Forget Dentures – Affordable Implants Are the Best Solution

Dental Implants

For many who are missing teeth due to gum disease or accidental injury, a dental implant may be the answer. Unlike dental bridges that may damage adjacent teeth and dentures that rest on top of the gums, full dental implants are permanently attached to the jawbone where they support a realistic artificial tooth. Affordable dental implants can give many people a new smile that will last for decades.

Why Implants are Preferable to Dentures and Bridges

Dentures can slip, make embarrassing noises, cause irritation, and limit a person’s diet. A partial denture may also cause damage to adjacent teeth; in some cases, these teeth may be lost. Up to 30 percent of teeth located next to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture fail within five to seven years. Dentures may also cause bone loss in the same area where teeth are missing. Fixed bridges often require healthy teeth to be reshaped or cut down.

Best Candidates for Dental Implants

Even people with bone loss, existing dentures and partials, or preexisting medical problems like high blood pressure and diabetes are often successful candidates for dental implants. Smoking lowers the success rate, but does not disqualify a patient from the procedure. Some people develop complications from dental implants that may be related to genetic factors. Patients with a personal or family history of problems with implants should inform their periodontist, dentist, or oral surgeon. Most dental implants function perfectly 20 years after placement by an oral surgeon. Given their overall success rate of 95 percent, and 50 years of research to back up the statistics, dental implants are frequently the treatment of choice for almost anyone who is missing teeth.
