What is the truth about dental implants?
Are they REALLY the best solution for missing teeth?
In one word: Yes!
And in this blog post, we are going to present the reasons why you can believe that:
What are dental implants?
Dental implants have been used for decades to replace missing teeth.
The anatomy of an implant is pretty simple. It has three parts:
- Implant: A small titanium post is integrated within the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root
- Abutment: Holds the post and the crown together
- Crown: Replaces the missing tooth with a life-like, custom-crafted restoration
There are other dental solutions for replacing missing teeth, such as a dental bridge or dentures. But, when possible, our team at the Dental Group of Westchester will usually recommend a dental implant over these other treatments.
Benefits of dental implants
Dental implants offer some very unique advantages than other tooth-replacement treatments.
What are some of those advantages, and how do you benefit from them?
A few we think you’ll appreciate include:
Natural appearance and comfort – Nothing beats a dental implant for looking, feeling, or functioning like your natural tooth. Because an implant replaces your tooth from root to crown, it is a very stable and permanent solution. You don’t need to worry about slippage or chafing as you can experience with dentures or bridges. You can smile and laugh with complete confidence again!
Long-lasting and reliable – A dental implant is made of extremely durable materials like titanium and porcelain, which can take the full biting force of your teeth and jaws. Implants will not decay, and with proper care and maintenance can last for decades.
High success rate – Implants have an almost 98% success rate. That is a significant factor to consider when choosing treatment. At Dental Group of Westchester, we use advanced technology like a CBCT scanner, digital x-rays, and an intraoral camera to help diagnose, plan, and perform your implants procedure.
Improved ability to eat and chew – With implants, you can eat all the foods you love again. Implants fully restore your ability to chew your food. So go ahead and eat that corn-on-the-cob or caramel apple.
Retains bone and facial structure – One of the inevitable side effects of losing a tooth is also the loss of the underlying bone structure. This can lead to losing facial structure and a “sunk in” look around the mouth. Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry treatment that helps to retain and build bone tissue, providing a healthy foundation for your teeth and gums.
However, you probably agree that the quality of a procedure often depends on the skill of the one performing it.
