Dental Implants – Washington DC Dentist
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants replace the root of the tooth. Implants form a strong foundation for permanent (fixed) or removable replacement teeth. They are made to match your existing teeth for a seamless appearance.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Unlike dentures that require removal, dental implants eliminate the embarrassing need to remove your dentures.
- Improved Appearance and Self-esteem
- An improved appearance always leads to more self esteem. Dental implants will make you look better and feel better by letting you smile again.
- Easier Eating.
- Dentures have been known to slide when eating certain foods. Dental implants allow you to enjoy your food with confidence.
Dental implants are also very durable and can last many years. With proper oral hygiene they can last a lifetime. They do not require the reduction of other teeth, as required by a bridge. More of your own teeth remain intact because they do not need to be altered to support the implant.
The success rate of dental implants depends on the placement in the jaw, but some implants can have a success rate as high as 98%.
