For many years, bridges and dentures were the only solutions for people with missing teeth. But not anymore! The science and processes behind dental implants have advanced to the point that implants are the hands-down choice for tooth restoration.
With dental implants, you’ll never have to worry about taking a big bite out of a juicy apple! And your prosthetic teeth won’t feel unnatural in your mouth, as is often the case with other restorations. Implants are virtually the same as your natural teeth in feel and function.
This has been scientifically studied, and the results speak for themselves. Dental implants have a 95% long-term success rate. As with any dental procedure, complications can occur, but they are rare.
Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. In addition to feeling natural, they can be placed without having to alter nearby teeth. Traditional bridges, on the other hand, involve the teeth surrounding the implant, often resulting in damage to the teeth and a shortened lifespan. The other alternative, dentures, have to be removed and can cause an awkward feeling when chewing, smiling, or even just talking.
The entire process, from surgical placement of the implant to the first smile with your beautiful new teeth, is safe and easy compared to other procedures that involve surgery. Most patients report minimal pain or discomfort.
