Benefits of Dental Implants

Benefits of Dental ImplantsDental implants are a method of tooth replacement where a supportive screw or rod is actually implanted into the jaw to form a new root for a new dental crown. Implants are also used to hold an entire bridge or dental plate when all of the teeth in an arch are replaced.

One of the benefits of implants is their longevity. Unlike a dental bridge, which may last from 5 - 10 years, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Implants look and function more like natural teeth. There is no need to worry about slipping when speaking, eating, or performing other functions. Because they are attached to a rooted device that fuses with the jaw bone, implants stay in place just like a natural tooth.

There is no need for special considerations when cleaning and caring for implants. Brush and floss like you would with your natural teeth to keep implants clean and surrounding gum tissue healthy.

Implants allow you to maintain your face shape and keep the bone tissue in your jaw healthy. When teeth are missing, the face may appear sunken in areas where teeth used to be. Implants help reduce the risk of degeneration of bone that often occurs with tooth loss.

If you are missing one or more teeth and are interested in learning more about implants, make an appointment with our West Hollywood dentist to learn more about the tooth replacement options that will be best for you.
