Considering tooth replacement? Dental Implants could be an option for you
Dental Implants are one of the best treatment options for replacing a missing tooth. This blog discusses the benefits of using dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants can last a lifetime if the patient takes great care of them. It is recommended that the patient attends appointments with one of our hygienists twice a year, as well as annual checkups with Professor Ironside, and remains on top of their general oral hygiene at home. A few ways to maintain excellent hygiene can include:
- Flossing – once a day
- Brushing – twice a day
These simple steps can help dental implants last longer.
Over the years, there has always been a dark, grey cloud hovering over the safety of dental implants due to pieces of metal being inserted inside of your mouth. As the technology used for dental treatments improves, the worry of dental implants disappears.
Here at Ironside Advanced Dental, the dental implants are created from a biocompatible material which has been used for the past 30 years and is accepted by the body.
One of the main benefits of dental implants is that they function in the same way as your natural teeth. This means that post-treatment, you can continue to eat all the same foods including meats and other tough, chewy foods, as dental implants offer great biting pressure.
The biocompatible material that is used in the dental implant acts as a strong and sturdy tooth root, which happens when your jawbone fuses with the implant. This process, known as osseointegration, gives the implant the stability and strength to support replacement teeth.
