One of the primary goals of dentistry is to preserve the lifespan of your natural teeth. Sometimes a tooth becomes so damaged or diseased that it simply cannot be saved, in which case you may need to explore your options for tooth replacement. Our practice is pleased to provide dental implants to patients in Aurora, IL, and the surrounding community.
Why Are Dental Implants the Preferred Method of Tooth Replacement?
Dental implants are widely considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Consider some of the primary reasons:
- Implants are the only tooth replacement option that preserves your jawbone, preventing deterioration.
- Getting implants does not require any damage to your healthy, adjacent teeth. This is not the case with bridges and dentures, which require healthy teeth to be shaved down.
- Dental implants boast a success rate of roughly 95 percent.
- With the right hygiene and care, your dental implants can potentially last a lifetime.
