Pros and Cons of Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth, dental implants are one of several options you have to replace them. The procedure involves inserting small titanium rods into your gums and jawbone and then allowing to heal and integrate to the bone for several months before placing the porcelain crown. Although replacing your teeth with dental implants and mini implant dentures offer several benefits over regular dentures, it’s important to consider the pros and cons of dental implants before making a commitment to getting them.

Dental implants offer several important advantages to patients who have lost a single tooth, several teeth, or all of their teeth. Some of these include:

  • Aesthetics: The teeth attached to dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, making you feel more confident about your smile.
  • Comfort: With regular dentures, you must become accustomed to the feel and taste of plastic across the roof of your mouth. This isn’t an issue with dental implants or Snap in Dentures.
  • Functionality: Dental implants restore all of the normal functions of your mouth. You never have to worry about them slipping out of place or falling out when you speak, smile, laugh, yawn, or sneeze. Best of all, you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods.
  • Non-Removable: With dental implants, there’s no taking them out each night and soaking them in a glass with water and special tablets. Your new teeth can last up for many many years with proper attention to oral hygiene.

In the case that you need something immediate, you may want to opt for something other than dental implants. It can take up to six months between placement of the dental implants rods and rehabilitation for regular implants.

Since some patients don’t have adequate bone to support dental implants, may need to perform a bone graft before we can place the implants. This isn’t necessarily a drawback, but something you should be aware of before choosing the procedure.
