Dental implants are often the best alternative to restore a healthy smile and bite function. Bridges and crowns can contribute to bone deterioration and are often difficult to clean. Tooth-supported treatments generally last only 5 to 10 years, but will eventually need to be replaced. Dental implants can restore jawbone integrity, let you enjoy your favorite foods regularly, and are very easy to clean. They just require normal brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
This technology can replace one tooth or multiple teeth. They are often the best permanent solution for people who have failing teeth and other dental problems. Additionally, this type of treatment has a very high success rate for patients. About 98% of implants last for the rest of a patient’s life, where root canals, bridges, and other replacement options typically need to be addressed 5 to 10 years down the road.
