Missing or decayed teeth can wreak havoc on your self-esteem. First impressions are key in today’s world, with your smile playing a large role in forming that perception. If you find yourself hiding your smile from the world because of missing teeth, we can help. Innovative Dental By Dr. A, located in Philadelphia, PA, has built a practice focused on helping patients who have avoided the dentist for years. This has given us experience in restoring smiles that have multiple issues. Dr. A believes the cost of dental implants is well worth the difference it makes in oral health and emotional well-being.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts placed into the bone of your jaw. Over time, bone fuses with the post, creating a sturdy anchor for a replacement tooth. This creates the closest restoration available to a natural tooth root.
Why dental implants are worth the cost
- Long-term solution – Traditional bridges and dentures typically last five to ten years. Implants, if cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
- Preserves healthy bone – Missing teeth can cause deterioration of jawbone. Dentures won’t prevent this bone loss. Implants will prevent it because bone accepts the titanium post as part of the oral structure.
- Easy to care for – Unlike dentures and bridges, implants are cared for just as your normal teeth are. An excellent oral hygiene routine including twice daily brushing and nightly flossing is all that is needed.
- High success rate – Implants have a reputation for reliable, long-term success. We find it easier to predict outcomes and possible issues with implants than any other type of restoration method.
