Despite amazing advancements in dental care, many patients still experience tooth loss. Decay, gum disease, and dental trauma can all cause tooth loss, and it is surprisingly common.
In the past, the only ways to replace missing teeth was with a denture or dental bridge. Today, we have dental implants that replace both the missing tooth’s root and the tooth crown itself.
Some patients feel that bridges and dentures alone cannot provide the stability or feel of natural teeth. They worry about their teeth shifting out of place while they speak and eat, and they find denture adhesive application a hassle.
Dental implants are a more realistic option. Dental implants can provide an anchor for crowns, bridges, and dentures for greater security.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium rods that serve as a secure base for replacement teeth. After securing the dental implants and the desired prosthesis, your dental implants will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth!
The dental implant process involves the surgical placement of the implants, a healing period, and the installation of the restorations. The stability of your new dental implants will give you a feeling of confidence that could last a lifetime.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Natural Appearance | Enjoy showing off your full and complete smile.
Easier Speech | Missing teeth can make it difficult to speak correctly and so can dentures that slip and slide. Dental implants have the same abilities as natural teeth.
Improved Chewing | Dental implants supply strength to your bite so you can chew all of your favorite foods and keep your diet healthy.
Durable Solution | No one wants to replace their teeth year after year. Dental implants can last for a lifetime when you take good care of them.
