When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.
If you have one or more missing teeth or will soon be having a tooth extracted, you may be thinking about tooth replacement options. Most patients have a choice in this decision, usually comparing the benefits of implants versus other solutions, like dentures and bridges. Though not everyone will be a good candidate for dental implants, those who are will experience a more secure and long-lasting solution when choosing implants.
At our practice, we highly recommend dental implants whenever possible. There are many reasons for getting dental implants. In most cases, a patient has already lost one or more teeth due to tooth decay, periodontitis or some type of physical trauma. However, the ability to completely customize dental implants also makes them an option for people who desire the improved confidence that comes from a perfect smile. You may also wish to consider dental implants if you:
- Have pain caused by malocclusion
- Want the look and feel of a real tooth
- Desire a low-maintenance routine
Did you know…
Success rates are extremely high for this procedure – especially in patients with healthy gums and sufficient bone structure. Furthermore, implants are very low-maintenance in comparison to other tooth replacement solutions. In fact, you can treat an implant in much of the same way you treat your other teeth.
