Four facts about dental implants that may surprise you

dental Implants windham nhTooth implants can provide a natural-looking and long-lasting solution if you have lost a tooth or teeth to decay, damage or gum disease. The procedure not only can give you back your smile, but also your ability to eat and speak normally. Here’s more you should know:

1.) The dental implant procedure is not new or experimental

In fact, dental implants are the most thoroughly researched procedure in the history of dentistry, and have been used successfully for over 50 years. Implants are considered a long-lasting and fairly conservative procedure for replacing missing teeth.

2.) Your implant is designed to last a lifetime

While no procedure is 100%, long term success rates for implants are practically that, ranging from 95-100%. With current technology employed by skilled dental professionals, along with proper care and regular check-ups, they should last a lifetime — with no need for replacement or repair.

3.) Implants do not require any special care or attention

Implants only need to be treated the same as you treat your natural teeth. But the same dental problems that arise from improper home care can also affect your implants. So make sure you brush and floss twice daily to prevent plaque build-up that causes tooth decay and gum disease. And of course, keep up your regular dental check-up schedule

4.) Implants can be used extensively enough to prevent you from needing dentures

Even if your parents and grandparents have dentures, you may never need them. Yes, It is true that some people are more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease than others, and so more apt to lose teeth. But even if you’ve already lost some or all of your teeth, or are about to, dental implants could be just the right option for you. Don’t let a family history of denture use stop you from making every effort to save as many of your natural teeth as possible.
