Implant Restoration

Did you know that dental implants are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth?The most natural single and multiple tooth replacement option that exists, dental implants will often last a lifetime!

Dental Implants

An effective way to restore lost teeth, dental implants can provide a durable, permanent option for oral reconstruction. Rather than resting on the gumline like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements surgically placed in the jawbone. Composed of titanium metal that “fuses” with the jawbone through a process called “osseointegration,” dental implants never slip or make embarrassing noises that advertise the fact that you have “false teeth,” and never decay like teeth anchoring fixed bridges. Because dental implants fuse with the jawbone, they are often more stable than the teeth they replace.

Dental Implants offer a wide range of benefits:

• Your teeth will look and feel natural, providing a confident smile
• Elimination of discomfort or soreness some experience with ordinary dentures or bridges
• No slipping, allowing you to speak and eat normally

Letting lost teeth go untreated can cause a number of problems:

• Missing teeth can affect what foods or drinks you can consume, which can lead to poor nutrition and poor overall health
• Your bite can also be affected irreversibly. Missing teeth can allow your teeth to shift and over time and line up improperly which can lead to possible jaw joint or other bite problems.
• Your self-esteem or confidence can be affected if you feel self-conscious and worry about people noticing your missing teeth
