More than 35 million people in America are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth. If you’re one of those individuals missing a full arch of teeth (all your upper or all your lower teeth) or are about to loose all your teeth, dental implants provide an outstanding functional and aesthetic solution to dentures.
In many cases as few as four implants can be used to support a full arch of permanent teeth. If you already have dentures and you would like to achieve more stability or avoid the use of denture adhesive, then, as few as two implants could provide the solution.
Dental implants provide a number of advantages over conventional dentures that include:
- Improved confidence
- Improved chewing capacity
- Preservation of your jawbone and facial contours
- Improved ability to speak
- Reduced risk of embarrassment caused by denture slippage
Are Dental Implants as Strong as Natural Teeth?
In most cases, yes. The dental implant is actually considered stronger than natural teeth and provides full functionality. Following treatment you are able to start enjoying all your favorite foods while benefiting from healthy, aesthetically-pleasing replacement teeth.
Am I a candidate for Dental Implants?
If you’re battling oral health problems or have missing teeth, you are a proper candidate for dental implants. However, it is important that you must have good health before proceeding with dental implants. Conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and radiation therapy may affect how the implant fuses to the bone. Check with your dental specialist first and discuss any health concerns in your consultation.
