The Benefits of Dental Implants
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants really has more benefits than we could possibly list here. Not only do patients look better, their mouths function the way nature intended. Even better, and much more personal, are the emotional and social benefits.
Look more natural for a younger appearance
Won’t come loose and cause embarrassment during eating or speaking
Are permanent and do not require adhesives to stay in or need to be removed for cleaning
Allow patients to eat any food they like
Prevent bone loss and eliminate aging facial collapse
How Dental Implants Work
We start the implant process by replacing your tooth’s root and creating a support for the replacement tooth. To do this, a titanium post will be surgically placed into your gum and jaw. Titanium is used both for its strength and because, unlike other metals, your body accepts it and integrates it neatly into the bone, essentially making the post a permanent part of your mouth. Once the post is healed in place, we will replace the visible and functioning part of your tooth with an implant crown, designed to fit perfectly in your smile. Our implant crowns are not only beautiful, they are also created using the most advanced materials for durability and strength – even on areas that receive the brunt of your biting force.
If you need a lot of teeth replaced, talk to us about the possibility of implant supported dentures. These dentures snap right onto your implant posts and stay secure and comfortable all day.
