Are Dental Implants the Ideal solution to Replace Teeth?

June 7, 2018

With innovations in treatment techniques and materials, more patients than ever are good candidates for tooth replacement with implants, but it’s still not the right option for everyone. Your smile is unique, and your tooth replacement plan should be too. The reason more dentists are recommending dental implants today is simple. They’re the only tooth replacement solution that restores both the roots and crowns of lost teeth. In this post, we’ll talk about some of the many benefits of implant supported tooth replacement.

Benefits of Dental Implant Tooth Replacement

Before you move forward with an implant supported tooth replacement plan, your dentist will review all of the advantages of this option. Some of those benefits that make implant tooth replacement the ideal solution for many patients include:

  • Natural look, feel, and function – the tooth is replaced from the roots up, so your smile will be fully restored
  • Long lasting results – implant tooth replacement can last two decades or longer compared with five to ten years for traditional replacement teeth
  • Hassle free smile restoration – once in place, your implant restoration stays in place just like your healthy smile, so you can eat your favorite foods and brush as usual
  • Confidence boosting results – you know your implant restoration will stay firmly in place, so you can speak, chew, and smile with confidence in any situation

The Implant Process

Dental implant tooth replacement is a two phase treatment process. The initial phase of treatment is the surgical implantation of the implant post or posts. After your dental implant posts are placed, we’ll need to wait three to six months for them to fuse with the bone and soft tissue, recreating the lost tooth roots. Once the implants have fully integrated with your natural dental structures, you’ll return to have your replacement teeth designed and attached to the implant posts. Once in place, your restorations will look, feel, and function just like your natural smile.
