Implant Overview

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything.  Patients with dental implants can eat, chew, and smile with confidence.

Dentists and patients are very impressed by the results achieved by implant placement. Widely successful and esthetically pleasing, implants have raised the bar when it comes to replacing missing teeth.

Implants are an excellent choice for replacement of:

  • a single tooth
  • multiple teeth
  • support of an entire denture

What are Dental Implants?

Implants are small, titanium screws that act as a root replacement for missing teeth. After placement, the implant then serves as the foundation for a replacement crown. The implant offers the opportunity to regain normal function of the tooth – thus negating the need for a bridge or an unsupported denture.

Implants allow for:

  • improved diet
  • improved function
  • ability to eat foods that may be difficult to enjoy with an unsupported denture
  • low maintenance (same overall care as natural teeth)

Other Benefits:

  • Implants osseointegrate (fuse) with your alveolar (jaw) bone
  • Implants prevent further bone loss and tissue atrophy
  • Implants will support your restored tooth/teeth firmly and safely
  • Implant restorations look natural and esthetically pleasing
  • Implants are excellent solutions for loose fitting dentures (especially while speaking or eating)
  • Implants have a proven scientific basis and have demonstrated excellent results
