If you have considered dental implants in the past and put them off. You need to know about the benefits and long-term advantages other patients have discovered after embracing this procedure so that you can understand what moving ahead will mean for your smile in the new year.

Benefits of Implants

Whether you are replacing a single dental implant or a multi-tooth span, implants provide many benefits that have led to patients adopting them over bridge work and partial dentures quite often. While there are good reasons different procedures work for different people, the rise in implant popularity is largely because:

  • They are permanent, unlike other options which do need to be periodically replaced
  • Dental implants are durable because they are anchored to the jaw
  • Your smile looks natural, with a profile that closely matches your old look
  • Implants are comfortable, and they feel like part of your body
  • They are also secure, so you can eat whatever you want without worry

How Implants Work

Implants are strong and durable because they involve two major pieces. The replacement teeth are made of durable ceramic, and they are custom made individually to give your new smile a natural appearance. The anchors are titanium, and they are set into the jaw for maximum strength and stability. When the replacements are fit to the anchor, the result is a superior tooth replacement that can be used for an individual missing tooth or a whole group of teeth. New procedures are even allowing for full arch replacement with implants.
