Following the introduction of dental implants into the dental world, there is no longer a need to suffer from uncomfortable or ill-fitting dental restorations. Dental implants are permanent replacements that are both natural looking and very functional. Due to the artificial replacement of the natural tooth and root, implants look and feel like your natural teeth and offer the same stable force for biting and chewing. With good oral hygiene habits, dental implants should last for a lifetime.
Dental implants are an investment, true; however, in terms of longevity and comfort over time, implants are less expensive than many other solutions. Dental implants are very dependable, with a 98% success rate, offering a lifelong solution. Compared with dentures or partials (which can be loose and unstable) or bridges (where the cement can be washed out and attract cavities) implants provide a permanent solution that is both functional and natural in appearance.
