If you are missing one, many or all of your teeth, dental implants are the number one recommended solution to replace them. Although this solution will take longer to complete and will cost more, the benefits of teeth implants compared to traditional methods are vast. Dr. Justin Deckard offers all types of implant secured restorations to patients that suffer from missing or damaged teeth. His restorative dentistry office located in Washington DC utilizes the latest in dental technology and techniques as well the most progressive materials to give patients quality, precise results.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Closest thing to your natural teeth– Implants are the next best option to natural teeth. They will replace the entire structure of the tooth, including the root. Your smile will look and feel completely natural and no one will even notice it is a fake tooth.
Better for your adjacent teeth– Dental bridges require your adjacent teeth to be grinded down to accommodate the restoration. You are essentially degrading perfectly healthy teeth as well as adding stress to them. Replacing your missing teeth with an implant secured restoration will not involve using your remaining teeth.
Prevents bone loss– The bone will immediately begin to deteriorate when a tooth goes missing. Bone loss in the jaw will eventually lead to changes in your facial structure, adding years to your overall appearance. Jaw bone deterioration will cause the lips to fold in, the lower face to shrivel up, and deep wrinkles will develop around the mouth. Replacing teeth with implants will stimulate the bone and prevent bone loss keeping the facial structure intact.
High success rate– Dental implants have a high success rate. Usually when implants fail, it is because the patient was not in that great of health or they did not care for them properly. It is important to be very good overall health, be free of any oral diseases or issues, and be committed to good oral hygiene habits for a lifetime before getting teeth implants. The success rate for dental implants is around 98%. With proper maintenance and regular dental checkups with Dr. Deckard at his Washington DC dentist office, your implants can last a lifetime.
Less food restrictions– Traditional restorations, especially removable ones, will come with food restrictions. Many of those restrictions include healthy, nutritious food. Since implants are surgically placed and fuse with the bone, they are very stable and durable. You will be able to use more force to bite and chew your food therefore having little to no restrictions.
Offers a better quality of life– Dentures have a bad reputation for not fitting properly, slipping around in the mouth, and sometimes even falling out. Since implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone and will fuse with the bone, you will not have to worry about these embarrassing situations. Eating, speaking, and smiling will be easy and effortless since they are more durable and stable than dentures.
