Dental implants restore your missing teeth and improve your jaw structure. They’re titanium cylinders surgically placed into your jawbone beneath your gums, where your tooth is missing. Dental implants replace the root of your missing tooth, supporting single crowns, bridges, and dentures. This innovative technology allows your replacement tooth to look and function like a real tooth.
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), dental implants have a long-term success rate of 97%.
Success relies on an assortment of factors. Although you don’t have to worry about issues like tooth decay, taking care of your gums is crucial in maintaining success with your implants. With good oral hygiene habits at home, like regular brushing and flossing, and consistent professional teeth cleanings, dental implants are easy to maintain and could last a lifetime.
Almost anyone missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth are candidates for dental implants; the only exception being growing children. Even if you suffer from bone loss due to gum disease or have pre-existing medical conditions, there are procedures dentists can perform to place implants. Masters Dental Group can evaluate your condition and diagnose a plan for your specific needs.
Dental implants are considered the gold standard for teeth replacement. Not only do dental implants improve your appearance and your confidence, they allow you to eat the foods you like without worrying about the consequences on your teeth.
Because your implants are made of titanium, they provide stability to your jawbone without damaging other teeth, and tooth decay doesn’t occur. While other teeth-replacement options can last only a few years to a decade, dental implants can last a lifetime.
With a prosthodontist on staff and a dental cone beam CT scanner on site, Masters Dental Group can see three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone that a regular x-ray machine cannot. Providing innovative technology while making sure your comfort is a priority, Masters Dental Group goes above and beyond to satisfy your dental needs. Call or book an appointment online to evaluate if dental implants are the right option for you.
