are the preferred solution by dentists and patients for
missing teeth because of their natural appearance, durability, and capacity to
restore normal eating and speaking functions. Many people are familiar with the
basic facts about tooth implants,
such as the cost and procedure, but there are here are a few other interesting
facts you may not know.
1. Best success rate -
Tooth implants have a 98 percent rate of success, which is higher
than all other tooth replacement options, including dentures, crowns, and
bridges. After about seven years, dentures require replacement, and bridges or
crowns only last between five and 10 years. Even so, crowns, dentures, and
bridges may limit speaking, drinking, eating. Dental implants are a permanent
solution and provide the appearance and function of natural teeth.
2. Cavity-free -
Many people wonder if tooth implants are prone to cavities. Because they are constructed from
an artificial material, they are resistant to decay. However, it is essential
to keep the teeth and gums surrounding the implant clean.
3. Titanium construction -
Titanium implants, the
same material NASA uses, makes them lighter and stronger than steel. The result
is an implant that will last a lifetime.
4. Increases jawbone strength -
replacement options that don't fuse to the bone, such as dentures, can weaken
your jawbone. The biological fusing properties of titanium used in dental
implants encourage new bone growth.
5. Age is not a factor -
Dental implants are
available for patients of any age. A patient with good oral health and whose
teeth are finished growing is an ideal candidate for dental implants.
