They Look & Feel Like Real Teeth!
Missing a tooth? Dental implants are now the most requested dental treatments for patients who want to replace a tooth. Why? Because implants look, feel and function like a natural tooth. And they’re also one of the most durable options too.
How Dental Implants Work + Their Benefits!
A dental implant is a replacement tooth with an artificial root. The implant procedure places a titanium screw into your jaw bone, which bonds with your bone and then provides a sturdy anchor from which to add an artificial tooth, like a porcelain crown. Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
Unlike partial dentures or dental bridges, implants cannot be removed, so they don’t interfere with your adjacent teeth, and they can also be cleaned and maintained just like your natural teeth! Patients also enjoy the comfort of implants, and the fact that they can eat what they want and talk confidently, without worrying about their tooth slipping.
Benefits of Dental Implants
If you’re a good candidate for implants, and you wish to have them, we will refer you to an implant placing specialist, who will surgically install the abutment that will be used to fasten your brand new tooth. Following 4 to 6 months of your healing time, you will return to our office so that we can complete your implants procedure by fastening your custom designed crown to the abutment.
