Missing Teeth? Why Not 'Grow' New Ones!
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the teeth at the front of the mouth, which are the most visible, to the back teeth, which should be solid enough to eat a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile.
Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on the implant appears to emerge through the gum just like the original did — it’s like growing a new tooth!
Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and they don’t need to be taken out at night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, in most cases there’s no need to be referred to another office. Call for a no-obligation implant consultation today.
There are several advantages to dental implants:
- Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.
- Can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
No risk of dental decay or cavities.
- Can help to protect your healthy teeth. By replacing missing teeth with a dental implant you can avoid a tooth-supported bridge. A bridge requires grinding away the teeth on one or both sides of the missing tooth or teeth – thereby damaging healthy teeth to restore those that are missing. The modified healthy teeth are attached to, and support, the bridge. Dental implants go in the jawbone, in the spot where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy teeth. They also help prevent healthy, adjacent teeth from shifting as they would if an empty space were left for an extended period of time.
- Preservation of bone.
- Prevents deterioration of facial structure: A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth. And no more worrying that your dentures might slip or fall out. Brush, floss and care for teeth that have been replaced using dental implants exactly the way you would natural teeth – in your mouth.
