Although dental implants are the best option for tooth replacement, you might be worried that the procedure isn't right for you.
Are they really safe? Won't people be able to tell they're fake? Aren't they unnatural? Wouldn't dentures be easier?
These are common concerns, but you shouldn't let them stop you from considering dental implants
Here are the facts:
1. The procedure is safe and effective
The thought of inserting an artificial tooth replacement into your gums might seem scary. As long as you invest in a trained denturist, the procedure is overwhelmingly likely to go well. Success rates are about 98%.
As far as pain is concerned, an implant is much better for long-term comfort than traditional dentures. In fact, many of our patients say the procedure is less uncomfortable than having their teeth cleaned.
2. No one will be able to tell the difference
No one wants to be self-conscious about their teeth. Implants feel natural, and they look just like real teeth to others. You can be confident that your smile looks its best.
3. You can eat what you want
A big disadvantage of traditional dentures is that they restrict what and how you can eat. Dentures can become loose and cause pain when chewing, but an implant feels sturdy and natural. You won't have to think twice about whether you can eat your favorite foods.
4. Replacing roots will strengthen your jaw
Instead of resting on top of the holes left by your old teeth, an implant goes down into your gums and acts as a root. A strong bond forms as new tissue grows around the implant, just as it grows around the roots of a real tooth. This helps prevent loss of density, which can weaken your jaw over time.
5. You'll keep your healthy teeth healthy
Your implant will rest comfortably next to your other healthy teeth. Unlike with dental bridges and other procedures, there's no need to mangle perfectly good teeth to make sure everything fits right.
