Dental Implants

Safe & Permanent Dental Implants that Look Just Like Natural Teeth

Dental implants are the counterparts to dental crowns, partials, and full dentures. While these common prostheses mimic the top parts (crowns) of your teeth, implants replicate the roots underneath your gums. With the support of dental implants, your replacement teeth will look, feel, and function as comfortably and reliably as your natural, healthy teeth. Despite advances in preventive and restorative dentistry, many patients still experience tooth loss to some degree. Therefore, much of dentistry’s advancement has focused on finding the ideal method for replacing lost teeth. Dental implants, which are small, root-like posts made from biocompatible titanium, are the most realistic options because they are the only way to replace the roots of your lost teeth.

Placing dental implants requires minor oral surgery, and planning for the procedure requires a comprehensive examination and measurements using advanced digital imaging technology.  After the implant posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone, the surrounding bone will fuse to the titanium implants as it heals.

Many don’t realize that the consequences of missing or damaged teeth are more than just cosmetic. Left unrepaired, this oral health issue can cause serious problems that include:

  • Inability to speak and chew normally
  • Bone loss
  • Jaw pain and infection
  • Gum disease (which can lead to problems like heart attack and stroke)

Don’t let missing or badly damaged teeth hurt your confidence or your health. We’ll help you understand why high-tech dental implants may be the best solution.
