Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Most of our patients choose implants because they offer unparalleled security. There are numerous other benefits, including:

  • They allow you to eat what you want, from the freshest veggies to the chewiest treats
  • They are easy to clean; just brush, floss, and visit the dentist as recommended
  • They look more natural than dentures, as they are individually placed
  • They allow you to speak clearly; no more clicking or whistling sounds that are associated with dentures or toothlessness
  • Best of all, they restore your confidence; you’ll look forward to sharing your new smile with your friends and loved ones

Are Implants right for me?

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have good overall gum health. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene, so adherence to a daily dental hygiene routine is necessary.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth. Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.
