Five Reasons Why Dental Implants are the Best Tooth Replacement Option

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that anchor replacement teeth. Our doctors can restore a single implant with a custom crown, restore a complete span with an implant supported bridge, or stabilize a partial or denture with a few strategically placed implants. Because dental implants function like natural tooth roots, they’re widely accepted as the best tooth replacement option. Here are a few reasons why we recommend dental implants for our Ottawa-area patients.

  1. Longevity. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants, last most people a lifetime. When compared to bridges and dentures, which need to be replaced every 8 to 10 years, dental implants are the obvious choice.
  2. Success. The procedure is highly predictable, and 98% of patients who have received dental implants in the past 20 years are still enjoying them today.
  3. Comfort. A dental implants functions like a natural tooth, which means that you won’t suffer from the discomfort and sensitivity often caused by other tooth replacement options.
  4. Stability. Bone fuses to dental implants in a process called osseointegration, which means your implants become part of your natural tissues. This also prevents bone loss around and near the implant, unlike a bridge or dentures.
  5. Confidence. Dental implants eliminate the need for metal clips or brackets to hold them in place, so you can smile without worrying if anyone will notice that you have replacement teeth. In addition, you’ll never again have to purchase denture adhesives or endure slipping, clicking dentures.

The doctors at Smyth Dental Centre restore dental implants routinely and work in close relationship with implant surgeons. Following an initial consultation, we will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon for implant placement, and then secure your custom crown, partial, or denture in the comfort of our Ottawa dental office.
