Dental Implants – Are They Right for You?

Dental Implants

For those who are missing teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, or other causes, full dental implants could be a perfect solution. Unlike dental bridges that rely on adjacent teeth for stability and dentures that sit uncomfortably on the gum line, a dental implant is surgically placed into the bone where it creates a permanent base for an artificial tooth. With today’s advanced dentistry, affordable dental implants are a possibility for almost everyone who is missing teeth.

Why Are Implants Favorable to Bridges and Dentures?

Dentures may cause embarrassment when they slip or make noises. They can also irritate sensitive gums and make it difficult to eat certain foods. A partial denture may cause damage to adjacent teeth; in some cases, these teeth may be lost. Up to 30 percent of teeth located next to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture fail within five to seven years. Dentures may also cause bone loss in the same area where teeth are missing. Fixed bridges often require healthy teeth to be reshaped or cut down.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Patients who have suffered bone loss or already have bridges or dentures are often good dental implant candidates. Even diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes won’t disqualify them. Some people develop complications from dental implants that may be related to genetic factors. Patients with a personal or family history of problems with a dental implant should inform their periodontist, dentist, or oral surgeon. Most dental implants function perfectly 20 years after placement by an oral surgeon. Given their overall success rate of 95 percent and 50 years of research that backs up the statistics, affordable dental implants are frequently the treatment of choice for almost anyone who is missing teeth.
