How will Dental Implants Benefit my Smile?
Many patients who are looking for the ultimate in cosmetic procedures may turn to dental implant surgery. Knoxville dental practice, Sequoyah Dental Arts, focuses on providing beautiful improvements to smiles in need. Dental implants are a commonly considered restoration that is used to replace teeth. They are implanted into the bone and topped with a dental crown to replace a single tooth, or may be used to work with specialized dentures for support. While some patients may consider partial dentures or dental bridges to replace their teeth, they may find that there are a number of benefits to choosing dental implants over other restorations.
Bone Growth Stimulation
When a natural tooth is missing, the bone underneath the gums may begin to deteriorate. By placing a dental implant, the process of osseointegration occurs, which is the stimulation of bone growth that helps to maintain the implant in its proper place over time.
High Success Rate
Dental implants are extremely predictable and have a very high success rate. Dentists find they work perfectly in a patient’s smile and are the “gold standard” in cosmetic restorations.
While being one of the most successful restorations, dental implants are also long lasting. Patients may pay more for dental implants upfront, but will typically have their implants for the rest of their life. Value such as this is unmatched by any other cosmetic procedure.
With other restorations, healthy teeth may need to be altered to place cosmetic pieces such as a dental bridge. Dental bridges can at times end up affecting the surrounding teeth as perfectly healthy tooth enamel must be removed to bond them in place. Dr. Foncea will try to avoid and minimize any damage to perfectly healthy teeth in the smile. Conservative ways to address missing teeth include the use of dental implants, as they are a standalone restoration that does not require the support of surrounding teeth to be placed.
