If you or a family member are missing teeth or need to secure your denture, our dentists can replace them with dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium. The titanium implant is placed into the jawbone and left to heal until it has fully integrated into the jaw. This period can take several months. When the implant is stable it will act as an anchor to hold the crown or denture in place.
Regardless of your needs, they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. In addition to improved appearance, there are many advantages of dental implants.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Eliminates further bone loss
If your teeth are missing in your jaw, the bone may slowly disappear. With dental implants, it will stimulate the bone in your jaw, allowing your body to maintain the bone in the area - acting similar to natural teeth.
Implants will act and feel like natural teeth. While eating, your implants will function similar to your other teeth, making the whole experience positive.
Dental implants can give you a second chance at healthy gums. Patients who have lost some of their teeth due to gum disease, have had their teeth restored with implants. Once our dentists remove the damaged teeth, the affected area will improve. We recommend maintaining the life of your implants through established oral care routines at home in addition to regular check ups.
