If you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or facing extraction as a part of your treatment plan, you might be considering dental implants.
Dental implants are the gold standard of teeth replacement. Aside from natural teeth, implants are unmatched in the stability they can provide to your bite.
Why Choose Implants?
Traditional restorations may be able to provide patients with some restored function and recreate the appearance of a seamless smile, but they eventually require replacement, affect the shape of the healthy teeth, and do not preserve the health of the jawbone.
The benefits of dental implant technology give you plenty of reasons to consider this option.
- Function and Appearance - Nothing comes closer to the feeling and performance of healthy natural teeth than implant supported restorations
- Permanence - Other, semi-permanent options typically only last 5-10 years. Implants can last a lifetime with proper care, and can support other restorations in the future.
- Facial Structure - Spaces in your mouth can lead to deterioration of bone. Implants nurture bone health to prevent this problem.
- Bite Stability – Eat, drink and smile with confidence. Your implants will be permanently embedded for added strength.
- Reliability - Other treatments to repair or replace missing teeth can fail, as they are typically cemented or hooked around surrounding teeth.
- Confidence – Smile freely and laugh openly. Your teeth will not slip, loosen, or become a distraction.
The role implants play in dentistry has increased, especially for those missing all of their natural teeth. Patients who want to recover functionality improve their smiles have many choices with implant dentistry.
Hybrid Dentures or Overdentures
