Implants are the new standard of care for people with missing or broken down teeth. You no longer have to rely on dentures, bridges and other removable appliances. Dental Implants give you renewed confidence in eating, speaking, and sharing your smile with the world.
Implants make it possible for people who have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury, congenital defects, and other reasons to acquire permanent, natural-looking replacement teeth. Missing teeth can not only make many people self-conscious when smiling or talking, they can also affect chewing and speaking.
Unlike bridges and dentures, dental implants provide a durable, long-lasting replacement for missing teeth. With dental implants, there is less risk of gum irritation, shifting of other teeth, and no slipping, as dental implants are custom-designed for each patient and are made to become permanent parts of the mouth.
The dental implant procedure involves the placement of a thin rod that is anchored to the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth. Over a period of about three to six months, this rod will fuse itself to the jaw, becoming a permanent part of your teeth. Once the rod has anchored and healed, a custom-made crown that is color-tinted to blend in with your natural teeth will be attached. The result is a tooth, or teeth, that look and feel like those surrounding them, improving chewing and speaking and enhancing the aesthetic of your smile.
Dental implants can give you a perfect fit and provide a more aesthetically pleasing and more comfortable alternative to other treatments for missing teeth.
