Hello and welcome to the brand new dental implants blog of MajorSmiles.com! For the longest time we have wondered what the best way to get the word out to our patients about dental implants might be. After months of debate, we finally decided that this blog was the answer we were looking for. We want our patients to know just what makes dental implants the best possible treatment for missing teeth and, to do this Dr. Chuck Majors is blogging from Bryan, TX to talk about what makes dental implants superior to other teeth restoration treatments.
A Better Solution for Missing Teeth
What sets dental implants apart from other teeth restoration treatments is the fact that they are fused to your jawbone, just like your natural teeth are. During the implant procedure, an implant fixture is placed in the empty spot left behind by your missing tooth. While it heals, osseointegration occurs, which is the process of your implant fixture being accepted by your jawbone and gums as a natural piece of your oral anatomy. This process is only possible because the titanium used to make dental implants is not recognized by your body as unnatural.
It is because of osseointegration that dental implants are able to provide such great replacement teeth. Thanks to this process, your dental implants should never get loose or move out of place because they are held permanently in position by your jaw structure. Other restoration methods, such as dentures, require a messy adhesive in order to have any chance of staying in place. And, even with this adhesive, it is still common for dentures to fall out of place, and they can even damage your remaining natural teeth in the process. This adhesive must also be bought additionally with your own money, by the way.
Another benefit of dental implants is the fact that they require no additional maintenance to stay healthy. You will merely be required to brush and floss your implants regularly, like you would with your natural teeth. And, even with this minimal amount of care, your implants can still end up lasting you a lifetime. Other restorations, on the other hand, need to be removed every night and soaked in a cleaning solution. This cleaning solution is yet another additional price you must pay. However, even with this extra care, these other restorations will still only last you about seven years before they will need to be replaced.
Call and Schedule a Consultation with Dr. Majors
As you can see, dental implants simply cannot be matched by dental bridges and dentures alone. This is because only the implant system allows for replacement teeth that function and feel just like natural teeth. However, if you use dental implants to support these other restoration treatments, then we can revolutionize these treatments with the same benefits boasted by dental implants alone. If you would like to learn more about the dental implant process and what it can offer, we encourage you to contact us and schedule a no-obligation consultation with dental implant provider Dr. Chuck Majors today. We are located in Bryan, but are proud to serve patients in both Bryan and College Station, TX.
