Benefits of Dental Implants
Madison & Monona, WI

The staff of Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants reviewing some information next to a digital X-RayOverall quality of life is enhanced with replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth: With dental-implant-supported replacement teeth, the appearance of your smile is more natural and functions more like natural teeth. Dental implant solutions can give you comfort and confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating. For patients missing a single tooth or perhaps two to three teeth in an area, dental implant solutions provide a natural appearance and allow you to function as normal.

Many patients will forget which tooth has been replaced by a dental implant. For patients who utilize dental implants to support multiple missing teeth, such as with a denture, dramatic enhancements to quality of life occur, as denture users are able to eat most types of food, eliminate messy adhesives, as well as have improved speech, comfort, and appearance. Dental-implant-supported replacements for dentures are often more easily maintained and provide confidence in social situations.

Dental implants preserve the structure and integrity of the jaws

Dental Implant - Madison WIWhen teeth have been missing for a prolonged period of time, the jaw structure atrophies or shrinks in size, as would any muscle you have that has not been used. The presence of teeth or dental implants provides forces that stimulate the jaw to maintain its normal jaw structure. For patients who are missing all of their teeth and have dentures, jaw deterioration is accelerated by the pressure a denture places on the jaw structure. When teeth are replaced with dental implants, this supports the jaw structure and prevents it from deteriorating over time, as a natural tooth would.


Your smile is improved when replacement teeth look natural

When missing a tooth, particularly in the cosmetic zone (an area that people can see when you are talking or laughing), only dental implants provide a natural-appearing solution to missing teeth. The dental implant crowns emerge from the gumline as would a natural tooth, and this gives a natural appearance that allows the dental implant to blend in with your other teeth.

Dental implants have a long-term proven success rate compared to other alternative treatments

Dental Implants Monona WIWhen considering your options for replacing a single missing tooth, it is important to consider the long-term success rate of any option that you choose. Generally speaking, the two main options are a dental implant or a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a historical solution that reduces away natural tooth structure from the teeth adjacent to the empty space. These teeth are used as supports and anchors for the dental bridge which spans from one anchor tooth to the other. See the attached diagram. Unfortunately, while this is a simple solution for the replacement of a missing tooth, this process of removing the natural tooth structure and the difficulties associated with cleaning a bridge lend to a relatively low success rate.

Studies have shown that roughly 50% of bridges fail within 8-10 years after placement and that roughly 50% of the supporting teeth under a bridge need to be extracted within 12-14 years after the placement of a bridge, even if the tooth was healthy prior to having the bridge placed. Dental implants, on the other hand, do not involve damage or injury to the adjacent teeth. They are a free-standing solution to your missing tooth. Dental implants enjoy a very high success rate and in general enjoy a roughly 96% success rate after 10 years. Dental implants have been placed in the United States since the early 1980s and have been a mainstream solution for the replacement of missing teeth since the 1990s.
