Dental Implants are an Alternative to Dentures for Missing Teeth
For individuals currently utilizing dentures or experiencing tooth loss, it is imperative to consider dental implants as a reliable and long-lasting solution. These implants not only offer durability but also provide a natural-looking appearance, surpassing the alternatives of removable dentures. As experts in the field, we have witnessed the growing preference among denture wearers to upgrade to the permanence that dental implants deliver.
Why patients prefer dental implants to dentures
Implants, as the leading and sole surgically-placed solution, provide an unmatched method for replacing missing teeth. Utilizing a titanium post, discreetly positioned below the gums and securely fastened to the jawbone, we ensure optimal stability and performance. Through the remarkable osseointegration process, this titanium post assumes the role of a natural root, delivering a solid foundation for attaching the replacement tooth. Consequently, the dental implant exhibits the same appearance, sensation, and functionality as a genuine tooth. In contrast to removable dentures necessitating nightly removal and soaking, implants offer unparalleled convenience. Patients are relieved of concerns regarding specialized cleaners, adhesives, or overnight soaking, as they simply maintain their implants with regular brushing and flossing, adhering to the same care routine as natural teeth. Our vast expertise and experience in implant dentistry guarantee reliable and trusted solutions.
According to the American Association of Endodontics, the success rate for dental implants is 98 percent, http://www.aae.org/about-aae/news-room/press-releases/new-research-shows-dental-implants-require-significantly-more-follow-up-treatment-than-root-canals.aspx. An overwhelming majority of patients who replaced their teeth with implants were able to keep the implants and use them like a highly functioning natural tooth, without the implant ever having to be removed. This is a remarkable success rate. By comparison, only 73 percent of patients were satisfied when wearing dentures, according to a study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5204067/
