The Implant Advantage

Dental implants are now the standard of care for missing teeth. Better than older solutions such as dentures and other removable appliances, implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They also help prevent bone loss caused by missing tooth roots and do not require adjacent teeth to be ground down. Along with these major benefits, other important reasons to consider upgrading to dental implants include:

A dental implant merges with your body. Even the best prosthesis will always be a foreign part that requires care. By contrast, a dental implant is simply an artificial root, which after it heals, merges with your body and acts likes a natural root.

Dental implants preserve your facial structure. Because dental implants are anchored into bone, they securely transmit chewing forces to the jaw bone, which helps to maintain a healthy jaw and preserve facial structure, which is not the case if teeth are missing or when a conventional denture has been put in place. Implants help to keep your jaw bone healthy, so your facial structure stays intact.

Dental implants not only restore your smile, they allow you to improve and maintain it. Functionality and visual appearance go together. When you fix missing teeth with implants, there will be no visible difference, which can happen with older methods. Additionally, with implants, time-consuming care and maintenance is not required.

You can feel more comfortable talking, smiling and eating. Dental implants are the most natural looking and natural feeling replacement for missing teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants don’t slip or click when you talk, laugh or eat.

Today’s state-of-the-art restoration products and techniques cover various patient needs – whether one tooth needs to be replaced, or all of them. They have been scientifically tested and used throughout the last three decades by qualified dental professionals worldwide. When performed by a trained and experienced clinician, dental implant surgery is a predictable dental procedure.
