The Top 10 Benefits of Dental Implants for San Antonio Patients

dental implants san antonioIf there’s one dental problem that will inspire a patient to make time to visit the dentist, it’s missing teeth. While many patients look to dentures and other temporary options as the solution, a dental implant just might be the better solution. Consider these top 10 benefits of dental implants for the patients of San Antonio dental implants dentist Dr. Emanuel F. Dehelean, DMD.
  1. Tooth implants are a permanent solution to a previously permanent problem. Dentures are temporary and removable while dental implants stay fixed in place.
  2. They look as good if not better than your existing teeth. After implanting the new root, a beautiful new restoration can be created with the right shade and shape for your smile.
  3. Dental implants will stay rooted in your jawbone as long as your other teeth – maybe even longer. With good care and maintenance an implant could last a lifetime.
  4. You can brush and floss an implanted tooth without taking it out of your mouth like a partial denture.
  5. You don’t have to worry about a tooth implant falling out while you’re talking or eating.
  6. The tooth restoration that San Antonio dental implants dentist Dr. Dehelean creates for you (usually a porcelain veneer) will resist staining better than your natural teeth and maintain its pearly white coloring.
  7. A tooth implantation procedure can be done in as little as two visits. You have to schedule two main appointments: one to place the implant into the jawbone and another to fit the artificial tooth restoration to the top of the implant abutment.
  8. Dental implants look more natural than dentures. Dentures fit over your existing gums and have a more “artificial” appearance. With an implant you’ll see your own gums when you smile.
  9. Your new tooth won’t have to rely on the support of your adjacent teeth, as is the case with bridgework. Because a bridge is securely to the teeth on either side, it is dependent on the stability of the rest of your teeth. A dental implant is independent of other teeth.
  10. You’ll probably forget you have implants in your mouth as time goes on. The only time you’ll remember you have an implanted tooth is when you get an X-ray.
