Here’s How Dental Implants Hold Their Value
- Posted on: Dec 15 2017
When you put money into anything, whether a new car or home or some service, you want to know that you are benefiting from the value of that product or service. Dental care is no different. We are conscientious about providing our patients the personal, friendly care they expect. Furthermore, treatment options are also in line with our belief that value is key to long-term satisfaction. That is why we are so proud to offer dental implants to those who visit our Boca Raton office.
We discussed in a recent blog that tooth loss might be far more common than we imagine. To go hand in hand with the misconceptions about tooth loss is the acceptance of a completely different smile after extensive tooth replacement. This doesn’t have to be the norm.
Dental Implants as a Denture Alternative (sort of)
Dentures are a longstanding method of replacing teeth that have failed due to injury or poor oral health. This doesn’t necessarily demonstrate value or even success. In reality, it reflects the extent of progress that had been made in dentistry at the time this treatment was common. Today, we have a better option: dental implants. Here’s why more patients are turning toward this form of oral reconstruction these days:
- One of the biggest flaws in traditional dentures is the instability of these full-arch fixtures. Naturally, dentures have nothing to grab onto for security. So, they slip. They may slip right out of the mouth as fit diminishes over time. Dental implants can change this. That is because the tiny titanium posts become encased by bone in the jaw, making them as stable as natural roots.
- The integration of implant posts into the jawbone creates the potential for long-term performance by replicating the nature of teeth roots. These high-quality metal replacement roots may even outdo Mother Nature because they are naturally resistant to corrosion.
- Very little care is necessary to make sure dental implants remain stable and infection-free. Avoiding tobacco and staying consistent with oral care are two habits that greatly improve the long-term success of dental implant treatment. Compared to the removal and “gluing” and cleansing of dentures, dental implants are a breeze.
