Watch the videos below to see why conical connection implants like Astra Tech implants have the least bacteria micro-leakage of any implant system. That makes them one of the healthiest implant options for your bone and tissue on the market today.

Dental implants are used to replace tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (crowns and bridges) or removable (dentures and partial dentures) dental work. There are many advantages to dental implants, including:

  • Improved comfort. Because implants fuse with your bone they eliminate the discomfort of removable teeth.
  • Improved speech. Old or poor-fitting dental prosthetics can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip.
  • Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Because implants properly retain your false teeth they will function and feel like your own teeth. This will allow you to eat your favorite foods with confidence.
  • Improved oral health. Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving you long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
  • Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.
  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.

In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Success rates of implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%.
