What are the advantages of using dental implants for smile repair?
- Posted on: May 15 2020
Dental implants are a highly desirable solution for patients who have experienced tooth loss. These restorations are in high demand because they have a number of advantages when compared with other tooth restoration options available at the dental office. At Clear Lake Dental Care and Implant Center, Webster, TX patients can obtain a comprehensive examination to determine if they are an appropriate candidate and speak with our professionals to find out if dental implants are a good fit.
What is a dental implant?
Our team describes dental implants as titanium posts placed into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery to replace the root of a natural tooth. It uses the jawbone as a strong and sturdy foundation, and is restored with a crown, bridge, or denture depending on the number of teeth being replaced.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are chosen routinely because of the benefits they provide. Dental implants:
- Are versatile, replacing one or several teeth in a row
- Provide a natural-looking restoration
- Ensure strength and durability using the bone as a foundation
- Are stronger than any other tooth replacement option
- Are biocompatible with the body and will not rust or deteriorate
- Will last a lifetime if patients maintain proper care of their smile
- Are best for patients with proper bone structure
- Can anchor a full denture for optimum functionality
Most patients will find that a dental implant will suit their need, whether they need to replace one or more teeth in their smile. Our professionals provide a thorough evaluation including x-rays to find out if patients can move forward with this or other restorative treatments.
