When a tooth is lost, you know that you’ll have to think about replacing it. Thinking through your options can seem pretty overwhelming when you consider the very different solutions. We try to ease this decision making by offering our advice and expertise, but ultimately it is still your decision. One restoration we always come back to is the dental implant because it is such a great, natural restoration, but it has other advantages as well!
Other restorations are ok for a while, but they aren’t quite up to par with a dental implant. There are many differences, but one of the major differences is that other restorations won’t last nearly as long as a dental implant. At most, you might get 15 years out of a restoration. When you consider the rest of your life, 15 years isn’t very long. You need a solution that will be permanent.
The Implant Solution
A dental implant is a permanent solution. Once it goes into your jawbone, it is there to stay. We might need to replace the crown, should it break, but that is a completely pain free procedure. The titanium implant will fuse with your bone through a process called osseointegration. The result is a secure solution to a missing tooth.
For a secure solution that will last you for the rest of your life, we recommend investing in a dental implant. This restoration replaces not only the crown of your tooth, but the root as well.
