Why Dental Implant Treatment is the Best Option to Replace Missing Teeth
You have lost a tooth, now what? The worst thing you can do is nothing. Why? The tiny space left can lead to bone resorption, poor oral hygiene, and shifting of the adjacent teeth. While dentures are common in replacing lost teeth, they are not the only option you have. At The International Center for Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we install natural-looking dental implants that can last for a lifetime with proper maintenance.
If you want to install dental implants, you may want to know whether you are making the right decision since implants do not come cheap. Do not second-guess yourself — you made one of the best decisions in life. Dental implants are the “gold standard” for teeth replacement for the following reasons:
- Looks natural: If you are scheduled for a dental placement in our clinic, cosmetic dentist Dr. Yolanda Cintron surgically inserts a titanium post deep inside your jawbone. After healing, the implant post will hold a dental crown or other prosthetic firmly for many years. The results? You will have a tooth replacement that acts, feels, and functions like a natural tooth.
- Bone preservation: When you lose a tooth, bone resorption follows, resulting in a sunken-in appearance. Thankfully, a dental implant can deter bone deterioration by stimulating the jawbone, just like the natural tooth. This preserves the structural integrity of your bone, meaning your face will not lose shape, or the nearby teeth will not start shifting into the empty space. This advantage is only exclusive to dental implants — no other dental restoration can correct jawbone loss.
- Preserves adjacent structures: Unlike bridges that can damage adjacent healthy teeth, dental implants are stand-alone restorations that do not compromise the nearby structures.
- Long-lasting: While dental implants are costly, they are worth every penny since they last for a lifetime — and with little maintenance. Flossing daily, brushing twice a day, mouth rinsing, and visiting a dentist are enough measures to ensure your dental implants last for many, many years.
