The Benefits of Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement
At Parkview Dental in Pembroke, ON, Dr. Munro and his team have helped many patients find a tooth replacement solution that fits their needs and goals. Once our patients learn all of the benefits that dental implants provide they soon realize there is no better choice for replacing one or many teeth.
Many patients decide to replace their teeth with dental implants because they are:
Durable and Stable
The process of osseointegration, in which the jawbone fuses with the implant fixture, is responsible for many of the benefits of dental implants, including their stability. Dental implants are meant to be as strong as real teeth and can tackle any tough food that comes your way. Patients have their natural bite pressure restored and keep neighboring teeth from shifting.
Safe and Long-Lasting
Dental implants have a high success rate, making them a safe and dependable tooth replacement option. They also have an average lifespan that surpasses dentures and dental bridges. In fact, the implant fixture can last a lifetime with proper care. Since it’s permanently placed, the implant and tooth restoration–single crown, multi-tooth bridge, or full-arch denture–won’t slip out of place the way other tooth replacements often do.
Natural Looking and Comfortable
Dental implants are designed to look and feel as natural as your real teeth, whether they’re used to replace one tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch. Dr. Munro will work closely with you to ensure that your implant-supported restoration is comfortable and blends in with your smile.
Dental implants revitalize the areas the jaw that have begun to weaken where the natural tooth roots are missing. Thanks to osseointegration, the bones in your jaw grow and heal while securing the dental implant in place.
By replacing your missing teeth you’re also preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of place, which helps protect the health of your entire smile.
Patients often feel self-conscious about their missing teeth which can prevent them from smiling and participating in social activities. But filling in those gaps with dental implants can help restore your confidence. You can rest assured that they look great and won’t slip out of place.
