The American Dental Association says that dentists place about five million dental implants in the United States annually. Why are these artificial teeth so popular and successful? At Seaview Dental Arts in Galloway, your skilled team of dentists use dental implants to fill single-tooth gaps, replace failing teeth or recreate an entire smile lost to decay, accident or periodontal disease. Learn the benefits of these amazing prosthetics here.

Dental implants are superior

That's quite a statement. However, it's absolutely true that dental implants from Seaview Dental Arts in Galloway mimic natural teeth in appearance, durability and functionality. In other words, they look and act like natural teeth, and they really last...for decades, in fact, if cared for properly.

The Institute for Dental Implant Awareness says that 97 percent of implant procedures succeed, and the devices are retained for years. In fact, over time, the bond between the titanium implant, or artificial root, and the jaw bone strengthens. Supporting bone improves in size and density and so does gum tissue--not so with conventional tooth replacements such as bridgework or partial dentures as they simply rest on top of the gums.

Additionally, prosthodontist, Dr. Bhavin Patel and his colleagues, Dr. Daniel Ciechanowski and Dr. Walter Finken, find dental implants to be very versatile in application. In other words, one titanium implant can support a metal alloy post and porcelain crown, or multiple implants can anchor bridges or even full dentures.

Additional advantages of dental implants

If you are interested in tooth replacement with dental implants, also consider these benefits:

  • Implant treatments--from evaluation to placement to follow-up care--take place in their entirety at Seaview Dental Arts.
  • Most procedures require locally-injected numbing medication only.
  • Your dental implant fuses with your jaw bone through a proven phenomenon called osseointegration.
  • Dental implants are as easy to care for as real teeth.
  • Dental implants stabilize and strengthen surrounding natural teeth.
  • Implants aid efficient biting and chewing.
  • Implants normalize your speech (no more slurring or clicking as with conventional dentures).

Also, some patients realize that a smoke-free life benefits the health of their dental implant sites. Tobacco can lead to an infection known as peri-implantitis. It resembles periodontal disease and can lead to implant failure. So, your dentists at Seaview Dental Arts encourage a smoking cessation program along with dental implant placement.
