4 Reasons to Invest in Dental Implants

Do you have missing teeth? Dental implants are one of the most effective ways to
restore your smile back to the highest level of health and function. Here are four
reasons why:

1. Implants are Non-Invasive to Other Teeth

Conventional styles of tooth replacements rely on the support of your existing teeth to keep them in place. For instance, partial dentures have small clasps that wrap around your neighboring teeth. And when it comes to dental bridges, the adjacent teeth have to be reshaped and altered in order for the ends of the bridge to fit over them.

2. Dental Implants Can Last for Life

Properly maintained dental implants are designed to last for decades. In most cases, they should last the life of the patient. The key is to care for them thoroughly and floss around them each day. Implants have the highest success rate of all modern restorations.

3. Implants are Stronger Than Teeth

When you need to replace several — or all of — your teeth at one time, you don’t need a 1:1 ratio of implants to missing teeth. Instead, our Encino dentist can use pairs of implants to anchor multi-tooth restorations. As few as four implants in total may be all you need to restore your upper or lower arch of teeth!

4. An Implant Mimics Natural Teeth

There’s no other tooth replacement treatment that looks, feels, and functions like real teeth. Since implants essentially reproduce the anatomy of a natural tooth, you’re able to eat and speak the same as you did before (or maybe even better.)
