Dental implants have improved tremendously over the years. Modern implant techonology has now made implants not only safe, they can look great.
What can Dental Implants do for me?
Dental implants are standalone fixtures. They have the added advantage over the bridges as they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
Dental implants can :
☛ Replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
☛ Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
☛ Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
☛ Aesthetics: Dental implants will look and feel like your own teeth! They will integrate into the structure of your bone for better stability.
☛ Tooth-saving:Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
☛ Confidence: Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about displaced dentures and messy denture adhesives.
☛ Reliable: Your canine teeth are too prominent
Statistics indicate that they may last more than 30 years. Once successfully integrated with the surrounding bone, implants have long-term potential as natural teeth, if properly taken care of.
What is the success rate of implants?
Highly successful. There is low infection potential and no rejection by the body. A ninety-five to ninety-eight percent success rate for the lower jaw, and an eighty-six to ninety-two percent success rate for the upper jaw. However, implants must be maintained by the patient with proper oral hygiene and frequent dental examinations and cleanings.
Life after a Dental implant?
☛ Life does gets better after a dental implant.
☛ Dental implants are like your own teeth and they will require the same care. To keep your implant clean and plaque-free, keep brushing and flossing as you always did! Not to forget the periodic visit to your dentist for dental health checkup.
