There is more than one way to replace missing teeth. However, dental implants solve tooth loss in the most unique way and stand out as the best replica to your natural teeth. Implant dentistry has been used for half a century as an effective means of replacing one tooth or a full arch of missing teeth. Best of all, dental implants carry an exemplary success rate of over 95%!
The Dental Implant Difference
Dental implants work differently than a bridge or traditional denture. Instead of resting on the gum line, your dental implants represent prosthetic teeth that are anchored to your jawbone using a titanium screw. These biocompatible implants fuse to the surrounding bone to act as a reliable tooth root to support your crown or denture that is secured on top of the implant. Due to their surgical placement in the jawbone, dental implants offer unrivaled advantages compared to other forms of restorative dentistry.
Dental implants can help patients avoid the following complications:
- Bone loss/Premature Aging in the Face
- Irritated Gums and Ill-Fitting Prosthetic Teeth
- Dietary Restrictions
- Low Self-Confidence
- Extra Hygiene Steps
Factors that Impact Success Rate
While dental implants have been used for over half a century and they are known for their superior success rate, there are still factors that can make them fail, especially if it occurs during the critical healing phase of your dental implants.
The following are considerations you’ll need to take if you want your dental implants to be successful:
- Skill and experience of your implant dentist
- How often you visit your dentist for checkups
- How well you take care of your implants (daily hygiene)
- Presence of infection within oral tissues
- Quality of supporting bone
