Fact #1: Dental Implants Have an Amazing Success Rate

At a remarkable 98% global success rate, dental implants are arguably the best tooth replacement option for those that are looking to regain their complete smile. Since they are designed to look, function, and feel just like natural teeth, you won’t have to about the implants interfering with your speech patterns. Eating various foods won’t be an issue as well. Traditional replacement treatments such as dental crowns, bridges, and dentures are less likely to provide the same level of security and functionality.

Fact # 2:There Bulletproof and stronger than steel

Ok they aren’t really bulletproof but they are very durable and the best is, they won’t decay either. Even though people ask all the time if they will decay, they most definitely will not. This is due to the fact that the “tooth” part of the implant is a dental crown that is crafted from artificial material. The actual implant that is surgically placed within your jaw is made from titanium which is stronger than and will never corrode, so you can expect to keep your implants for a long time.

Fact #3:Implants Strengthen Your Jaw

Once you lose a tooth, the bone associated with that area will start to deteriorate causing your other teeth to shift out of place or alignment. Dentures, bridges, and crowns don’t contribute much to preserving that lost bone density. However dental implants actually help promote new bone growth since that area is stimulated by the newly placed implant.
