Dental Implant Patients Report High Level of Satisfaction With Their Implants

As life expectancy has increased for the average American, so too has interest in maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle. When it comes to maintaining a high quality of life, diet is a huge factor. However, a missing tooth can affect a person’s ability to chew, thus limiting their diet and keeping them from obtaining vital nutrients.

At Epic Smiles in Conroe, we highly recommend dental implants as an effective treatment option for missing or cracked teeth. Especially since in recent years, there have been remarkable advancements in dental implant technology, and our Conroe dental office has been at the forefront in the implementation of these advancements.

Study Shows High Level of Satisfaction with Dental Implants

A recent study sought to find out how satisfied patients were with their dental implants 8-14 years after implementation. The study consisted of 587 patients at a specialist periodontology clinic who were asked to fill out a survey regarding their dental implants.

The questionnaire consisted of 19 statements or questions relating to how satisfied patients were with their dental implants. The average time that had passed since implementation for each patient was 10 years.

Researchers discovered that the majority of respondents (81%) reported high levels of chewing comfort with their implants. Additionally, an even greater number of respondents (94%) reported being satisfied or sufficiently satisfied with how their dental implants looked. Overall, the findings of the study suggest that patients have a high level of satisfaction with their dental implants. Here at our Conroe dental office, we have seen the same results of the study in our own patients, as they all have reported high satisfaction with the look and function of their implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Although we have seen an increased awareness in recent years of the importance of proper dental care, countless Houstonians still experience tooth loss. This can be attributed mostly to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury. In the past, the only treatment options available to patients sufferring from tooth loss were dental bridges and dentures. Thankfully, Epic Smiles of Conroe now offers a more effective option with dental implants.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made from a titanium post. At Epic Smiles, our Conroe dentists surgically place the titanium post below the gum line, laying a strong and stable foundation on which to place an artificial tooth. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of dental implants:

Dental Implants Increase Self-Esteem

Let’s face it, having a missing tooth is embarrassing. A smile that is missing a tooth is both unsightly and hard for anyone to not notice. This is why people with a missing tooth are often reluctant to smile. Constantly feeling self-conscious about one’s teeth can often lead to self-esteem issues. Thankfully, our Conroe dental office can easily resolve this issue by using dental implants to fill the gaps caused by missing teeth. In addition, the look, feel, and function of dental implants are exactly as those of healthy, natural teeth.

Dental Implants Improve Digestion

The first step in digesting food begins with chewing. Therefore, being able to properly chew food is imperative to healthy digestion. Missing teeth can impair this first step by hindering food from being broken down properly. As a result, essential starches and nutrients are not fully optimized. In addition, improper chewing can also make swallowing difficult, thus negatively affecting the entire digestive system.

Having a missing tooth is not only embarrassing, but also detrimental to digestion. However, dental implants give you a smile you can be proud of, while enabling proper chewing and digestion.
