Are Dental Implants the Best Way to Repace Missing Teeth?

Dental implants stabilizing denturesDental implants have become an important advance in dentistry over the past few decades, and the procedure has also been recognized as the best solution for replacing missing teeth.

Before dental implant technology came on the scene, persons with missing teeth had few options. Depending on how many teeth needed to be replaced and where they were located, fixed or removable bridges and dentures were the recommended treatments. Because additional dental problems typically occurred within 15 years after fixed bridges or dentures were used to treat the problem, replacement was necessary. Dental implants have a much better record of performance, with the majority of implants still functioning well after 20 years or more.

New technology has made fitting dental implants much easier with the time involved in the process being much shorter than when implants were first made available. The fact that dental implants have a high success rate of 95 percent, and in addition they are as close to permanent as anyone can get in tooth replacement makes them a very good choice.

The latest dental implant technology now makes it possible for a patient to receive the dental implant, post and dental crown all in one visit. This is a vast improvement over previous procedures which required several visits and a period of time during which a temporary crown was worn. 3-D imagery and a virtual model of the patient’s mouth make it possible for the dentist to create the crown and prepare for the surgery to be accomplished in just one visit. The implant site still needs time to heal, but the patient suffers much less pain and can live a normal life.
