What are dental implants?
Dental implants are durable ‘tooth root replacements’ that can be used to provide a sturdy foundation for a single ceramic tooth (crown) or, along with other implants, can provide a foundation for a prosthetic dental bridge.
- Most dental implants are constructed almost entirely from the element titanium, which is exceptionally strong, lightweight, non-corrodible, and virtually biologically inert.
- Dental implants can provide a long-term and highly aesthetic tooth replacement solution to patients of all ages and various states of oral health.
- Perhaps best of all, dental implants are easy to maintain and, if cared for properly with the right balance of professional and home care, can last decades and even a lifetime!
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants are often the number one recommendation of dental healthcare professionals for the treatment of missing teeth. This is because they are the closest thing to natural teeth modern dentistry has available. They offer a suite of incredible benefits that allows patients to eat, speak, and smile comfortably and with confidence. Overall, they are simply unmatched by other more traditional tooth replacement technologies.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
Get Your Smile Back!
- You only need to lose one tooth to experience the uncomfortable loss of self-confidence that comes with a “gappy” smile. Losing more than one tooth, experiencing a failing dentition as a result of gum disease or tooth decay can be truly crippling. The consequences are felt in both the social and professional working environments.
- Dental implants support replacement teeth that are carefully fabricated to be virtually indistinguishable from the natural teeth they are replacing. In most cases, your friends and family won’t even be able to tell the difference!
Eat and Speak Normally!
- Dental solutions, such as removable dentures, have a huge impact upon your ability to eat and speak properly. Dental implants, however, function similarly to natural tooth roots and are specifically manufactured to be able to support a strong bite. As a result, you can feel at ease knowing you can continue to eat all of your favorite food and speak with comfort and clarity.
- Our advanced dental implant procedures are designed specifically to give patients suffering with “terminal dentition” or those already edentulous (without any teeth) a new set of teeth again. Furthermore, the bothersome clicking of dentures can be a thing of the past.
Enjoy the Benefits of Great Long-lasting Oral Health!
- More conventional approaches to replacing teeth, such as traditional dental bridges, often require the teeth on either side of the empty space(s) to be ground down to provide support for a replacement tooth/teeth. Even partial dentures, which make use of metal hooks attached to neighboring teeth, can cause perfectly healthy teeth to become fractured and decayed over time.
- Dental implants function primarily independent of your remaining dentition and therefore don’t typically affect or damage the neighboring teeth.
- Additionally, dental implants allow you to replace the entire missing tooth structure, including the root. This helps to transmit the stimulating forces associated with eating to the underlying jawbone, keeping it healthy and strong. Removable dentures, on the other hand, only replace the crowns of the missing teeth. In the absence of the stimulation previously supplied by the tooth roots, the jawbone can begin to atrophy and shrink. This causes bite strength to weaken and one’s youthful facial contours to look prematurely aged.
