Benefits of Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implants are the modern form of dental restoration, better than the old dental bridges. Implants are the preferred method for replacing missing or broken teeth. The benefits of dental implants include:
Longevity — Dental implants can last a lifetime, unlike other tooth replacement options. A dental bridge is only good for ten years, but it may need to be replaced after five. Dental implants require little maintenance to last the rest of your life.
Bone protection — Your natural teeth are rooted in bone to keep them secure when you chew. That bone can begin to deteriorate when it is exposed from the loss of a tooth. Deteriorating bone affects the adjacent teeth, too. A dental implant fills the hole where your natural tooth used to be and strengthens the bone.
Cavity free — Dental implants are made from materials that resist decay and cannot develop cavities like your natural teeth. Proper oral hygiene and professional cleanings are still necessary, but there will be no fillings in those implants.
Natural look and feel — Dental implants function just like natural teeth. You will not notice a difference in eating or speaking. Your natural smile will be enhanced by these strong, stable natural-looking replacement teeth.
No one likes to lose a tooth to decay or accident, but it happens. Dental implant restoration prosthodontists at SDNJ can replace that tooth and restore your natural smile.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Here are the answers to some questions you might have:
- How long do dental implants last? With expert installation and periodic adjustments, dental implants can last a lifetime.
- How does dental implant restoration work? Dental implants generally require a two-step process. The root of the implant is installed in the empty space, and the bone is allowed to heal around it. When this anchor is solid, the top of the implant, the part you see above the gum line is added.
- How long does dental implant restoration take? Depending on your unique situation, the length of time to complete a dental implant varies. The area where the implant will go needs to be cleaned out and any infection cleared up before implants can be installed. Depending on the bone density, the root of the implant may need to set for several weeks before the final crown can be installed. In some cases, with good bone density, the crown can be installed the same day the root is set.
