Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants give patients the freedom to smile with confidence, allow more comfort in social situations and the ability to enjoy the foods they love — but the benefits don’t end there. At Innovative Implant and Oral Surgery, we offer numerous options for tooth replacement, but few offer the advantages of dental implants. Individuals who want a natural-looking, lasting solution for missing teeth will appreciate the aesthetic appeal, convenience and durability of dental implant supported replacement teeth.
Advantages of dental implants
For more than 60 years, dental implants and implant-supported restorations have solved the problem of tooth loss while restoring functionality, oral health, and appearance. Our oral surgeons use the latest materials and modalities in dental implant therapy, helping our patients throughout Bucks County achieve the smile they deserve.
Explore the amazing benefits of dental implants, a practical alternative to dentures and bridges for permanent tooth replacement.
Implants promote jawbone integrity
Jawbone atrophy is one of the biggest concerns of missing teeth. When teeth and their roots are absent for extended periods of time, the jawbone tissue begins to shrink and dissolve. Over the years, the face takes on a sunken look, which can add years to your appearance. Dental implants – unlike traditional prosthetics – promote healthy jawbone because the titanium posts replace the function of tooth roots. Implants act as a natural tooth would, preserving your facial contours and preventing jawbone deterioration.
Improve your smile and appearance
Tooth loss is a source of embarrassment and anxiety for many. Dental implants, which are custom made to look, feel and function just like your own teeth, restore confidence to smile and engage in social activities without worry. Dental implants are indiscernible from your natural teeth and can improve aesthetics by correcting facial structure collapse that is common with tooth loss.
Enhance your quality of life
Dental implants pave the way for a happier life, one where you can eat, speak, smile and laugh with ease and absolute comfort. With implant supported replacement teeth you’ll never have to deal with messy denture adhesives, and irritated, sore gums are thing of the past. Eating will be an exercise in pleasure, since you can enjoy your favorite foods without discomfort or worry. Not only will your chewing power be restored, implants can help you speak more clearly.
Boost confidence and self-esteem
Implants are a life-changing investment in your confidence and self-esteem. With a beautiful, healthy smile, you are ready to take on the world, unhindered by the appearance or loss of function caused by missing teeth. Improved aesthetics, improved function and improved comfort are just some of the ways implants can have a positive impact on your confidence and life outlook.
Dental implants are a safe and proven tooth replacement solution
Thanks to major advances in dental implantology, implants are the safest and most successful option for tooth replacement. Studies have demonstrated a 95-98% dental implant success rate after 10 years in patients who maintained good oral hygiene.
Easy to care for
Of all dental restorations and prosthetics, dental implants are the most like your natural teeth. Oral hygiene is important, but not complicated. Simply brush and floss daily and see your dental professional every 6 months for a routine cleaning and check-up.
Long-lasting and cost-effective tooth replacement
Dental implants are securely fused to your jawbone, providing a stable and comfortable fit. The implant supported restorations will never decay, and with proper care and hygiene, can last 25 years or longer. While the initial cost of dental implants is higher than other prosthetics, they are a better value over the long-run, considering implants promote better oral health and don’t have to be replaced every 8-12 years.
Implants do not compromise healthy teeth
Preserve the integrity of healthy teeth with dental implants, which do not need to be anchored to adjacent teeth like a traditional bridge. Implants are placed directly into the jawbone, where the titanium posts replace the tooth root to secure the crown firmly in place. When a dental bridge is created, the neighboring healthy teeth are ground down to support the device, which compromises their structure and integrity.
