Replace A Missing Tooth
A single implant procedure can be used on a patient that is missing a single tooth. The dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone and serves as a permanent replacement for the lost natural tooth and its root. An implant-supported restoration helps to preserve the integrity of adjacent teeth.
Success Rate Of Dental Implant vs. Traditional Bridge
The traditional dental bridge has been around for decades and was previously seen as an ideal solution to replacing a missing tooth. As technology has advanced, the dental implant is now the optimal long-term tooth replacement option because it can last a lifetime. Research shows that a dental bridge lasts only 7-10 years on average and then must be replaced. This is due to the bridge being difficult to clean and therefore making decay of the crowned teeth eminent.
Replace Missing Teeth
An implant-supported bridge is a permanent option for a patient that is missing several teeth in a row. Unlike traditional dental bridges that are supported by damaging adjacent teeth, an implant-supported bridge is supported by titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone. These posts provide the utmost stability for the entire restoration.
Average Lifespan Of Tooth Replacement Options
For those missing multiple teeth, most do not realize how many options they have to replace those teeth. However, most last only a few years and do not offer many benefits. Dental implants are the only teeth replacement option that can last for 30 or more years. Partial dentures last only 2-3 years, full dentures last 5-7 years and a traditional dental bridge lasts only 7-10 years. Clearly, implants are the best choice from a long-term investment and benefits perspective.
Replace All Teeth
Full arch implants are an option in cases where all teeth are missing, or in such a condition that the full arch will need to be replaced. This restoration is customizable to match a patient’s facial structure and is permanently affixed to the jawbone, so it will never move out of place.
The ability to chew food is often taken for granted by those without dental problems. For people with dentures or tooth pain, chewing can be nearly impossible. Lack of chewing forces create a limited diet and many negative affects on health and social well-being. For those losing their teeth or currently wearing dentures, implants can drastically increase chewing ability. Someone wearing upper and lower dentures may only have the ability to chew at 10-15% of their youthful maximum. But with dental implants, chewing forces can be restored up to 100% giving you the ability to eat like you did when you were younger.
Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gum and are held in place by dental adhesives, implanted-retained dentures are attached to implants surgically embedded into the jawbone. This ensures that dentures won’t slip out of place when eating, speaking, or laughing. This restoration can use either a ball or bar attachment and details should be discussed with your dentist before the procedure to decide which option is best for you. Implant-retained dentures will need to be removed at night as well as when cleaning the denture and gum area.
Success Rate Of Dental Implant vs. Traditional Bridge
An implant-retained denture can dramatically improve a patient's life. These advanced dentures can increase chewing ability, confidence and food choices as well as improve speech. According to implant patient surveys, those with dental implants are overwhelmingly satisfied with their implant therapy. Almost everyone who received implants would absolutely elect to do treatment again, were more confident and improved their dental health significantly.
