Find Out if Dental Implants Are Right for You

Has your confidence taken a blow due to missing teeth? Do you find yourself struggling to chew your food? Are you tired of dealing with removable partial dentures?

As the new standard of care and the preferred method for tooth replacement, dental implants are the perfect permanent solution for missing or unstable teeth or dentures. These high-tech implants don’t only last a lifetime, but they both look and feel natural in your mouth.

Due to the medical benefits and the visual appeal of dental implants, they can play an important part in your journey to craft your perfect smile.

What Are They?

A dental implant is a permanent fixture that can be used to replace both the tooth and the tooth root. These implants consist of a titanium post that’s surgically placed into the existing bone and a porcelain implant crown that’s secured to the post. The metal post bonds with the healthy bone of the jaw or the skull and provides permanent support for a dental prosthesis such as dentures and dental crowns. Once it’s finished healing, a dental implant is capable of mimicking how your natural teeth look, feel, and function with the rest of your body.

Why Dental Implants?

While dental implants are the next best thing to having your own teeth, they also offer a variety of other benefits.

  • They can replace dentures and removable partials which only provide up to 15% of the chewing power of your natural teeth.
  • They can help prevent bone loss by providing the jaw bone with the stimulation it needs to preserve bone health.
  • Most patients can’t even tell the difference between the implants and their natural teeth. You can even clean them the same way!
  • As a permanent solution to missing teeth, implants are safe, decay-free, and won’t lead to root canal treatment.

A Solution to Dentures

All-on-4® or implant-retained dentures are tooth implants that use as few as four implants and can mimic the appearance of an extended bridge. These permanent fixtures can support a full-arch prosthesis and go all the way across your mouth. This full set of implants has been designed to replace all of your upper or lower teeth. As both a permanent and more natural-looking alternative to dentures, each implant features a small titanium screw that’s surgically inserted into the gums and uses your jawbone as an anchor. Each screw is then covered with a false tooth to complete the look.
