Dental implants are a stable, comfortable, long-term solution for the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth. Although it is possible for an implant to fail or be rejected, the success rate of dental implants is about 95-98 percent. At our dental centre in Westmount, the experienced team of dental professionals has seen firsthand how implants have improved patients’ smiles, oral health and overall well-being.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are typically made with biocompatible titanium. Dental implants look, feel and function like real teeth; and provide many advantages, including:
Easier Eating— Implants restore full chewing power. Because dental implants function like your own teeth, you can eat your favorite foods with confidence.
Improved Speech— Traditional dentures can make speaking difficult. Dental implants allow you to speak properly without worrying that teeth might slip.
Improved Oral Health— Dental implants don’t require reducing adjacent teeth, as most traditional bridges do. Implants also facilitate natural bone growth, keep adjacent teeth stable and prevent them from shifting.
Improved Comfort— Unlike traditional dentures or partials, implants are attached to the jawbone and do not move.
Improved Appearance and Increased Self-Esteem— Many people who have felt self-conscious about missing teeth start smiling again because they feel confident and happy about the way they look after dental implants.
Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime— Strong and stable, implants are fused to the jawbone and are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. With proper care, a good oral hygiene routine, and regular visits to the dentist, implants can last a lifetime.
Our dental centre in Westmount successfully places and restores hundreds of dental implants each year, and can help you find the tooth replacement solution that best fits your needs.
