Ditch the Dentures and Consider Dental Implants

Dental Implants

A dental implant could restore your healthy smile. Instead of sitting on the gum line like dentures or damaging adjacent teeth like bridgework, full dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to support permanent, stable replacements for missing teeth. Affordable dental implants are the best solution for the majority of people who are missing one or more natural teeth.

Why Are Implants Preferable to Bridgework and Dentures?

Dentures can slip, make embarrassing noises, cause irritation and limit a person’s diet. A partial denture may also cause damage to adjacent teeth; in some cases, these teeth may be lost. Up to 30 percent of teeth located next to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture fail within five to seven years. Dentures may also cause bone loss in the same area where teeth are missing. Fixed bridges often require healthy teeth to be reshaped or cut down.

Are You an Ideal Candidate for Dental Implants?

Even people with bone loss, existing dentures and partials, or preexisting medical problems like high blood pressure and diabetes are often successful candidates for dental implants. Smoking lowers the success rate, but does not disqualify a patient from the procedure. Some people develop complications from dental implants that may be related to genetic factors. Patients with a personal or family history of problems with implants should inform their periodontist, dentist, or oral surgeon. Most dental implants function perfectly 20 years after placement by an oral surgeon. Given their overall success rate of 95 percent, and 50 years of research to back up the statistics, dental implants are frequently the treatment of choice for almost anyone who is missing teeth.
