Despite improvements in dental care, millions of people still suffer from tooth loss due to tooth decay, gum disease, injury, and other causes. In the past, the only viable treatment options were bridges and dentures; however, today, dental implants are a better alternative for people with missing teeth. Since dental implants look, feel, and function like regular teeth, they allow the patient to live normally and smile with confidence.
- Implants restore proper chewing function and so you can enjoy foods previously too “difficult” to eat.
- You feel confident that your replacement teeth won’t move or loosen.
- You regain the closest thing to the look, feel and function of your natural teeth.
- Throw away those gooey adhesives.
- Forget about unsightly partial denture clasps which place damaging pressure on remaining natural teeth.
- Eliminate irritated and painful gums.
- Improve your speech by eliminating or reducing the “fullness” of full or partial dentures.
- Replace missing teeth with the look and feel of natural teeth without having to “cut down” healthy teeth.
- Dental implants help stop the progressive bone loss and shrinkage of your jawbone by “mimicking” the roots of natural teeth.
- Dental implants are clinically proven with a success rate in excess of 90%.
Clearly dental implants are one of the finest treatment options dentistry has to offer. With their ability to improve the quality of your life and health it’s easy to understand why they have become the accepted alternative to traditional methods of replacing missing teeth.
Are dental implants successful?
With more than three decades of clinical experience and over a million patients treated, implants are highly successful. Our statistics confirm a success rate of nearly 95 percent for individual implants* – even higher for the bridges they support. Dental implants placed in our first patient 35 years ago are still functioning today!
