When you lose teeth whether due to poor general oral care, tooth decay, trauma, or extraction, dental implants may help replace the missing teeth. A dental implant comprises a metal post that acts as the replacement root of the missing teeth. An artificial tooth is placed on an abutment fitted on the post. The implant posts are made of titanium which fuses with the jawbone. So the implants will not slip, make noise, or trigger bone damage. Better still; the material for implants does not decay like your natural teeth. Many people consider dental implants because of the following reasons:
High Success Rate
The procedure for dental implant installation has an average success rate of about 95 percent. Although the percentages can fluctuate based on the health of the patient and their general habits at time of recovery, when performed by a specialist, it is rare to have the implants fail. Our prosthodontist will not give you implants if he or she thinks that they will put your health at risk.
Implants Improve mouth Function
When you have artificial teeth that fall out, you may have trouble speaking or laughing. This is the case with dentures. However, dental implants provide a stable solution for teeth replacement. You may not realize it, but dental implants remain in place longer compared to natural teeth since they lack periodontal ligaments. As a result, you are able to consume the foods you love without the fear of having your false teeth shift or fall out. Additionally, implants help protect your healthy teeth ensuring that your overall dental health is good.
Are dentures causing you headaches because they are persistently slipping off or do you have missing teeth that you need replacement? Contact our prosthodontic team for an evaluation to find out if implants are your bet.
