Benefits of Dental Implants Franklin & Marlborough MA

Dental implants are the next best thing when natural teeth are not necessarily an option, especially after a tooth loss. Dental implants are not short-term solutions to lost teeth but more like permanent teeth, even though they are artificial.

Our periodontist at Periodontal Specialists can restore your lost smile and resolve most of your dental concerns with dental implants.

The Strongest Tooth Replacement Option

Dentists have used dental implants for over 30 years to replace missing teeth. Several other options, such as dental bridges, can replace missing teeth. However, dental implants are the most reliable and strongest tooth replacement option.

Dental Implants Are Permanent

A dental implant typically comes in three parts.
•  We have the implant as the first part, which is a titanium screw that will act as the root of the artificial tooth. The implant is what our dentist inserts permanently into the jawbone with the primary goal of stimulating the bones and nerves to maintain the health of your jawbone.
•  We also have the abutment, which our periodontists will use as the permanent connection between the implant and the replacement crown.
•  Finally, we have the crown, the part of the dental implant that acts as the replacement, and it exists among the other natural teeth. The crown is made of porcelain, and its color is custom-made to ensure a natural appearance.

Titanium is Biocompatible

The implant is the most important part of the dental implant, and our peridontists will use titanium in its design. Titanium is a biocompatible material, meaning that it is not harmful to living tissue. Thus, there is a limited chance that your body will reject a dental implant. The osseointegration process, the fusing of the dental implant with your jawbone, will ensure the dental implant is durable and long-lasting, sometimes even stronger than the natural tooth.

Dental Implants Do Not Decay

Natural teeth are subject to several dental issues, including decay. However, dental implants compare even better to natural teeth because the titanium material they are made from cannot rust nor decay. The dental crown is also made of porcelain, another material that cannot be damaged.

However, you should maintain good oral hygiene because dental implants, like natural teeth, can cause bacterial infections. You should still brush your teeth regularly, floss, and rinse your mouth with mouthwash to keep away any dangerous bacteria. We also recommend regularly visiting our dentist to have a wellness check on your dental implants.

Dental Implants Are Versatile and Comfortable

Dental implants are a favored choice for replacing teeth, and their popularity is evident. They offer numerous advantages, some of which are unique compared to other tooth replacement methods.

Dental implants are versatile, compared to dental bridges or partial dentures. At our practice, we are not limited by how many teeth we can replace using dental implants. This versatility makes dental implants a suitable option for patients without teeth.

Patients also note significant comfort from having dental implants compared to other teeth replacement options, like dental bridges and full dentures.
