Science never ceases to march on. Decades ago, the only way that a person can replace his or her missing teeth was to wear crude dentures. Nowadays, dental implants, which can closely replicate the appearance and function of natural teeth, are readily available from trained and qualified dental practitioners.
The benefits of dental implants have, in fact, reached the consciousness of many patients worldwide, resulting to the continuous growth of the dental implants market. The PRWeb reports on this positive trend forecast as gathered from the Transparency Market Research Report:
“Increasing awareness for dental implants is one of the major factors driving global dental implants market. Implant techniques are widely accepted and executed by dentists worldwide. Continuous growth in the global market has resulted in an increasing demand for improved oral aesthetics, which has led to an increased number of dental practitioners performing dental implant surgeries. Some other factors driving the market are technological improvements, brand name recognition, and cost efficiency relative to alternative treatments.”
Residents of Downers Grove, Illinois are among the many who can enjoy the benefits of dental implants, thanks to the skills and expertise of reputable dentists in Downers Grove, IL, like Dr. Ronald Schefdore and his team at Your Celebrity Smile Cosmetic and General Dentistry. These dental practitioners contribute to the growth of the dental implant industry in the US, and understandably so. The benefits of dental implants go beyond aesthetics and into the improvement of one’s overall health.
As dental implants are constructed and function very much like natural teeth, they can fully restore a person’s oral digestive function which may be depleted with other teeth replacements like dentures and bridges. Likewise, the permanence of dental implants makes them more comfortable and convenient to use, compared to other teeth replacements which are always at a risk of falling off or detaching.
Dental implants involve more time and work from both the dentists and the patients. Multiple appointments are necessary, and surgery is involved. Bone grafts may also be needed in certain patients.
The process involves drilling a hole into the jawbone where the metal post is implanted. Once this is done, the bone and gums are given a few weeks to heal, after which the artificial crown is attached to the post. Because the whole procedure is rather complicated, only a qualified Downers Grove dentist can reliably perform the job. While pain and numbness may occur as the body adjusts to the new implants, the procedure is known to be very safe with a general success rate of 98%.
