Missing Teeth? Find Out Why Dental implants are Your Permanent Solution.

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is embedded into the jawbone to secure and support replacement teeth. Once it fuses to the jawbone, it looks feels, and acts exactly like a natural tooth. Discover more details about these modern dental wonders.

The Many Advantages of a Dental Implant

A dental implant can make you look better and be more confident about your smile. In addition, it’s the only tooth replacement option that feels completely natural and enables you to eat, talk, and live your life with ease. While treatment may take several months for more complex cases, patients with simple cases are able to get same day dental implants. These same day dental implants offer maximum convenience with minimal treatment time. And since a dental implant is fused to the jawbone, there’s no risk of it slipping, which happens with dentures and bridges. So even though the cost of a dental implant is more than these other options, its comfort and permanence justify any extra dental implant costs. And since dentures and bridges can stress nearby teeth and fail to support the jawbone, there is a higher risk of both bone loss and dental decay. But a dental implant doesn’t cause those problems, which makes dental implant costs well worth it in the long run. If the cost of dental implants is a concern, see if your dentist accepts insurance or a dental discount plan like DentRite.

Superior Success Rates

Dental implants average a 95 percent success rate, which is higher than both bridges and dentures. According to tooth restoration experts, the average success rate of dental implants is more than 95 percent. But since each person has different needs and concerns, the only way to see if you’re eligible for treatment is to get a dental evaluation.

Keep a Dental Implant Looking Good and Lasting Long

According to tooth restoration experts, all it takes to take care of dental implants is the same good dental hygiene habits needed for natural teeth. This includes brushing at least twice a day, daily flossing, and seeing your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
