Dental Implants

One of the primary reasons people choose dental implants is to restore their smile and give them confidence in their appearance.

MODERN DENTAL IMPLANTS

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a cosmetic tooth-replacement option that consists of a metal post that serves as a root, which is surgically placed into the jaw. On top of the post is a porcelain crown, visible in the mouth, which looks just like a natural tooth.

After placement, the post fuses into the jaw during a process known as osseointegration. After the post is fully fused, the crown is placed on the implant, replacing the tooth you have lost.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Many patients and dentists alike choose dental implants to replace missing teeth because they not only look like your natural teeth, but also feel like a natural tooth and function through chewing and biting like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and drink with confidence.

Dental implants are also durable, and with proper care and oral hygiene, they can last your natural life.

Another benefit of dental implants is that they can help you keep your other teeth by stimulating the area under the missing tooth. This keeps the jawbone healthy and intact and keeps the tooth in the opposite jaw healthy, too. Without dental implants, individuals missing teeth are at risk of additional tooth loss, bite problems and jaw issues later in life.

One of the primary reasons people choose dental implants is to restore their smile and give them confidence in their appearance.

All of these factors make dental implants incredibly popular: According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, more than 3 million people currently have dental implants, and demand for this tooth-replacement option increases year after year.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an excellent tooth-replacement option for individuals who:

  • Are tired of dentures.  After wearing dentures for years, many people turn to dental implants because their dentures fit poorly or feel uncomfortable. If you feel this way about your removable dentures, we can help give you a beautiful and healthy smile with a dental implant.
  • Want to replace a single missing tooth. Many people missing just one tooth choose dental implants to fill in the missing space in their smile.
  • Are missing multiple teeth. Missing multiple teeth can make many people self-conscious. Dental implants are an option to replace multiple teeth – in fact, a dental implant can replace up to four missing teeth (implant-supported dentures).

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer many significant benefits over other tooth-replacement options such as dentures and bridges. These benefits include:

  1. They look better. Dental implants are made of high-quality, durable porcelain that can match your natural teeth and blend right into your smile.
  2. They’re strong and durable. Dental implants, when taken care of through proper brushing and flossing, can last for decades.
  3. They prevent bone loss. Unlike other tooth-replacement options, such as removable dentures, dental implants can facilitate bone tissue growth.
  4. They allow you to eat normally. Since dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth, they will enable you to bite and chew like you usually would. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent and do not slip when you’re eating.
  5. They don’t impact your speech. And because dental implants are fixed in the mouth, they do not slip when you’re speaking or cause a lisp.
  6. They don’t impact other teeth. Unlike other tooth-replacement choices, like dental bridges, which require removing tooth enamel from teeth on either side of the gap, dental implants do not require the removal of healthy tooth structure.
  7. They’re safe. Dental implants have a very high success rate, making them one of the safest artificial tooth-replacement options out there.

Other factors that make you a good candidate for dental implants include:

  • Enough bone to support the dental implant (if not, you may require a bone graft to support the implant)
  • Good gum health
  • Good oral health
  • Not smoking
