Dentures can only deliver a small fraction of the biting force of natural teeth. With dental implants, patients can bite with forces close to that of natural teeth. Better chewing efficiency results in better digestion leading to improved health of patients
One fear, which denture wearers have, is that of their dentures coming out of their mouths when they speak. Implant supported prostheses are retained firmly to the jaw, allowing patients to speak with confidence.
Implant supported crowns and bridges can be made to look very natural, with excellent aesthetics, which greatly enhances the patient’s smile.
Implant supported dentures can be fabricated with reduced extensions, so that patients feel less bulk in their mouths while wearing their denture. With dental implants you won’t have your dentures slipping and sliding in your mouth again and you will enjoy excellent fitted dentures.
Advantages of Dental Implants over Dentures or a Bridge
Every way you look at it, dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth.
Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about displaced dentures and messy denture adhesives.
The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
Replacing A Single Tooth:
If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root
Replacing Several Teeth:
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots
Replacing All Of Your Teeth:
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
