Today we have a special message about dental implants. We want to show you the three major benefits of these tools. Dental implants have become an elite way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants have been around for a few decades, but people still know little about them. We can provide you with dental implants that can restore your chewing ability and give you back your confidence. Give us a call at 618‑219‑1412 to book your visit.
Here are 3 major benefits of dental implants you need to know:
- Dental implants are the strongest tooth replacement option in dentistry
Not all tooth replacement options are made the same. If you are missing most of your teeth or all of your teeth, you have probably heard a great deal about dentures. Maybe you even wear a set of dentures. Removable dentures have been used in dentistry for hundreds of years, and today’s dentures are lifelike and aesthetically pleasing. But unfortunately, dentures cannot match the power of natural teeth. Dental implants do nearly match the power of your natural teeth. Patients who go from dentures to dental implants go from having limited food restrictions to eating whatever they want. This is important because denture wearers can sometimes not get the proper nutrition they need.
- Dental implants merge with the jawbone.
Why are dental implants so strong? Well, they merge with the jawbone after surgery. Dental implants are made from titanium, a material that is biocompatible, meaning it literally becomes part of your body. This is so important because the jawbone will change shape once the teeth are lost. When the jawbone recedes, you’ll lose the vertical height between your nose and chin and develop wrinkles around the mouth. In short, jawbone recession makes you look much older than you are. That’s not something anyone wants. Dental implants preserve the jawbone and give you a more youthful appearance.
- Dental implants are highly successful.
Dental implants are placed in the bone, so this is technically oral surgery. I know that the term oral surgery may scare people off, but read on before your write off dental implants. Our dental implants are placed with precision to minimize sensitivity. Studies also show that dental implants can be placed with a 98 percent success rate. That’s an amazing success rate for any medical procedure. So, while you may think dental implants are risky, just consider this incredible success rate.
Correct Missing Teeth in Belleville IL
Almost anyone is a candidate for dental implants. You simply need to have enough jawbone to support the dental implants. We don’t want to mislead you. Dental implants are an expense, but think about what you gain. You can preserve your facial structure and finally eat the foods you love.
