Dental implants require a larger initial investment than dentures do. This is no secret. Dentures are more affordable for the initial procedure, but they have far fewer benefits. They are less comfortable, less stable and must be taken out every night. Dentures are an option that must be thought about, long after you have left the periodontist’s office. If you opt for dental implants in Chester, NJ, you get a beautiful smile that looks and feels like your natural teeth. One of the most popular features of implants is that they deliver a relatively care-free restoration.
Why Invest in Dental Implants?
Permanence: Dental implants are a permanent restoration. Made to simulate your natural teeth, a single implant has a post that acts as a root, a dental crown, and an abutment that anchors the two. Once placed, no one will ever see you “without your teeth.”
Stability: Dental implants do not shift or move no matter how much you sing, laugh, or eat. They are absolutely secure and won’t require adjustments in the future as dentures do.
Prevents Osteoporosis: Tooth roots stimulate your jaw bone, keeping it healthy. When the root is lost, a process of bone loss begins. Fortunately, the posts of dental implants will serve the function of those lost tooth roots and protect your bone density.
Maintenance: Dental implants are never taken out of your mouth to be cleaned. They require the same brushing, flossing, and regular visits to your periodontist that your natural teeth do.
Durability: Your dental implants never need to be refitted. With proper care and maintenance, they can last you a lifetime.
The advantages of dental implants include comfort, convenience, appearance, and health. This is what has made them the gold standard in tooth restoration. Patients who opt for implants report a higher rate of satisfaction than with any other replacement option.
