Greeley, CO dentists Drs. Marr and Marr, will recommend dental implants over other dental restorations because they are the only option for missing teeth that stimulates the jaw bone which helps stimulate bone growth. This will prevent recession of the jawbone and facial collapse.
Better stability – Since dental implants integrate with your jawbone, they are incredibly stable. This eliminates the fear of them slipping around in your mouth while talking or falling out while you are trying to eat. Dentures will deliver about a 30-40% normal chewing function. Dental implants will deliver close to a 100% normal chewing function.
More durable – Since the restoration placed on the implant is not real enamel, there is no risk of a cavity or tooth decay on the replacement tooth. With proper care and maintenance, your implant should last a lifetime.
Most natural option – A dental implant will look, feel, fit and function just like real teeth especially when compared to removable dentures or a dental bridge. They are strong, stable and the next best thing to your real teeth.
