Why Dental Implants Are So Popular: The Top Reasons Patients Choose Them

Missing teeth can be a huge embarrassment and can also make it difficult to eat and speak properly. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you. Dental implants are becoming increasingly popular because they offer many benefits over other dental procedures.

Here are the top reasons patients choose dental implants:

  • Dental implants are permanent. Once dental implants are placed, they will stay in your mouth forever. They will not need to be replaced like dentures or bridges.
  • Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. No one will be able to tell that you have dental implants unless you tell them.
  • Dental implants are strong and durable. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
  • Dental implants can help preserve your natural teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants do not require that any of your natural teeth be removed.

Background on dental implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular dental procedures performed today. They are also one of the most misunderstood. Many people think that dental implants are a new technology, when in fact, they have been around for thousands of years.

The first dental implants were made out of seashells and date back to 600 AD. These early implants were used to replace missing teeth. In the late 1800s, dental implants made out of ivory were developed. These implants were more successful than the seashell implants, but they still had a high failure rate.

It wasn't until the mid-20th century that dental implants began to be made out of titanium. Titanium is a much stronger and more durable material, and it has a very high success rate. Today, dental implants are made out of titanium and they are one of the most successful dental procedures performed.
