Dental implants are the next best thing to your healthy, natural teeth. Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth when implanted by an experienced implant dentist.
Dental implants are built to last. That makes them your best long-term, cost-effective solution.
Dental implants retain your natural face shape, and smile. A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad.
A dental implant feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Other options may interfere with your normal everyday eating, smiling, and speaking.
Dental implants allow you to bite naturally, eat virtually anything you want, and brush your teeth normally. Dentures can feel uncomfortable when eating, restrict your food choices, and need to be removed for cleaning.
Dental implants are fixed in place, so they won’t move, click or shift, giving you confidence in your smile. Dentures may slip when eating, talking or even laughing, which isn’t so funny.
Dental implants protect your healthy bone. Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to additional health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. When it is not being used to support a natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness.
In cases of missing tooth dental implants are an option to consider.
Dental implants also are a great option for patients who don’t want the drawbacks of, or can no longer wear, removable dentures.
