Implants


Dental Implants Are the Closest Dental Restoration to Your Original Teeth


They are natural-looking and provide the functionality of a normal tooth. Dental Implants require the same maintenance as a normal tooth; brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups. Dental implants can replace missing or severely damaged teeth and can be used to secure restorations like dentures and dental bridges. Patients with dental implants often have greater satisfaction and results than with other types of dental restorations.

Dental implants have two primary parts, a small titanium post and a crown. The small titanium post is first implanted into the jawbone. Titanium is used because of its unique compatibility with human tissue, since the jawbone will grow naturally around the titanium, unlike other metals.

The jawbone will grow around the post and secure it in place. After the post is secure the dental crown or other dental fixture is attached to the post. The titanium post acts similarly to a natural tooth root and the crown provides a natural looking tooth and biting surface. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or many teeth, regardless of whether the tooth loss was caused by disease or injury.

Reasons to Consider Dental Implants


•  They can replace one or more missing teeth
•  They are very durable, nearly undetectable, and the closest restoration to real teeth
•  They help prevent teeth from shifting to fill gaps
•  They improve bite and chewing ability
•  They prevent associated jaw joint issues
•  They reduce the sunken look caused by missing teeth
•  They can be used to anchor a denture or partial
•  They improve aesthetic appearance and confidence, especially when smiling
