How Effective Are Dental Implants?
Many of people suffer from tooth loss due to decay, periodontal disease or injury. They all have to make the decision on which teeth replacement treatment to choose. Generally, anyone healthy enough to undergo routine tooth extraction without the need for specialized care can consider dental implants as a feasible option for teeth replacement. Ideally, patients should have enough bone density in the extracted area for a successful implant; otherwise, bone grafting is necessary before placing dental implants. They should also have healthy gums and maintain good dental hygiene. People who have diabetes, heart disease or have undergone radiation therapy above the neck area need to be examined to determine if a dental implant is a safe option.
At Midtown Dental Centre, we perform teeth replacement procedures every day. People tend not to opt for dental implant surgery because other teeth replacement options are cheaper in comparison. However, dental implants have benefits that other options don’t offer.
If you have had your teeth removed recently, consider the following points about dental implant surgery as you decide which treatment to go for:
- Restores bone structure
When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone starts to lose density. Dental implants help retain bone density and maintain the structure of the jaw.
- Looks natural
Among teeth replacement treatments, dental implants offer the closest experience of having real teeth. They are designed to look natural and restore confidence in your smile as they feel like your real teeth.
- Feels comfortable
Once the implant is completely set in the bone and the tissue around it has healed, it feels natural and noticeable (or unnoticeable) as the rest of your natural teeth. It is a far superior alternative to dentures as it is a permanent fixture that doesn’t slip or move.
- Functions like real teeth
The functions of your mouth, such as chewing and talking, are restored to their natural state as dental implants provide the same ease of use as your natural teeth.
- Highly durable
Dental implants are highly durable and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. Most implants last at least 15 years and are on top of long-term teeth replacement options.
- High success rate
The success rates vary depending on the placement of implants in the jaw. But on a broad scale, almost 98 percent of the procedures are successful.
- No need for further dental treatment
After the procedure is done, there is no need for specialized care. You can take care of the implant the same way you would take care of your natural teeth; by keeping up good dental hygiene and making regular visits to the dentist.
Dental implant surgery is carried out over a long period. After the initial procedure, your mouth takes a long time to heal, requiring multiple visits to the dentist. Midtown Dental Centre will try to make your visits as stress-free as possible. Count on us for any information about dental implant surgery.
