There are several benefits of dental implants that make them preferable over alternatives such as dentures and dental bridges. Dental implants offer the only permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. This alone makes dental implants from our Fairfax office much more advantageous than other options. However, the longevity of dental implants is not their sole benefit.
Dental Implant Advantages
Dental implants are secured into your jawbone. Due to this, they prevent jaw shrinkage and collapse. Other forms of tooth replacement cannot prevent changes in the structure of your jaw. Only dental implants provide this important function.
Additional benefits of dental implants include:
- A natural looking end result
- A strong, reliable, and secure hold
- Prevention of tooth slippage
- Prevention of artificial tooth loss
- Full restoration of functional abilities
Dental implants are often the best choice, but this is not true for every patient. During your initial consultation with one of our Fairfax implant dentists, your candidacy for dental implants can be determined and all of your options can be discussed in full.
If you live in or around Arlington, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, Fairfax, or McLean, Virginia and would like to learn more about the advantages of dental implants, please contact Galleria Dental Aesthetics to schedule an initial consultation with one of our implant dentists.
