Interesting Facts about Dental Implants.

  1. Dental implants are nearly as strong as natural teeth.

    There is only one replacement tooth option that nearly matches the strength of natural teeth. It’s dental implants. These incredible advanced dental tools can give you back the biting force you lost years ago. Dental implants are so strong because they are made from titanium, a biocompatible material. Once placed into the bone, the implants heals around the bone, making it literally part of your body.

  2. Dental implant surgery is predictable!

    Anytime you hear the word surgery, you might think of something extremely complicated. The truth is that dental implant surgery is extremely predictable and successful. Dental implants are placed successfully about 98 percent of the time. That’s an amazing success rate for any procedure. There are a few requirements for having dental implants. But mostly, as long as you have enough jawbone to support the implant and are in good to decent health, you’re most likely a candidate. Most of our patients are amazed at the lack of sensitivity they experience after their dental implant procedure.

  3. Dental implants don’t get cavities!

    The biggest issue with natural teeth is that they can fail. Our teeth can fail because of wear and tear, gum disease, or cavities. Cavities weaken a tooth and need to be filled to ensure that the decay doesn’t spread. It’s a constant concern. That isn’t a problem with dental implants. Because the implants are made from titanium, they do not get cavities.

  4. Dental implants can improve your health.

    Having missing teeth is a full-blown health crisis. People without their teeth are at risk of cutting their life short by about 10 years. The reason is simple. Without teeth, you cannot maintain a healthy diet. Dental implants will allow you to eat and digest food much like you would with natural teeth.

  5. Dental implants preserve the jawbone.

    When the teeth are lost, the jawbone will recede. As the jawbone changes shape, so does the shape of your mouth. Jawbone recession gives people that sunken in look and causes wrinkles to develop around the mouth. These changes make you look much older than you really are. Dental implants merge with the bone and preserve the bone.
