Dental Implants FAQ
2. Do implants work as well as natural teeth?
Dental implants function much better than removable teeth, (e.g. partials or dentures). Patients often comment that dental implants are so natural in appearance and function that it is like having their natural teeth back. Today's advancements make implants function within 90% of the efficiency of natural teeth in terms of both bite and feel.
In addition, dental implants are not susceptible to cavities, and because there are no nerves in implants they will not get sensitive or feel pain.
