How Safe Are Dental Implants?

Tooth Implant Options in Skowhegan ME Area

Dental implants are becoming increasingly more popular than traditional dentures and bridges for several reasons. They are one of the safer options patients can choose from. The safety factor alone is why many people choose to replace their old dentures with new, state-of-the-art dental implants. Not only do they look and feel natural, but they also eliminate many of the problems denture wearers commonly face.

Implants Support Your Jawbone

When you lose a tooth (or teeth), your jawbone may begin to lose its density. With nothing to hold on to, the bone will start to erode. As more and more bone tissue is lost, the jaw becomes more fragile. With dental implants, the implant will strengthen the bone, making it more robust and more secure. The implant will hold the surrounding teeth in place, keeping them safe and reducing your risk of losing any more teeth.

Eliminate the Slipping and Sliding of Dentures

Traditional dentures may begin to show signs of wear and tear. When this occurs, they may start to slip and slide, causing lesions or blisters on your gums or other soft tissues. Over time, this can result in sharp edges that may cause profound irritation and may even lead to infections or abscesses. With dental implants, the denture snaps securely onto the posts. That makes it almost impossible for the dentures to shift when you are eating or speaking.

Resist Breakage and Are Extremely Durable

Because of how they are constructed, the dentures that snap onto the dental implants are very durable. They reduce the risk of wear and tear and are much harder to break than traditional dentures. They are made with the highest quality materials that are designed for long-term use. Since they are fixed directly onto the embedded posts in your jawbone, they are stable and secure. That reduces your overall risk of breakage.
