Advantages of Dental Implants

If you have broken, missing or heavily decayed teeth, you can have them replaced with dental implants, a more natural and permanent solution than dentures or bridges. Through the Center for Oral Surgery & Implantology, Newton Dental Associates will be able to provide patients in need with dental implants to preserve jaws and reduce bone loss.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth anchored to your bone with an artificial root, typically a screw that will eventually fuse to the jawbone. Unlike removable dentures or bridges, implants give a more natural look and feel and can function as well as natural teeth. 

Benefits of Dental Implants

Functionality & Longevity

Unlike other teeth replacement options, you will have full chewing power completely restored with dental implants. While dentures can become loose or may need to be removed while eating, implants are secure and can use just as much force. In addition to being able to eat normally, you will be able to brush and floss with ease in order to preserve your gums and implants. While bridges and dentures may require replacement every 10 to 15 years, with proper care many implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be bio-compatible, eliminating the risk of rejection by the body and are engineered out of non-toxic titanium and zirconia. With proper care, they’ll never need to be replaced.
