At the office of Innovative Dental By Dr. A in Philadelphia, PA, we receive questions every day about dental implants. To help patients who are considering dental implants, we’ve put together some of the most commonly asked questions along with their answers.
Dental implants are not susceptible to decay because the implant-restored dental crown is not a natural tooth. However, it’s still very important to maintain regular brushing and flossing to keep the gums healthy. Gum disease can lead to bone degeneration and could put the implant restoration at risk.
No. The crown is attached via an abutment to the implant which is firmly fused with the jawbone. There is no risk of an implant-restored crown moving or falling out like removable dentures. This means there is no reason for you to worry about being embarrassed in public. With dental implants, you can also brush and floss them just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are known to last a lifetime, as opposed to dental bridges or dentures that only last about 7-10 years. While some dental implants may need to be adjusted over time, they can last forever when properly placed and cared for.
No. Dental implants are the closest restoration to natural teeth. Since the implant fuses with the jawbone, the restoration is strong and stable. Your dental implants will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement. They are predictable and proven for long term, reliable success. Patients love dental implants because they look and feel secure and natural. Dentists love dental implants because they protect your healthy bone and teeth, so you can maintain optimal oral health.
If you are missing teeth, we invite you to contact Innovative Dental By Dr. A today for a consultation. During your visit we can answer any questions you have about dental implant restoration.
