Why is a dental implant one of the most successful treatments in dentistry?

In the last two decades, the dental implant has become the most widely accepted treatment to replace missing teeth. The treatment is more effective than traditional dental bridges because it replicates the natural tooth most closely. The implant is placed exactly in the same position as the natural tooth. Over a period of time, the implant integrates with the bone quite naturally and performs the same function as the natural tooth.

Another major advantage with an implant is that it does not compromise the adjacent healthy teeth in any way. Unlike bridgework, an implant is a standalone solution, and does not need any support from neighboring teeth. Furthermore, the results with an implant are much more long-lasting than any other procedure. A well-placed implant can last for a lifetime if the patient’s general oral health remains in good condition.

Success rates with dental implants range anywhere between 90 and 95 percent. The few dental implants that fail may be due to the fact that proper treatment planning was not conducted and the patient was not a good candidate for the implant. If the bone in the area of the implant is insufficient or the bone density is weak, the implant may not sustain for a long time. Similarly, if the dentist places the implant at an inappropriate point, which is not the position of the original missing tooth, the implant may not succeed.

Therefore, the dentist’s expertise and vision to comprehend the patient’s oral condition is crucial to the success of a dental implant. It is an intricate procedure that must be performed only by a qualified dentist with a successful track record of performing dental implant treatment. So the patient must do their proper research before choosing the dentist to perform this procedure. If the dentist is good, the chances of success with the dental implant treatment are very high.
