How a Dental Implant can Permanently Restore Your Smile

A dental implant is a titanium post that gets surgically placed in the jawbone to provide a mount for replacement teeth. It looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth.

Beauty and Benefits of a Dental Implant

Along with improving your appearance and confidence, this tooth replacement option feels completely natural and lets you speak and eat with ease. While treatment may take several months for more complex cases, patients with simple cases are able to get same day dental implants. These same day dental implants offer maximum convenience with minimal treatment time. And since a dental implant is fused to the jawbone, there’s no risk of it slipping, which happens with dentures and bridges. So even though the cost of a dental implant is more than these other options, its comfort and permanence justify any extra dental implant costs. And since dentures and bridges can stress nearby teeth and fail to support the jawbone, there is a higher risk of both bone loss and dental decay. But a dental implant doesn’t cause those problems, which makes dental implant costs well worth it in the long run. If the cost of dental implants is a concern, see if your dentist accepts insurance or a dental discount plan like DentRite.

Sensational Success Rates

According to tooth restoration experts, the average success rate of dental implants is more than 95 percent. But since each person has different needs and concerns, the only way to know if you’re eligible for treatment is to have a dental evaluation.

Protecting a Dental Implant

Dental implants simply require the same good oral health habits as your natural teeth. This includes brushing at least twice a day, daily flossing, and seeing your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
