When individuals in West Chester, PA begin considering tooth replacement options, there are many factors to take into consideration. The structure of the solution, long term stability, and cost are all important to evaluate. While no artificial restoration will ever completely replicate a biological tooth, dental implants are the closest structurally to a natural tooth.

The problem with missing teeth

The loss of permanent teeth is not just an aesthetic problem. Missing teeth impact your ability to bite, chew, and speak properly. Furthermore, many people are embarrassed by their smile, causing a loss in confidence and self-esteem. At Briglia Dental Group, we believe that dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement because they are a long term, natural looking solution that looks and feels as close to biological teeth as possible. 

What is dental implant treatment?

Dental implants differ from other tooth replacement options because they integrate into the jawbone. Traditional dentures sit on top of the gums and are kept in place with suction or adhesive and dental bridges are anchored by crowns on top of natural teeth. When a dental implant is placed into the bone, it acts as a replacement for the tooth root. Over time, the bone will fuse around the implant which is what make the dental implants such a stable solution. 

Once the implant is in place, the restoration can be completed with either a dental crown, bridge or denture.

Why dental implants are truly worth it

When it comes to missing teeth one of the biggest concerns long term is the loss of bone tissue. In the absence of a tooth root, bone degeneration will occur which causes remaining teeth to shift out of place and can also lead to a sunken facial profile, making individuals look much older than they are. If you have ever seen someone take out their dentures, then you understand how the absence of teeth can impact the profile. 

Because dental implants integrate into the jawbone, they mimic the role of a tooth root and stabilize the jawbone to prevent degeneration. With healthy at home oral care and professional dental visits, patients can enjoy their dental implants for decades to come. 

Other important benefits of dental implants:

  • They can withstand the natural force of biting and chewing. No more worrying about what they eat, often avoiding hard or crunchy foods. Dental implants allow patients to enjoy a variety of different foods.
  • They do not require repeated adjustments or replacement. Unlike dentures which need adjustments due to gum tissue and jawbone atrophy, dental implants are designed for permanent results.
  • The procedure is straightforward. Dental implants are an outpatient procedure that has a relatively short recovery period.

Candidates for dental implants

The good thing about dental implants is that many individuals can qualify as a candidate. Patients must be in good overall health as well as oral health and need to have sufficient bone density. If a patient has lost significant density due to disease, he or she may be eligible for a graft prior to receiving implants.
