While dental care in the United States has improved immensely over the past 20 years – millions still loose teeth. But, there are alternatives to dentures that provide a more natural look.

Dental implants are more than cosmetic dentistry. Implants are a great alternative for those that have lost teeth for any reason and have a 98% success rate. Dental implants simply allow you to regain the confidence of your beautiful smile.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the best solution to missing teeth or dentures. If you consider the root of a tooth – a dental implant is really an artificial root – similar to that of a screw. Implants are placed in your jawbone and bond with natural bone. The implant is then used to become a sturdy base for artificial tooth or crown. Then, an abutment, or connector is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support the crown. These crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit you.

Advantages of Dental Implants

There are a number of benefits to dental implants as compared to dentures. Dental implants fuse with bone so they are a permanent solution over dentures. Implants make it easier to eat and are more durable than dentures. Implants can prevent the reduction of other teeth or work that may need to be done to create a tooth-supported bridge. Since other teeth aren’t altered in the process, your teeth are left intact which improves long-term health. They are more comfortable and easier to speak with than dentures. Plus, they’re more convenient than dealing denture adhesives. You get YOUR smile back.

The Procedure

Yes – dental implants are considered oral surgery – but it has an incredibly high success rate and has become common practice in the United States. The surgery itself is relatively brief and you will be provided with oral sedation to help you relax.Once relaxed, we will precisely place the implant. Most patients state the procedure is relatively painless and you return to normalcy as soon as the next day. Over the next few months, the bone fuses to the implant creating something similar to the natural root of your tooth. An exam by one of our dentists will allow us to create a plan for your smile and your overall oral health.
