Five Advantages of Dental Implants
Today’s dental implants are the go-to solution for our Port Melbourne patients with missing teeth.
If you’re not familiar with what implants have to offer, here are five benefits of investing in this state-of-the-art treatment.
They Resemble Real Teeth
Unlike restorations that fit over other teeth or clip in and out, implants have a “root” like design that rests in the bone and supports an individual dental crown. Next to other teeth, implants fall right in line with your smile.
Implants Are Made to Last for Life
When properly cared for, an implant can last for the rest of your life. That’s because it fuses with your body in a process called “osseointegration,” making it a permanent part of your bite. Titanium is a biocompatible material that’s frequently used in other surgical procedures, such as joint replacement.
It’s the Most Successful Treatment
Compared to other types of dental procedures, implants have the highest success rate (nearly 98%.) That means they’re even more predictable than routine fillings and crowns.
Replace as Few (or Many) Teeth as Needed
Implants are stronger than your natural teeth. We can use them alone for a single tooth replacement (with a crown) or in pairs for 3-4 tooth dental bridges. What if you’re missing all of your teeth? An All-on-4 or implant retained denture can restore your entire smile with as few as 2-4 implants per arch.
They’re Easy to Care For
Brush and floss your dental implants like they’re natural teeth. Since they’re the same size and general shape, you won’t need any extra hygiene aids to keep your smile clean.
