Dental implants are a fascinating type of dental technology that allows for severely damaged, decayed, or missing teeth to be replaced with fake teeth that are strong, durable, and look perfectly natural. Many patients can benefit from dental implants and implant-supported restorations, such as implant-supported dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. Here are some of the main benefits of dental implants:


Unlike other, more conventional tooth restorations, implant-supported dental restorations eliminate the need to manipulate any surrounding healthy teeth or involve them in the treatment in any way. With dental implants, only the affected area is treated, adding stability and functionality without fixing them to the surrounding teeth.


By replacing missing teeth and acting as natural tooth roots, dental implants significantly reduce the attrition of the jaw bone which, in turn, can lead to the recession and increased fragility of the jaw. Instead, the titanium posts screw into the underlying jawbone, stimulating regrowth for a strong, functional smile.


Implant-supported restorations are permanent (fixed), and as such, they are more stable and secure, providing greater and more natural functionality and comfort. You won’t get the same amount of functionality with any other dental restoration, such as a dental bridge or dentures.

These are only three of many important benefits of dental implants. Put together, it is easy to see that this type of dental treatment can and will significantly improve not only the patient’s oral health, but also their general health. Dental implants promote an overall better quality and enjoyment of life! Ready to get started? Contact our family dental clinic in Orléans, or book an appointment with us online!
