Why Consider Dental Implants?
There are multiple options for tooth replacement, but what makes dental implants stand out are the numerous benefits they offer.
Permanent: A dental implant is made with titanium, a biocompatible material that fuses with the jaw bone. This creates a permanent root that stabilizes the implant. Even if the prosthetic dental crown is somehow damaged, the post remains in place, making replacement simpler and more comfortable.
Durable: Because the implant is fused to the bone, it does not move or shift. It also delivers chewing force to the jaw bone, which is necessary to maintain bone density.
Lifelike: The prosthetic tooth, or “crown,” of the implant is fashioned to match your existing teeth in shape, size, and color, preserving the aesthetic value of your smile.
Comfortable: The permanent nature and careful placement of the implant ensures that it fits seamlessly into your smile. You will be able to eat, speak, and clean it just as you would a normal tooth, and it never moves or slips out of place.
Functional: These implants are designed to withstand full chewing force, and with proper care, they can remain functional for decades.
Health Protection: One of the biggest advantages of implants is how they preserve your oral health. With a fully functional root, implants prevent the loss in jaw bone density that occurs with tooth loss. They also keep teeth from drifting into the open space and destroying a healthy alignment.
Are You a Candidate for Implants?
The first step in determining your eligibility for implants is a thorough exam. We use digital x-rays to obtain a clear image of your jaw area. This tells us more about your dental situation and whether implants would be right for you. Dental implants require sufficient bone density to hold them in place. In some cases where the bone is thin or weak. An additional procedure such as a bone graft may be necessary to prepare for a placement.
Some complex cases may make it difficult for an implant to be placed. In these cases, we gladly discuss your options and help you to determine the treatment that best helps you achieve a healthy smile you can wear with confidence.
