Five Important Dental Implant Facts

Dental Technology, Oral Health

Are you weighing your tooth replacement options? Investing in dental implants is one of the longest-lasting and cost-effective answers to your missing tooth needs.

If you’re not all that familiar with our Phoenix dental implants, here are five important perks you need to know about:

  1. As Few as Four Implants Can Support a Full-Arch Prosthesis.

Instead of wearing a full denture, an “All-on-4” appliance can restore all of your upper or lower teeth at one time. Since implants are stronger than teeth, they’re able to support immense amounts of weight. That means place them at strategic points in your jaw allows for a full-arch prosthetic option.

All-on-4 implants are a permanent part of your smile. There’s no removable or bulky “plate” to work around.

  1. Dental Implants are Safe for Your Existing Teeth.

Conventional tooth replacements like bridges mean that Dr. Babak Behbahani has to reshape the healthy teeth adjacent to the missing one, so that the restoration can sit on top. As a result, virgin teeth require full-coverage restorations when they’re otherwise intact.

Implants stand independent of your teeth, so you don’t have to reshape or alter their healthy structure. Rather, the implant can set side-by-side your tooth without anyone knowing the difference.

  1. An Implant Helps You Look Younger.

When you lose teeth, it causes your facial features — like your lips and cheeks — to appear sunken in and aged. Plus, the bone around your missing tooth starts to shrink, making your jaw thinner and shorter

By getting same dental implants installed, you can prevent the look of sunken facial features before they start! Plus, implants encourage healthy bone levels.

  1. Getting an Implant is a Minimally-Invasive Process.

Surprise: getting dental implants is a minimally-invasive procedure. A little local anesthetic is usually all that’s needed. Most of our Phoenix implant patients tell us that their appointment was easier than having a tooth pulled.

Being minimally-invasive also goes back to the fact that implants are safe for your surrounding smile. Instead of compromising teeth that don’t require treatment, Dr. Babak Behbahani can focus on the ones that matter: the teeth that need to be replaced.

  1. Dental Implants Can Last for Life.

The average life expectancy of a dental implant is…your entire lifetime. The integrity of implants allows them to withstand decades of everyday use. And since implants have a 98% success rate, you can expect your investment to be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made for your smile.

The key to keeping your implants for life is through daily home care. Just brush and floss them as if they were natural teeth!
