Implants: 3 Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

Implants have proven to be the best, longest-lasting, most reliable way to replace missing teeth or teeth that need extracting due to decay, infection or crowding.

Here are three reasons to consider dental implants:
  1. Dental implants have a high success rate for tooth replacement options. One reason to choose dental implants is because they are a great investment. A tooth replaced with a dental implant has a great long-term success rate, function well, are comfortable when eating, and cause no damage to adjacent teeth. You will benefit from the money you invest in dental implants; with proper dental care, implants will last a long time versus other treatment options that may need replacement after wear and tear.
  2. Implants Are Cavity-Free. Once a cavity has destroyed a significant part of a tooth, it becomes impossible to save the tooth. Dental implants have a longer lifespan than fillings, crowns, and root canals in a person who is prone to cavities. If you get cavities often and have a tooth with a questionable prognosis, ask us about the option of dental implants.
  3. Dental implants create a very natural-looking tooth replacement. Did you know dental implants are the only tooth replacement option implanted in your gum? While other options, such as dentures, rest on the gums or attach onto neighboring teeth like bridges, the actual body of the implant replaces your tooth’s root. This allows the visible portion of the replacement tooth to emerge out of the gums – just like a natural tooth!
