Benefits of Implants

A new report put out by the International Journal or Oral and Maxillofacial Implants reveals that dental implants can save costs compared to other traditional alternatives and that they improve the quality of life. The study looked at long-term costs, primarily comparing implants to bridges. It concluded that for single tooth replacement implants tended to be more cost-effective than traditional bridges. When compared with full dentures, implant based treatment yielded higher initital costs, but that in the long term implants can be cost-effective as well. Furthermore when looking at dentures versus implants, those who had implants tended more often to have improved oral health and decreased health care costs.

What is an implant?
An implant is a small post that is placed in the bone socket where a tooth was extracted or where a tooth is a missing. After an initial healing period to ensure that the implant integrates into the jaw a connector is added to the implant, called an abutment, where then a crown can be attached. (See photo below for a comparison of a natural tooth and an implant).

The smile is an incredibly important asset, so when one or more of your teeth go missing to any of a myriad of factors, a patient's first priority is to have them replaced.Thanks for the post...
