What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great option for replacing a missing tooth than dental bridges or dentures. In fact, implants are actually the replacement of your tooth’s root.
Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and are made of titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone. Currently, a dental implant is the only dental restoration that acts the same as your natural tooth.
Dental implants do not use adjacent teeth for anchors, like dental bridges. Implants do not rest on your gums like partial dentures either. As a result, your implant remains cleaner without places to trap food causing future decay.

Dental Implants vs Conventional Dentures
Many patients with dental implants describe a better quality of life than those that have fixed bridges or removable dentures. Dentures can make you feel and look older, cause embarrassment in social settings, and restrict the food choices that you can eat comfortably. Also, dentures do not last a lifetime like implants can.
Patients say their implants eliminate the frustrations and discomfort of conventional dentures. Implants allow people to enjoy a healthy and varied diet without food restrictions. With a boost in self-confidence, many people enjoy an active lifestyle shared with family and friends. For all these reasons, people with dental implants often say they feel better, look better, and live better.
Dental implants have a success rate of up to 75% with proper care. The success rate can vary depending on where in the jaw the implant is attached and the health of the bone the implant is placed into.
Unlike conventional dentures, dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone and cannot slip or move. Dental implants also help maintain the facial structure by preventing bone deterioration that would occur with missing teeth.
At the end of the day, it’s important to weigh all your treatment options in order to make an educated decision about what works best for you. Consult with your dentist to discuss if dental implants are right for you and if it’s a better option than conventional dentures.
What are Advantages of Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer many advantages over conventional tooth replacement options. They are more secure, stable, and provide a more natural feel than dentures or bridges can provide. Unlike other methods of replacing missing teeth, dental implants look and function just like real teeth. They do not require the adjacent teeth to be altered like in a bridge.
Dental implants are more secure and stable than dentures or bridges because they are attached directly to the jawbone. Since the implant is securely held in place, it eliminates the risk of slipping or causing discomfort that can often occur with dentures. In addition, dental implants help to preserve bone mass in the area of the missing teeth, which can help to prevent future jawbone deterioration.
Dental implants also offer a more natural feel than dentures or bridges because they are secured directly into the mouth. This helps provide a more comfortable, secure fit that can make speaking and eating easier.
Additionally, dental implants do not require any special cleaning products or techniques; regular brushing and flossing are all that is needed to maintain dental implant health.
Since dental implants actually become part of your teeth and jaw bone, they last longer and have fewer complications than bridges or partial dentures. Bridges can create problems for the adjacent teeth and often fail within 10 years.
Studies show that within five to seven years there is a failure rate of up to 30% in teeth located next to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture. Partial dentures can slip, create embarrassing noises while eating, and have a shorter life span. Properly cared for, implants can last your lifetime.
Has tooth loss left you considering bridges or dentures? A dental implant may be the perfect solution: a natural-looking, permanent restoration that looks and functions much like your own teeth.
