Experience the Benefits of Permanent Tooth Replacement
Built to Last a Lifetime
Dental implants can last 40 years or more when cared for properly. While you may need to replace the restoration at some point, implants can typically provide a lifetime of benefits.
Improved Oral Health
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can prevent your jawbone from shrinking, a natural effect of tooth loss. This preserves your appearance and remaining teeth.
With an implant-supported restoration from Dr. Wilson in Fayetteville, AR, you can experience the peace of mind that comes from knowing your restoration will stay in place in all types of situations.
Tooth Loss Becomes More Common as We Age
Factors That Affect Dental Implant Treatment:
Jawbone atrophy occurs when there are no tooth roots present to stimulate the jawbone. This can compromise the stability of your dental implants. Bone grafting may be needed to establish sufficient jawbone tissue.
Smoking can increase your risk of serious complications, including dental implant failure. Any type of tobacco use impair your body's ability to heal properly.
Gum DiseaseGum disease can affect the underlying tissues and have a serious effect on your oral health. Untreated gum disease can compromise dental implants.
Serious Health Conditions
General health conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders can also affect your oral health and heighten your risk of dental implant complications.
