Dental implants have been widely regarded as the solution for missing teeth, and are going into 2017 as the number one solution patient’s are choosing for their problems. We want to cover today some interesting facts about dental implants that will make your jaw drop!
Dental Implants Cannot Get Cavities
Yes, you read this correctly. Dental implants are unable to get cavities, simply because they are not composed of the same anatomy that your natural teeth consists of. A cavity is a damaged area in your tooth that extends through your enamel and into the dentin. A dental implant is composed of a post, an abutment, and a crown, and a crown does not have enamel or dentin. It makes sense now right? You can’t get a cavity! Now you no longer have to stress about brushing right before going to the dentist for your checkup, only to get prodded at and learn you have a cavity. However, even though this may be great news for some people, you have to understand you still need to maintain dental implants. You can do so by brushing and flossing daily and maintain your oral hygiene.
Implants Are Not Painful
People come into our office and sometimes throw their dentures away right in front of us. That is because they have gone through the pain and discomfort caused by dentures and are grateful dental implants do not. Dentures may be a paperweight on your gums, causing inflammation and rubbing. It’s a pain just imagining the pain. However, dental implants are not the same as dentures. In fact, dental implants are embedded into your jawbone, so not only do they stay firm and secure, but feel as natural as your real teeth. This is great news for those struggling with their dentures.
Dental Implants Are Safe
Many assume that dental implants are not for them because they believe they do not qualify. That is not the case. Read here to learn more about being a candidate for dental implants.
