The Benefits of Dental Implants

If you are missing teeth, it’s easy to think you may never have a full smile again. The truth is, dental implants can give you an outstanding smile. They can restore full chewing function, and give you a smile you will be proud to show to your friends. Dr. W. Kyle Whitson at Concord Dental Group in St. Louis, MO, offers dental implants to give you the smile you deserve.

So, what’s so special about dental implants? Dental implants offer benefits that other tooth replacement methods like dental bridges and dental appliances can’t match. Consider that dental implants are:

  • Just like natural teeth, because the dental implant screw is placed in your jaw and becomes the “root” of your missing tooth; the dental implant crown is made of material that looks just like natural tooth enamel.
  • Firmly embedded in bone and will never move around, because implants are surrounded by bone so they are fixed in place; after a dental implant screw is placed, your bone will fuse with the dental implant and lock it in place.
  • Conservative treatment, because only the area of the dental implant is prepared; with dental bridges, the teeth on both sides of the bridge have to be crowned as attachments for the bridge.
  • Convenient and user-friendly, because you never remove dental implants, they become a permanent part of your smile. You also brush and floss dental implants just like natural teeth, so it’s easy to keep your smile healthy.

Very successful because the dental implant screw is made of titanium, a biocompatible material your body won’t reject; in fact, dental implants offer a success rate of over 95% according to the American Academy of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. They are the most successful surgical implant!
