Dental Implants

Tooth loss is more common than you may realize – 120 million Americans are missing more than one tooth, says the American College of Prosthodontists.

Thankfully, with dental implants, your missing teeth can be replaced in a way that blends in with your natural smile.

Read on to learn more about how implants can benefit you in the long-run!

How do Implants work?

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots made of titanium. They are small posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone. Our dental experts are able to use these implants to mount replacement teeth or bridges into the area.

Implants are long-lasting and stable, so they don’t slip or shift. They also do not have to be anchored to other teeth, making for a safer and less irritating replacement option.

How do Implants differ from Conventional Dentures?

Unlike dentures, implants are stable and don’t come loose. When you get implants, you don’t need to worry about your replacement teeth slipping like a denture would.

Implants offer a more natural solution – They look and feel more like your natural teeth than those of a denture. Implants also require less maintenance than dentures.

All in all, implants provide more natural and longer lasting solutions for replacing your teeth than traditional dentures alone.

If you still wish to use a denture or bridge, they can be mounted to implants for a secure fit.
