4 Reasons to Seriously Consider Dental Implants


DentalImplantSmAfter your adolescent years, a missing tooth is no longer considered “cute.” As an adult, a missing tooth can be an embarrassing inconvenience and a long-term oral health problem. In fact, a missing tooth is an issue so serious that your dentist and dental hygienist will likely urge you to have it replaced as soon as possible.

From your molars to your front teeth, each tooth has an important function and value. Without each tooth, you may look different, you’ll certainly feel different, and the quality of your oral health will steadily decline. There are plenty of options for replacing a missing tooth, but which one is best for you? Here are 4 compelling reasons to give dental implants some serious consideration:

  1. You’ll no longer have to live with a gap in your smile. If an injury, a cavity, or periodontal disease has led to the loss of a permanent tooth, you will soon learn that living with the empty space is more unpleasant than you might have imagined. A dental implant is the sleekest and most conservative way to fill the empty space.
  2. You’re fortunate to have access to the best technology in the history of dentistry. Today’s dental procedures for replacing missing teeth are significantly better than those of the past. The implant procedure is minimally invasive, biocompatible, and uncomplicated. Incredible technology is readily available in the dental office and readily available to you!
  3. The success rate for dental implants has skyrocketed over the years. Implant dentistry is highly successful and is performed regularly by dentists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons, and periodontists across the country—including Fairbanks AK. With a success rate that consistently surpasses 95%, dental implants are perfect for anchoring single teeth, bridges, and even dentures.
  4. Implants are perfect imitations of real teeth. No one can tell that you’re wearing an implant, and you might even forget about it yourself! From its appearance and function to the way that it fits into the jaw bone, a dental implant perfectly simulates a real tooth.
