There are many advantages to dental implants.
Dental Implants are the most advanced treatment that most closely mimics natural teeth in look, feel and function, such a speech and chewing. Unlike non-implant supported dentures, implant supported teeth will not move during a function. Dental implants minimize bone loss and further changes to the adjacent healthy teeth while preserving the facial contours and appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Dental implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%.
