Dental Implants

The New Standard for Replacing Lost Teeth

Replacing lost teeth offers several benefits, such as restoring your confidence in your smile’s appearance. However, it isn’t just your smile’s appearance that suffers. For example, losing the roots of your teeth can have consequences that aren’t immediately obvious, but that will have significant impacts on your oral health in the future. To address those effects, we often recommend dental implant-supported restorations, which not only replace the visible portions of your lost teeth but also their roots. This unique ability gives implant-supported restorations the benefit of preserving your long-term oral health as well as restoring your smile’s immediate function and appearance.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implant posts are designed to mimic natural teeth roots, and as such, they’re inserted into the jawbone where your missing teeth once rested. Because they’re made from biocompatible titanium, your jawbone fuses to the posts as it heals, creating a support system for your replacement teeth that closely mimics your natural teeth and their roots. In addition to providing substantially more comfort and stability, the benefits of dental implants also include:

  • Better long-term oral health
  • No need for adhesives or clasps
  • Stronger jawbone structure (due to restored stimulation)
  • Easier and more comfortable biting and chewing
  • And more
