Benefits of Dental Implants

If you are considering dental implants, you probably have many questions.
While the subject of dental implants may sound complex, our team makes it easy to understand. The anatomy of our dental implants essentially mirrors that of natural teeth appearing and performing like the real thing. This is due to Archpoint’s state-of-the-art implant materials, which assure your new smile lasts for years and years to come. 

Better Aesthetics, Function, and Feel

One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is their superior esthetics. An implant mimics the root component of a tooth, which allows us to permanently attach a restoration without the use of crowns, clasps, or messy adhesives. Instead, the restoration is discretely cemented or screwed into place. This gives the appearance of a natural tooth. Our restorations are also fabricated using porcelain, zirconia, or another ceramic compound. These high-quality restoration materials can be shaped to match the texture of natural teeth. They also reproduce the light-reflective properties of tooth enamel. With dental implants, your restoration will be virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your natural teeth.

Implant-supported dentures also provide a natural appearance and long-term esthetics. Because they are implanted into the jaw, they will feel and function just like your natural teeth. Unlike dentures or other removable appliances, you never have to take out your implants. You will be able to eat, speak, and smile without worrying about embarrassing slips or discomfort. Removable appliances can cause discomfort while eating, issues with your speech, and a lack of confidence when you smile. 

Success Rate, Durability, and Convenience

In most cases, implant surgery is low-risk. In fact, most implant-supported restorations have a success rate of up to 98%. This is largely thanks to the process of osseointegration. During osseointegration, the implant and jawbone fuse together to form a powerful bond. This bond is responsible for the unmatched durability of dental implants. In many cases, an implant will withstand the powerful forces of your bite for many decades. Under the right care and maintenance, an implant can even last a lifetime!

Many people find dentures and other removable appliances to be inconvenient. These restorations must be removed for cleanings, during sleep, and to maintain proper oral health. If dropped, they may break or become warped. They also need to be readjusted, realigned, or replaced at regular intervals. These inconveniences can add up to be quite costly.

With dental implants, you can eat, drink, brush, and floss your restoration as you would your natural teeth. There is no need for special cleaning routines, readjustments, and other complications associated with removable appliances. 

Improved Oral Health and Self-Esteem

Osseointegration is also responsible for improvements in your oral health. The roots of your teeth provide physical stimulation that keeps your jawbone healthy and strong. When you lose one or more teeth, you lose the stimulation your jaw needs to avoid deterioration. If tooth loss is left untreated for an extended period, your bone will resorb back into the bloodstream. This can cause a saggy facial appearance and affect your eligibility for dental implants.

Because an implant fuses to the bone, it provides the physical stimulation your jaw needs to remain healthy while preserving a youthful facial appearance. No other restoration helps to preserve the bone in your jaw. In fact, other restorations can also cause damage to the adjacent teeth.

Many patients report an improvement in their self-esteem after they receive their implant-supported restoration. Implants can give you back a smile you deserve, and the confidence you want when you smile, laugh, and speak.

Ideal Candidate

Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas

If you have heard about All-On-4® Total Smile replacement teeth, you may be very interested in knowing if this solution is right for you. While it is true that many more people can take advantage of dental implants today than ever before, there are still some patients who are better candidates than others. If you have lost a number of teeth, dental implants may be a good option for you, but the only way to know this is to come and visit us for a consultation! Every person’s dental history is different, so we really do approach every patient on a case-by-case basis.

This being said, there are a number of factors that can indicate whether you are likely to be a good candidate for All-On-4® implants. Here are some of these different factors. You may still be able to have dental implants even if your situation does not involve most of these factors, so it is always wise to come in for a consultation.

You Have Lost Most of Your Teeth

If you have lost a good number of teeth and are likely to lose more, All-On-4® may be the best way of getting replacement teeth. The extraction surgery and implant surgery can both be done at the same time, so you will have one recovery period instead of several.

You Are in Good Health

As with any surgery, being in good health is important. There is always some small risk of complications when a person goes under sedation. The better your health is, the lower the risk of something unexpected happening. Furthermore, your recovery will be quicker with less concern about infection.

Being in good oral health is also important. If you have gum disease, especially advanced gum disease, you may have lost some of the bone in your jaw. This can make the All-On-4® procedure more difficult since the implants may need to be placed in different locations. The titanium posts act as roots for your new teeth requiring a good amount of support from the bone to hold the teeth in place.

However, even if you have lost a good amount of bone volume, this does not mean you are not a good candidate. Many people who have lost bone in their jaws are still able to get All-On-4® replacement teeth, and many do not even need bone grafts. This is because All-On-4® implants do not have to be placed in the same place in every patient. With careful study of your mouth, it is likely we will be able to find suitable implant sites.

What About Age? 

Age rarely plays a part in determining if All-On-4® is right for you. Of course, older individuals are more likely to be dealing with certain health issues than younger patients, but that does not mean implants are not an option. Anyone from teens to seniors can take advantage of All-On-4® replacement teeth.
