As astounding as it may sound, research has shown that about 10% of all adults in the United States have at least one tooth missing from their mouth. Traditionally, the approach for treating missing teeth has involved dentures, which many patients have complained as being unsightly, or not convincing enough. However, modern techniques are now able to offer more permanent solutions with better aesthetic appearances. One of these improved solutions is known as dental implants.
Dental implants are a titanium rod that has been designed in order to mimic the look and shape of an artificial tooth root. On top of this implant “root”, is an abutment which is put in place in order to support the restoration. This abutment is usually made of porcelain and is also known as a dental crown. Most dental implants are strategically placed in order to support not only one tooth but many at once in order to create a stabilized denture. The stability and integral work are unparalleled by any other kind of cosmetic restoration.
When compared to dentures or other cosmetic dentistry solution such as fixed bridges, implants are able to offer significant benefits such as:
Designs that mimic your natural teeth
Implants are easily maintained
They are much more comfortable
They actively work to prevent the loss of bone density in your job
They do not interfere with your facial profile
There is a 98% success rate with dental implants
Dental implants are able to offer many more benefits that have to do with the look and improved function of your teeth and jaws that have to be felt to be believed!
