4 Benefits of Dental Implants Over Other Tooth Replacement Options

September 2, 2017

Patients who need to replace a single tooth or a full row of teeth may decide to put off making replacement plans out fear that these restoration services will be painful, uncomfortable, or deliver fake looking results. Dental implant supported tooth replacement offers comfortable, long lasting, natural looking dental restorations for patients missing one tooth or all their teeth. Keep reading to learn more about the top four benefits of dental implants over other tooth replacement options.  1 – Maintained Bone Density  Possibly the most important difference between dental implants and other tooth replacement options is that the treatments restore both the roots and crowns of missing teeth. Without stimulation from tooth roots, the supportive jawbone density decreases. Dental implants provide the necessary stimulus to keep the jawbone strong and healthy.  2 – Youthful Facial Shape In addition to providing the necessary stimulus to preserve jawbone density, a dental implant mimics the root system maintaining the soft tissue volume and natural facial shape. Think about the way a denture wearers face begins to sag or cave in over time. This is due to the diminishing soft tissue volume and lack of support to maintain the youthful, smooth facial shape. With an implant supported denture, you’ll maintain a young, healthy appearance.  3 – 95% Success Rate and Growing Number of Procedures  Many patients worry that their dental implant placement will fail because they’ve read horror stories online. However, years of innovations in the materials and methods used during implant restoration have lead to a 95% success rate even as the number of procedures increases by 500,000 cases each year. Additionally, a skilled dentist will take the necessary time to thoroughly examine your smile and review your health history to ensure you’re a good candidate before recommending this treatment option.  4 – Improved Stability & Longevity Because of the natural root-like structure provided by dental implant posts, implant-retained prosthetics offer significantly improved stability. This is especially true for denture wearers who typically experience about 20% restoration of chewing function compared with 70% or more that’s possible with an implant denture. Additionally, this improved stability leads to a longer lasting restoration that needs to be refitted or replaced less often than other dental prosthetics like removable dentures.

June 22, 2017

Treat tooth decay with dental crowns in Colorado Springs.You brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily, but it still was not enough to prevent a cavity. You are not alone as tooth decay is the most chronic disease in adults and children. This occurs when sugars combine with the bacteria in your mouth, turning it into acid. It slowly eats away at your enamel until a hole develops. Often, the issue is easily treated with a dental filling. Unfortunately, they often go undetected for too long, allowing it to progress. The hole will become larger and can begin to cause damage to the inner layer of the tooth. When this occurs, a filling will no longer be enough. You will now need a crown.
