Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients can eat food without restrictions – there are dietary restrictions with other missing teeth options like dentures. With dental implants there are no restrictions on what you can eat since they are durable, stable and permanent.
Highly successful – Dental implants offer a 98% success rate! More patients find long-term success with dental implants than any other dental restoration. With advancements in technology, dental implants are now able to be placed in patients with less bone structure for a more secure and supportive restoration than traditional dentures.
Closest thing to your natural teeth – A dental implant will look, feel, fit and function just like your natural teeth. They are strong and stable, and truly the next best thing to your real teeth. With advancements in dental technology and material, dental implants can now be capped with natural-looking dental restorations. Crowns, bridges, and dentures are now made to look more like natural teeth. The material reflects light like natural teeth and can be color matched to your remaining teeth. The only people who will know you have dental implants are you, and Dr. Freano.
Dental implants are permanent, and can last a lifetime – Dental implants are the preferred method for replacing missing teeth due to their permanent nature. Other options for missing teeth, such as dentures, will eventually need to be replaced or repaired. That cost can add up over a lifetime. Implants on the other hand require no additional maintenance besides your normal oral health routine, and twice yearly visits to your dentist in Lexington, KY for professional dental cleanings. When properly placed and cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
No need to damage healthy teeth to get dental implants – When getting a dental bridge, the surrounding healthy teeth require grinding down in order to provide a place to attach the bridge. Basically, you are damaging your healthy teeth in order to provide a replacement for the missing tooth. A dental implant is surgically placed only the space where the missing tooth is located leaving your healthy teeth alone.
Helps avoid bone loss associated with tooth loss – If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, that void can cause bone loss and deterioration in your jawbone. Dr. Freano will recommend dental implants because they are the only option for missing teeth that stimulates the jawbone, and in turn helps stimulate growth. Dental implants are the only dental restoration that act as an artificial root structure, filling the void that the missing tooth left behind. The implant post is high-grade titanium that fuses with the natural bone, strengthening the structure of the jaw. Dental implants can help rebuild a strong oral foundation and decreases the potential for bone loss.
No more embarrassing social situations – Removable options, such as dentures, for missing teeth oftentimes slip or do not fit correctly. The constant worry that your restoration may fall out while talking or eating is taxing. This leads to feeling uncomfortable in public or around other people. Dental implants are permanent and do not slip thus making speaking a lot easier. Learn more about dental implants vs. dentures.
Improves the appearance of smile and lower face – A face without teeth will appear sunken and can add years to your appearance. Dental implants help keep the natural shape of your face and lower jaw area.
