What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Missing teeth don’t just interfere with your appearance: Gaps slowly cause the adjacent jawbone and teeth to deteriorate. That’s why repairing a missing tooth as soon as possible is so critical to your overall oral health. More patients than ever are opting for dental implants for permanent, attractive results.

A dental implant actually consists of two parts: the implant itself and a prosthetic crown. Bridges and dentures only feature an artificial tooth, but the dental implant is surgically placed in your jawbone, meaning it functions much like a natural root, providing structure and stability to your jaw.

The benefits of dental implants are many:

  • Your jaw retains its full strength and function.
  • There’s no risk of an implant falling out or becoming loose.
  • The results are incredibly natural-looking.
  • Your adjacent teeth are not affected.
  • No special cleaning regimens are needed.
  • The results are permanent.

While dentures and bridges remain excellent options for those who may not be good candidates for implants, Dr. Frye feel that dental implants are a superior solution in most cases.

Dental implants don’t just restore your smile, they also improve your quality of life. If you’re missing one or more teeth, it’s time to learn how dental implants are revolutionizing oral health.
