Are Dental Implants As Strong As Natural Teeth?

lady with dental implantsIf you are considering getting dental implants, you may wonder if they will be as strong as the rest of your natural teeth. Fortunately, the answer is yes. Modern dental implants bond directly with your jawbone, so they are as sturdy as–if not more sturdy than– your natural teeth. They are made using strong, high-quality material so that they will hold up well to regular use. Indeed, dental implants are a safe and time-proven procedure that has been used to help numerous patients restore the full functionality of their teeth, including a beautiful smile. Here’s how the durability of dental implants can help you:

Dental implants do not decay

Implants have one notable advantage over your natural teeth– they are not vulnerable to cavities. You do not have to worry about them being undermined by plaque and tartar. It also means that you don’t have to worry about your tooth contributing to common health complications of decay, such as heart disease and osteoporosis. If you are suffering from gum disease, then replacing a seriously damaged tooth with a dental implant can improve your overall health.

Dental implants help with jawbone density

One of the most serious effects of missing teeth is that it can cause you to lose jawbone density. When this happens, it can affect the appearance of your face and also make you more vulnerable to TMJ disorders as well as further tooth loss. Since this process can begin very rapidly after losing a tooth, the best solution is to have teeth replaced by your dentist as soon as possible.

Dental implants are made to last a lifetime

You might be wondering if you will need to have your implants replaced at any point. In most cases, the implant itself will be permanent. However, you may need to eventually have your crown replaced. This depends partly on where the implant is located– certain teeth are subject to more wear and tear than others. Replacing a crown is a straightforward procedure that your dentist can easily perform.
