Benefits of Dental Implants

Implants are fast gaining popularity virtually sidelining the conventional bridges and dentures. Over three million people in the US already have implants in their mouths for restoring their missing natural teeth, and the number is increasing fast! Despite the high upfront cost, the rising popularity of implants is due to the following benefits which implants have over conventional tooth replacement options:

  • Aesthetics – artificial teeth on implants, such as crowns, bridges and dentures look much more natural than those on conventional dentures and bridges.
  • Long life– Conventional dentures and teeth need frequent repair and replacement every few years. Implants are fabricated from highly durable and strong Titanium implants, and are expected to remain functional for a lifetime.
  • High success rate– Implants have a high success rate of about 98%. This means that when you get your teeth replaced with dental implants, you won’t need to replace for years, if at all.
  • Firm anchorage– Implants are screwed directly into the jaw bone, and therefore serve as an excellent artificial root structure. The anchorage of implants within the bone is firm as a natural tooth.
  • Osseointegration– The material used in the implants is titanium, which is not only bio compatible, but it also encourages bone formation around itself. Osseointegration refers to a process whereby bone cells start growing into the implant surface resulting in a very natural integration.
  • Eat what you like– With implant supported teeth you can eat anything you like.
  • Chewing– The vertical and horizontal of chewing are well-supported by implants, unlike conventional denture which can slip or crack.
  • Comfort –Being perfectly fitted and not loose, implants are much more comfortable.
  • No worries and no embarrassment– Conventional dentures need to be removed at night and kept in a soaking solution. When worn, they can slip out at the most embarrassing moment. Implants are fixed in the bone and do not cause such problems.

If you need to get one or more of your missing teeth replaced, then you should consider dental implants. They are not only very durable, but they also restore your chewing and speaking ability just like your natural teeth.
