Benefits of Dental Implants – Trophy Club, TX

The New Gold Standard for Replacing Teeth

Dental implants consist of prosthetic teeth attached to a titanium post that is surgically embedded in the jawbone. These oral devices replace lost teeth and function in the same way.

Dental experts have successfully used dental implants to replace lost and failing teeth for over 50 years. This form of treatment is widely considered a highly reliable option, outshining endodontic treatment, resin-bonded bridges, and bridgework.

Candidates for Dental Implants

Implant candidates come from all ages. Anyone who has lost teeth due to damage, decay, and disease is eligible to receive an implant. Implants are a great choice if you are unable to wear dentures. Dr. Crumpton will work with you to determine if you can receive an implant, as well as which kind (there are many).

Treatment time varies depending on the patient’s individual needs. We should also note that you must have enough bone in the jaw to support future implants. If you don’t, you may need a bone graft or another treatment before we can begin the implant procedure.

What Advantages do Dental Implants Offer?

There are many advantages to dental implants. Here are some examples.

Improvements in Speech

Most people think of dentures as the most common and effective means of tooth replacement. However, dentures can fit poorly, slip, and even fall out, in addition to their other shortcomings. Denture wearers often struggle to speak properly. However, permanent dental implants won’t come loose, so if you opt for this option, you’ll completely avoid this problem.

Convenience

By functioning as normal teeth, dental implants completely remove the hassle and inconvenience of removable dentures, such as storage and adhesives.

Quality of Life and Self-Esteem

Missing teeth can negatively affect your appearance, self-esteem and quality of life. By restoring your smile, you can boost your confidence and have the quality of life you deserve.

Eating Becomes Easier

Dentures can slip and slide, making it harder to eat. But since dental implants act like real teeth, you can enjoy any food you like without struggling or suffering when you eat.

Enhanced Appearance and Comfort

Because implants have the appearance and feel of natural teeth and fuse with bone, they become part of your mouth and function just like real teeth. Removable dentures are often uncomfortable (as is having missing teeth), but implants are not.

Oral Health Improvements

Unlike tooth-supported dental bridges, dental implants don’t ask us to alter your other teeth. As a result, implants allow us to leave your teeth intact. They also promote better accessibility to the spaces in between your teeth. These are great boons for your overall oral health.

Long-Term Resilience

Dental implants are known for their durability. If properly cared for they can last a lifetime. Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day will go a long way toward preserving your implants for the long haul. Also, remember to come in for biannual dental check-ups and cleanings.
