Hello and welcome to the new Dental Implants blog of Marc J. Beshar Dentistry! For a while now, we’ve been looking for a fun and convenient way to get the word out to our patients about dental implants and what they can offer. Dental implants are quickly beginning to replace dentures as the go to treatment for missing teeth, and it’s time that our patients finally learned why. Today, Dr. Marc J. Beshar is blogging from Manhattan, NYC to talk about exactly what it is about dental implants that makes them a superior treatment than dentures. With this information, we believe our patients will see that there is finally a better treatment option for their missing teeth.
Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants in Manhattan
The main reason why dental implants offer a much more comfortable and reliable treatment for missing teeth is because, much like your natural teeth, implants are directly fused to your jawbone. During the implant procedure, an implant fixture is placed in the empty spot left behind by your missing tooth. While it heals, a process called osseointegration works to integrate your implant fixture with the rest of your oral structure. This process works because titanium, the metal that implants are made from, is not recognized by your body as unnatural.
Dental implants receive many exclusive benefits because of osseointegration. For instance, your implants should never get loose or move out of place because they are held permanently in position by your jaw structure. Dentures, on the other hand, sit uncomfortably on top of your gums and can require a messy adhesive to have any chance of staying in place. Not only must this adhesive be bought on your own dime, but, even with it, your dentures can still get loose and can even damage your remaining natural teeth as a result. Once successfully integrated into your body, your dental implants will stay comfortably in place with no additional purchases needed.
Dental implants also require no additional maintenance to stay clean and healthy. You will merely brush and floss them regularly as if they were your natural teeth. And, even with this minimal amount of care, your implants can last you a lifetime. With dentures, you will need to remove them every night and soak them in a cleaning solution, which is yet another additional purchase you will need to make. Even with this extra care, your dentures will still only last you about seven years before they will need to be replaced.
Call and Schedule a Consultation with Dr. Beshar
As you can see, dentures alone simply cannot match the treatment that is offered by dental implants. Now, this doesn’t completely remove dentures as a viable treatment for missing teeth. By using dental implants to support dentures, we can provide our patients with a way to get the best of both worlds. If you would like to learn more about why you should use dental implants for your teeth restoration treatment, we encourage you to contact us and schedule a no-obligation consultation with dental implant provider, Dr. Marc J. Beshar, today.
