What are the benefits of dental implants?

Many patients who are considering tooth replacement options are interested in finding out about the advantages of each option so they can pick the one best suited for their specific needs and desires. Dr. Matthew Church and the team of Washington Street Dentistry encourage patients to take the time to learn about one of the most desirable options in tooth replacement known as dental implants.

Dr. Matthew Church of the Washington Street Dentistry practice in Indianapolis, Indiana welcomes new and existing patients to his practice for examinations, cleanings, and restorative work including that of dental implants.

Dental implants are a functional way of repairing the smile after tooth loss and provide versatility that no other alternative can. Dental implants are often chosen over solutions such as full cosmetic dentures and dental bridges for many reasons.

Dental implants have the following benefits that need to be taken into consideration when it comes to replacing missing teeth and repairing the smile:

  • Dental implants can help in maintaining the bone of the jaw, allowing patients to maintain the bone necessary for avoiding the “sunken in” appearance of the mouth often resulting from denture use.
  • Dental implants are made of titanium metal, a metal that is biocompatible with the body and does not rust, break, or deteriorate.

  • Dental implants can last a lifetime. Many patients can maintain their dental implants with proper oral health care and enjoy them until their very last day.
  • Dental implants are strong as they derive the support necessary from the bone of the jaw.
  • Dental implants are stand-alone restorations and do not require adjacent teeth for support as dentures and dental bridges may.
  • Dental implants may cost more upfront, but they will hold their value over many years and often never require replacement or further attention from the dentist.
  • Dental implants can be used in a variety of ways, including holding dental crowns in place, providing an anchor for dental bridges, or for stabilizing full dentures that will not stay in place with more traditional methods.

I started going to Washington Street Dentistry when I moved to Irvington a few years ago. I relocated about an hour away and still make the trip down to see Dr. Church as this is the best dentist I’ve been to. The staff are great and Dr. Church has always done a wonderful job! My visits have always been painless and they always take the time to answer any questions I may have. I would highly recommend them!
