Dental implants are small posts placed beneath the gum to work as the roots of missing teeth. An artificial tooth is then fitted to match your teeth and mouth and improve your smile. An implant can replace one tooth or multiple teeth and looks and feels natural.
What are the Advantages of Tooth Implants?
Implants are permanent because they fuse with bone. They look and feel like your own teeth. All the discomforts associated with removable dentures are eliminated. They function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat with confidence and without pain. Because adjacent teeth are not altered to support the implant (as in the case of a bridge), more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth for flossing, thereby improving oral hygiene. Implants are very strong and, if taken care of correctly, can last a lifetime.
Can anyone get Teeth implants?
Not everyone is a good candidate for dental tooth implants. If you have an existing medical or dental condition that prevents you from getting dental tooth implants, we will work with you to find a treatment that will achieve your dental goals. It is essential that the patient has healthy gums and sufficient bone in which to place the implant, and they must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
How successful are Dental Implants?
Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%. With proper care implants can last a lifetime.
