Dental Implants are the most advanced and revolutionary option in tooth replacement. Before you let the cost difference in choosing dental implants over dentures scare you away, it is important to fully understand the significant long-term advantages that dental implants provide. You will likely discover that implant dentistry offers a much bigger return on your investment than removable tooth replacement options such as dentures or partials.

Dental implants are prosthetic screws made of strong titanium that are placed in the jawbone to take the place of missing tooth roots. Once they have been allowed to heal, the screws fuse to the bone and are anchored securely into place. Prosthetic teeth can then be attached to the implants to take the place of one tooth or more multiple missing teeth.

Perhaps the biggest advantage in choosing dental implants over dentures is the fact that dental implants are designed to be a permanent tooth replacement option. However, here are some additional reasons why patients feel confident in their decision to invest in dental implants.

More Natural

Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. With dental implants, you do not have to worry about clicking, popping or slipping like you do with dentures. Because a dental implant is nearly identical in appearance to your natural teeth, you can benefit from a confident smile all the time, which means your quality of life is significantly improved.

More Convenient

Dental implants are a long-term solution that does not require additional maintenance beyond routine brushing and flossing. You will not have to hassle with messy denture creams or the disruption of taking them out and cleaning them during the day like you do with dentures. Convenience alone may be enough to help you feel good about your investment.

More Functional

Dental implants allow full function when it comes to your teeth. They do not require eating or diet restrictions. Denture patients, however, tend to avoid foods that are harder to chew, which often eliminates a fiber-rich diet and forces them to consume softer carbohydrates that are more calorie dense. Long-term, these dietary restrictions can impact your overall health. Choose the tooth replacement option that produces both a natural smile and one that is fully functional at all stages of life.

It is important to note that not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD in Marietta can help determine if dental implants are best for you. Dr. Suway carries 25 years of experience in implant dentistry and provides the unique benefit of being able to both place and restore dental implants so that patients have comprehensive dental implant care in one convenient location.

By taking the place of missing tooth roots, dental implants can be used to provide support for dental crowns, bridges and even dentures. This revolutionary tooth replacement system provides for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. For many individuals who make the change from dentures to dental implant supported replacement teeth, this tooth replacement system is life changing.

If this sounds good, you might be wondering how long a dental implant will last. While it will vary from individual to individual, dental implants can last for a lifetime, with proper care. Typically, when a dental implant fails, it is due to improper home care or failure to seek treatment, when needed. Proper nutrition, overall health and other disease processes can also play a factor.

If you want to give your dental implants the very best chance of lasting for a lifetime, it is vitally important to practice good daily oral hygiene at home and to visit your dentist regularly for routine dental cleanings and checkups. If you experience problems with your implant or any dental problems at all, it is important to seek treatment immediately. In addition, eating a healthy, well-balanced diet and leading a healthy lifestyle can go a long way in protecting your long-term dental health.

Dental implants represent a significant investment that is well worth the cost for most individuals. If you do decide to invest in dental implants, you need to do all you can to protect your investment. If you would like to get more information about how to care for your dental implants or about dental implants in general, talk to a dental implants specialist in your local area.

If you are wondering if dental implants are right for you, you are not alone. Everyday, many people all over the world consider this highly effective tooth replacement option. Dental implants have been around long enough for most of us to hear about their high success rate and natural appearance and function. In fact, most dental experts now consider dental implants to be the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. That is because they provide for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.

Dental implants offer significant advantages over other, less permanent tooth replacement options including bridges, partial dentures and full plates. Most patients are candidates for dental implants as there are few medical rule outs. Even patients with bone loss can be candidates for dental implants. However, if significant bone loss has occurred, bone or tissue grafting may be required before dental implants can be successfully placed.

For most individuals, the decision on whether or not to get dental implants comes down to cost. While it is true that dental implants cost significantly more than other tooth replacement options, the benefits far outweigh the extra cost for most people. In addition, many dental and oral surgery practices offer in-house and/or flexible payment plans to help with the cost of dental implants. Other individuals take advantage of funds in their Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) to cover the costs.

The decision about whether or not dental implants are right for you is an important decision and one that should not be taken lightly. Your dentist or oral surgeon is the best person to help you determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants and whether or not they are the best fit for your lifestyle and your budget. If you have questions about this life-changing tooth replacement option, talk to your dentist or oral surgeon today.
