“The most natural looking and feeling tooth replacement. Dental implants are an ideal option for replacing a tooth or teeth, and can be used for anchoring dentures or partial dentures.When you lose a tooth or teeth it can affect how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. You may also have difficultly chewing because of your missing teeth or your denture doesn’t fit securely. Dental implants give you the opportunity to smile, speak and eat again with confidence and comfort.”
Dental implants are high-tech in nature and are more successful and tooth-saving than bridgework or partial dentures. With an overall success rate of about 95%, dental implants continue to show improving high success rates in long-term studies.
Almost all dental implants are a titanium “root” that osseointegrates into your bone. A successful implant requires healthy gums and bone so it is imperative to have good oral hygiene at home and maintain routine appointments with us to stay free of periodontal disease and gingivitis.
Replacing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth. A missing tooth will cause shifting, tilting and crowding of other teeth creating subsequent problems. Implants also help prevent bone loss. Once a tooth is extracted you gradually lose the bone that was supporting the tooth’s roots. Once an implant is in place your bone heals into the implant and no longer resorbs.
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
