Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. Through the process of osseointegration, the titanium used in your dental implant biologically fuses with your bone, spurring bone growth to strengthen your jawbone, and ensuring lasting results. The implant essentially plants new roots in your jaw to help maintain your facial shape and provide long-term bite stabilization.
Would you rather make a one-time investment in permanent tooth replacement or replace your bridges or dentures every 7 to 15 years? Implants may involve a higher investment on the front end, but they also provide a much greater return over the life of your smile. With proper care, implants are designed to last a lifetime.
Dental implants are shaded and custom-shaped to fit naturally in your existing smile. In terms of beauty, strength, and function, the only difference between your real teeth and dental implants is that they're not real.
Unlike the teeth you were born with, modern implants do not decay or get cavities. Bacteria and food particles still need to be brushed away to maintain healthy gums, but oral hygiene is much easier as implants behave like normal teeth. Also, unlike a tooth-supported bridge, dental implants do not require reducing other teeth to support the implant. With more of your teeth left intact, implants lead to better long-term oral health.
Dental implants offer a cost-effective, long-lasting, health-focused, and beautiful solution for missing teeth. If restoring your smile is something you’ve considered, the Watt Antelope team would love to offer you a complimentary implant consultation.
