Your dentist has just informed you that you will need a tooth replacement. You are not too sure whether you should choose a crown, bridge, denture, or dental implant as your best option. You decide to go home and do some research before you make a final decision because after all, it is important to have a beautiful smile. After spending a few hours on the Internet doing some serious research you come to a conclusion to choose a dental implant. Why did you make this decision?
The many reasons why you chose a dental implant is because of the numerous benefits. The first reason is that dental implants are effective, safe, and a relatively pain free answer to tooth placement. True, there may be some bruising and swelling soon after the procedure but it will be short lived and after a couple of days barely noticeable. There may be the odd case where the pain seems excessive and if this occurs then it is important to call your dentist immediately.
Another key reason for choosing dental implants is that they are a long-term solution. A traditional tooth supported bridge will usually last for approximately 10 years but there will inevitably be a future time when they will need to be replaced. A dental implant, on the other hand, is a much longer term alternative. There may be occasional adjustments required but a dental implant can last for a lifetime when properly done and maintained. This is perhaps the number one reason why people choose dental implants over any other option.
