Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dentures are no longer the only solution for missing or damaged teeth! Dental implants are a high-performing, near-permanent fix that has made the lives of thousands of Canadians better. 

A dental implant operation involves attaching a prosthetic tooth made of porcelain or zirconium (dental crown) on a titanium screw that serves as the root of the tooth (implant). The implant is then inserted into the gum, where it will fuse with the jawbone over time. While this may sound painful, a local anesthetic is always applied so the discomfort is minimized. 

Dental implants are a specialty at our southwest Calgary office. Our emphasis on sedation and biocompatible dentistry means that our dental implants offer multiple benefits—including some that your real teeth do not have! To learn more about our dental implants, schedule a dental exam at Dr. Korol Dental by calling 403-245-9099 or filling in the online contact form.

5 Reasons Why Dental Implants Are A Perfect Replacement 

Losing a tooth is never pleasant. But replacing it with a dental implant is not the worst outcome in the world. In fact, you may even appreciate its benefits once you get used to it. 

Here are 5 reasons you should seriously consider a dental implant if you have just lost a tooth:

  1. A success rate of over 95%: The vast majority of patients successfully undergo this treatment. This means that the implant acts like a real tooth in its form and functions and lasts more than 15 years. Indeed, the implant will usually fuse with the jawbone via a process called osseointegration. Not a mere extension, the implant becomes part of you. In 5% of cases, the patient encounters some medical complications during the osseointegration phase. The rate of failure is even lower among healthy patients. 
  2. A near-permanent solution: When properly cared for, a dental implant can last up to 25 years before it needs to be replaced. Dental implants do not decay, but the gums supporting them certainly can. That is why basic gum hygiene is the cornerstone for maximizing your implant’s longevity. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, using non-abrasive toothpaste, and not smoking all help in maintaining your gums. Healthy gums ensure that your dental implants do not fall out prematurely. 
  3. An imperceptible replacement: A far cry from the gold teeth you see in movies, dental implants almost look identical to real teeth. In most regular social interactions most people would never recognize the artificial teeth. Dental implants allow you to enjoy the functions of real teeth without compromising on your appearance. 
  4. Superior chewing and speaking ability: Dental implants have shown to decrease bone resorption, which is characterized by the breakdown of bone tissues. They help preserve the jawbone, allowing you to chew your food with greater strength and speak more clearly.
  5. Better facial and bone features: Preventing bone resorption also has the added effect of preserving the height of your jawbone, which grants you a more youthful appearance. Dental implants may also improve your facial features because they exert minimal pressure on your jaw. 

Dental Implants Could Be The Solution To Your Missing Teeth

Forget about dentures! Dental implants are everything you would ask from your existing teeth, and more. Dental implants have an extremely high success rate, imitate the looks and functions of real teeth for decades, and can even stave off bone resorption.
