What makes dental implants such a great tooth replacement option?

Couple | Dental Implants Kew EastPatients of our Kew East, VIC dental clinic who have had dental implants often report the following advantages:

  • Dental implants look and feel very much like the natural tooth. Since dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, they become integrated into the body. Once the implant heals—usually over a period of several months, depending on the patient—and is topped with a natural-looking dental crown, people can barely tell the difference between the implant and their natural tooth.
  • Unlike with dentures and bridges, there are no eating restrictions with dental implants. Because dental implants are stable, chewing is easy—and no foods are off-limits.
  • The stability of dental implants means speaking is natural—unlike with dentures, which can slide out of please, even with denture adhesive.
  • Caring for dental implants is easy. Treat them as you would your natural teeth, brushing at least twice a day and flossing once. Although the implants themselves cannot develop decay, it’s still crucial that you protect the health of your gums around the implants. Be sure to visit your dentist twice each year for check-ups and cleans.
