The Benefits of Dental Implants

It’s true that dental implants are the most costly option to replace missing teeth. But it’s also the most superior option. Investing in dental implants is investing in your oral and over-all health. The benefits of dental implants include:

Look and function like natural teeth: Dental implants are designed to fit, look, feel, and work just like real teeth. They provide a strong and stable foundation, allowing for comfortable chewing and a natural appearance. Your new implant-supported restoration will last a lifetime with proper care, closely mimicking the aesthetics and functionality of your original teeth.

Superior durability and longevity: Dental implants are more durable and have a longer lifespan than other missing teeth solutions. You will need to maintain and replace each of those options about every 5-15 years. Dr. Marckese will surgically place the implants in the jawbone, which will prevent bone loss and maintain facial structure. Your dental implants will last your entire life with proper care and maintenance.

Improves the appearance of smile and lower face: A face without teeth will be covered in wrinkles and appear sunken-in. These facial traits can add years to your appearance. Dental implants will fill in the gaps in your smile and help keep the natural shape of your face and lower jaw area.

Helps avoid bone loss associated with tooth loss: If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, that void can cause bone loss and deterioration in your jawbone. Dental implants are the only option for missing teeth that stimulates the jaw bone which helps stimulate bone growth. This will prevent bone loss.

Improves speech: Removable options for missing teeth oftentimes slip or do not fit correctly. This makes the simple task of talking hard and embarrassing. Dental implants are permanent and do not slip thus making speaking a lot easier.

Patients can eat food without restrictions: Also with removable options for missing teeth, there are dietary restrictions. With dental implants there are no restrictions on what you can eat since they are durable, stable and permanent.

Avoids further damage or decay of remaining healthy teeth: A tooth-supported dental bridge requires grinding down your healthy teeth in order to provide a place to attach the bridge. You’re essentially damaging your healthy teeth in order to provide a replacement for the missing tooth. A dental implant is surgically placed only the space where the missing tooth is located leaving your healthy teeth alone.

No worry of dentures slipping or falling out: The constant worry that your restoration may fall out while talking or eating is taxing. This leads to feeling uncomfortable in public or around other people. Dental implants are permanent and release a person from that constant worry.

What are the Downsides of Dental Implants?

While dental implants offer significant benefits, there are also several potential downsides that you should consider. Carefully weigh these cons against the pros and discuss them with your dentist. Doing so will help you make the best decision for your oral health. The disadvantages of teeth implants include:

  • Dental implants often cost more than other teeth replacement options
  • As with any surgery, there are risks involved with implant surgery
  • Treatment time is much longer than other missing teeth solutions
  • If you have bone loss, you will need additional treatment to qualify for teeth implants
  • Once you commit to implants, you must take meticulous care of your oral hygiene for life to prevent complications

Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Even though most patients will qualify for dental implants, everyone will need to undergo a thorough oral exam. You will need to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Marckese, who will review your medical history, take X-rays, asses your bone density, and perform an oral exam.

It is vital to have enough bone structure to support the implants. If you have some bone loss, you may need a bone graft. It is also crucial for dental implant candidates to have healthy gums, good overall health, a commitment to good oral health, and be tobacco-free.
