One of the greatest things about living in the 21st century is the fact that missing teeth can be a thing of the past. You no longer need to settle for gaps in your smile. Dental implants in Washington have become a popular option because they have so many benefits. One of them being that implants have an extremely high success rate of over 95%! But how do they achieve this incredible rate of success? Continue reading to learn a few reasons for dental implant success!

Better for Your Bones

Whenever you lose a tooth, the first thing that you probably think about is how this effects your everyday life. For instance, you aren’t the most confident about your appearance with one less tooth, and it can be more difficult for you to eat some of your favorite foods. Even if you opt for dentures, only a small percentage of your bite power is restored.

What you don’t think about is the fact that your jawbone is no longer being stimulated by regular chewing. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option out there that replaces the root of your missing tooth, allowing your jawbone to be stimulated by chewing. Ultimately, you are preventing bone loss in the long run. By choosing dental implants, you can gain upwards of 90% of your chewing ability.

Better for Your Other Teeth

Whenever you have a gap in your smile from a missing tooth, your surrounding teeth will attempt to move around in order to squeeze into this extra space in your smile. Ultimately this will cause your other teeth to shift or loosen, which could lead to tooth loss. However, when you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, this helps to keep your existing teeth in their rightful places so they can thrive as well.

Dental Implants Are a Product of Advanced Dental Technology

Dental implants are only possible because of precise placement. With the use of 3D cone-beam imaging to plan your implant placement procedure, your dentist is able to see the exact volume and density of your bones so that the implant placement can be planned out precisely before the start of your procedure. By locating the locations of sinuses and facial nerves and mapping them out with precise clarity, there won’t be any unexpected surprises down the road.

With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that dental implants are such a popular tooth replacement option. After all, their success rate is incredible. If you’re missing teeth, ask your dentist if you’d make a good candidate. You will have your smile back in no time!
