What are dental implants?
Dental implants are synthetic structures, made of medical-grade titanium that are inserted into the jawbone and serve as roots to your missing teeth.
How do they work?
Once the implant is inserted into the jawbone, patients are assigned an appropriate healing time. Once the bone is tightly healed around the implant, usually several months, the replacement tooth/teeth (i.e. crown,bridge or denture) is/are secured to the implant. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.
Are dental implants for me?
A single tooth or even an entire arch of teeth that have been lost due to an accident, gum disease, failed dental work or tooth decay, can often be replaced with dental implants.
What are some of the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer patients restored function, the ability to once again enjoy a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods, and some even notice an improvement in speech. Because dental implants fuse with your jawbone, they won't slip, make noise or cause bone damage. In other words, they offer a permanent alternative to ill-fitting dentures or bridgework.
Will dental implants last?
Dental implants are extremely durable and can last a lifetime, if properly cared for. They require the same maintenance as your natural teeth - consistent brushing, flossing and regular visits to your dentist.
Your dental implants will make you smile more and many patients discover a boost in confidence and an enhanced appearance and quality of life!
Did you know that dental implants are often the best long-term treatment option for replacing missing teeth?
They are natural-looking and provide the same function as your natural tooth root.
