Facts about Dental Implants 

Dental implants are as strong and durable as your natural teeth. Your ability to chew and bite is better with dental implants than with dentures, bridges, or partials. The stability of an implant comes from the metal screw that is inserted into the jawbone. The jawbone will fuse to the implant and give it strength. 

Dental implants will last a lifetime if cared for properly. Like natural teeth, dental implants need to be brushed and flossed regularly. This helps care for the gum tissue surrounding the implant. Health gum tissue is essential to qualify for a dental implant. It’s essential not to smoke, which can also damage gums if you are interested in dental implants. In addition, dental implants are stain resistant as long as they are properly cared for. 

Bridges and partials put force on surrounding teeth, which can cause even more issues with those teeth. Implants don’t require any reinforcement and won’t damage nearby teeth.  

Dental implants do require more patience as the process to place the implant takes longer. If you need a bone graft, you will have to do that before the implant can be placed. If your jaw is strong enough, you won’t need a graft, but it will take time to heal once the implant is inserted. After the implant is stable, an abutment is added which will hold the crown. A permanent crown is the final step in the process.
