Who can benefit from Dental Implants?

Dental implants can be a smart choice for adults of all ages, whether you were born without a tooth or have had to have teeth removed due to injury, infection or decay. 

The advantages

Here are four important advantages of dental implants, compared to alternatives such as dentures and bridges:

  1. You’ll look and feel great. Dental implants feel, look, fit and function like healthy, natural teeth. They’re so comfortable you don’t have to think about them. You brush and floss them just like you do your natural teeth – no need to remove them for cleaning. They also help you retain your natural face shape and smile.
  2. They’re built to last. Dental implants that are properly cared for can last many decades. Many other options, including certain types of dental bridges and dentures, may need to be replaced as often as every 5 to 10 years, requiring a more significant investment of time and money.
  3. You can live life with confidence. Your dental implants will be secure, so they won't slip or click when you talk, eat or laugh. You'll also find that your speech is more natural. With dental implants, you'll have the peace of mind to eat what you love, say what you want to say, be as active as you want and smile broadly.
  4. They protect facial bone and healthy teeth. Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to health issues such as jawbone deterioration. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that actually helps stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Getting dental implants as soon as possible after losing a tooth helps prevent bone loss at the site. Also, dental implants don't require grinding down adjacent teeth to anchor bridges or attach partial dentures.

Do dental implants make sense for you?

  1. Do you have one or more missing teeth?
  2. Do you have a bridge that needs to be replaced?
  3. Do your dentures affect your quality of life by slipping, clicking or keeping you from eating what you want?
  4. Do you have bite problems or pain because of a missing tooth?
  5. Do you want a treatment option for missing teeth that provides a permanent, long-term solution?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, dental implants are worth exploring.
