Dental implants are the most cutting-edge therapy available for the replacement of missing teeth.
Implants provide a strong foundation to replace missing teeth. Because they are designed to fuse with bone, they are a permanent solution. There are many possible advantages to dental implant therapy.
• Improve functionality – both eating and speaking
• Minimize oral bone loss
• Reduce compromise to adjacent healthy teeth
• Eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures
• Improve oral health and hygiene
• Give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself
To begin the implant process, a metal post is surgically positioned into the jaw. This post will act as a permanent "root" for the implanted tooth. Once it is in place, the surrounding bone and tissue need time to heal before a replacement crown is placed.
Implant placement requires special training, as it is a surgical procedure. Our team is highly-trained in implant placement to meet your dental needs.
Implants require healthy gums and adequate bone. A patient must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits, as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
After an implant is placed, the restoration is completed with an implant crown.
While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework because they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support.
