Dental implants are rapidly becoming the new stars of the dental industry- especially here at our Cape Coral cosmetic dental office. Dental implants are the most predictable, long-lasting tooth replacement option in dentistry. Studies have shown a 97% success rate at 30 years after placement, meaning 97% of implants placed are still functioning 30 years down the road. No other restoration has that kind of success.
Dental implants feel and function just like a normal tooth. They replace both the root and crown portion of the tooth, so they do not rely on other teeth to support them.
Dental implants can be used to replace single and multiple teeth, as well as support dentures. Dental Implants also hold your bone level in place. When a tooth is lost, bone is continually lost over time in that area. This can create sunken areas in facial appearance where there is no longer bone to support your facial features, making patients appear older than they really are. This also weakens the jaw, putting it more risk for fracture later on. Dental implants can prevent this from happening.
Dental implants are the most natural looking tooth replacement dentistry has to offer. Benefits include:
- Improved appearance
- Improved comfort
- Improved speech
- Improved confidence and self-esteem
- You can eat better
Dental implants provide a strong foundation for biting and chewing and can rejuvenate your smile, giving you the confidence you need and deserve.
