With a success rate of 97.08 percent, dental implants are functionally and financially a great option to replace missing teeth. Not only does a dental implant look and feel like a natural tooth, it is also the strongest and most durable prosthetic. When considering implants, the health of the gum and bone is very important. Dental implants are not vulnerable to tooth decay since they are composed of strong metal materials such as titanium alloys and zirconia. This means dental implants can last many decades under proper care, unlike other prosthetics such as bridges and dentures that may need to be replaced every 5-10 years. Dental implants are a smart investment as you will not need to replace them nearly as often as other prosthetics.
