Dental implants are a restoration that mimics your natural tooth. They are made from titanium metal screws that are implanted into your jawbone in the area you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth. The titanium used in the metal screw is bio-compatible and acts like your original tooth root. Since they are designed to function just like your natural tooth, you will not even notice that you have an implant installed. Implants are also used as anchors for other restoration types such as dental crowns and dental bridges, or as retainers for dentures. Since implants look just like your own natural teeth, no one will even be able to tell you have an implant installed.
Dental Implants are an excellent solution for those with missing teeth who have suffered decay, injury, teeth grinding or other oral diseases. The ideal candidate for an implant should be in good health, have healthy gums and a strong enough jawbone so we can securely place the implant.
Implants are the closest restorative choice you can get next to your own natural tooth. They are placed into the bone to provide a very durable and reliable option for replacing missing teeth. Dental Implants prevent the surrounding teeth from collapsing into the missing space while providing a very natural aesthetic.
With Dental Implants, you will feel a sense of improved self-confidence as you feel better about your smile. You will be able to east easier and enjoy food again. Implants can also eliminate or reduce oral pain as well as improve speech. As well, Implants are shown to be a durable restoration choice and are more convenient versus typical dentures or other tooth replacement solutions. Studies have shown that 98% of all implants placed are successful as well as they can last as long as 25 years!
Since Implants can mimic your natural teeth, both in appearance and behavior, caring for your new Implants is very important. In addition to regular home maintenance, such as brushing your teeth a minimum of twice a day and floss at least once a day, we will often recommend hygiene visits every three to four months. Our Dental Hygiene Team is skilled at cleaning Implants to prevent gum disease from developing in these areas.
