Dental implants could be the solution for missing teeth whether you have teeth that are loose and ready to come out, or teeth that have been missing for months, or even years.
Dentistry has come a long way, especially when it comes to dental implants. If you follow our Centerport Dental Blog, you will know that dental restoration no longer includes the implantation of bone, animal or human teeth.
My Downtown Portland dental practice can give you your life back with natural looking replacement teeth that are just as strong, if not more so, than your natural teeth.
Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth and are much better for oral health. With dental implants, you can kiss those dentures goodbye with a convenient solution to missing teeth.
What Can Dental Implants Do for Me?
Dental implants will last the rest of your life if your body accepts the implant. In fact, 98 percent of dental implant surgeries are successful.
Dental Implants Will:
• Last for the rest of your life
• Be more affordable than removable dentures over time
• Boost your self-esteem
• Improve your oral and overall health
• Allow you to enjoy meals
• Talk better
Although there is a 98 percent success rate for dental implant surgeries, teeth grinding, smoking and improper bites can trigger dental implant failure. Chronic health problems such as osteoporosis, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders can put patients at risk for dental implant failure. Poor blood supply to the area around the implant could deter healing. Certain medications can also cause implant failure. If you are in poor health, your body may not be able to integrate the titanium post into your bone. Infections near the site can also trigger failure. Sometimes implants can shift or move during healing. If your implant dentist doesn’t give the area, enough time to heal or integrate the crowns may not be able to stay put.
