Long-Term Results With Dental Implants

Dental implants are a valuable tooth restoration solution because when cared for properly, they can last a lifetime. The titanium implant post fuses to the jaw bone to create a permanent and stable foundation. This replicates the root of a natural tooth and provides the same stimulation that the jaw needs to remain strong and healthy. Removable bridges and dentures are taken out when you eat and brush your teeth, but your dental implants remain in your mouth at all times. They never get removed and special rinses are not needed. Simply brush and floss your teeth regularly and maintain regular checkups with your general dentist to care for your replacement teeth.

Because the post fuses to the jaw, dental implants prevent the jaw bone from deteriorating. Dentures and bridges may cosmetically restore your smile, but they do not preserve the jaw bone. This can lead to significant bone loss over time, which can cause facial features to sag and adjacent teeth to shift out of position. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that preserves and protects the jaw bone by providing the necessary stimulation to keep it strong.

Removable dentures must be replaced about every 5 years, and many patients experience sores caused by ill-fitting oral appliances. Dental implants, however, fit and feel just like a natural tooth. The crown is designed to match the color of your natural teeth, making it indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. Dental implants are also known for their versatility. They can be used as a single dental implant to replace a single tooth, or multiple teeth using several implants or an implant-supported bridge. Your dental implant can last a lifetime with proper dental care, and you will enjoy both the health and aesthetic benefits of having a complete smile.
