Dental implants have become the preferred method to replace missing teeth. In fact, over 3 million people in the United States have dental implants and that number is growing by 500,000 annually. Here’s why millions of people are replacing their missing teeth with dental implants.
1. Natural look and comfortable fit.
Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. In addition, implants give patients the confidence to smile, eat, and engage in social activities without worrying about how they look or if their dentures will fall out.
2. Long-lasting and reliable.
With proper care and maintenance, implants last as long as conventional restorations on teeth, with predictable outcomes.
3. High success rate.
Well planned and cared for dental implants generally offer ‘survival rates’ comparable or better than other teeth replacement options. The success rate for properly maintained dental implants is 95%. And, as implant technology and techniques improve, so should their success rate.
4. Improved ability to eat and chew.
Dental implants are anchored in your jaw bone just like natural teeth.
5. Improved facial and bone features.
Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework.
