If you have lost one or more teeth, you are probably considering the various tooth replacement options available to you, including bridges and dentures. While both of these options are convenient and affordable for many people, dental implants may be a better choice if you are looking for the most natural tooth replacement option available.
Dental Implant Benefits
Implants offer a few benefits that other tooth replacement methods can’t offer. These include:
Implants are made from strong materials that are accepted well by the body. These include a strong titanium post, sturdy abutment and natural-looking crown that is typically made from porcelain. Failure rate is low, as long as the implants are properly placed by an experienced dentist and adequately cared for after placement.
While some tooth replacement options are not particularly natural-looking, dental implants are known for their natural appearance. Whether you receive one implant or several, most people will not be able to tell that you have implants at all. They are also known for their long-term reliability and have a reputation for lasting 25 years or longer with good care.
The most unique, natural benefit implants offer is bone stimulation, which prevents degradation of the jaw bone and can’t be achieved with any other tooth replacement option. Since implant posts are surgically implanted into the jaw and eventually fuse to the jaw bone, they have the unique ability to stimulate the bone every time you chew. This is how natural tooth roots work as well. Other tooth replacement options that sit on top of the gum tissue and don’t make contact with the bone cannot achieve this same benefit.
