Dental Implants

The New Standard For Replacing Teeth

Replacing lost teeth offers several benefits, including restoring confidence in your smile’s appearance and enjoying your full and complete grin once again. Though you may be aware of the impact tooth loss has on your smile’s appearance, you might not know that it can impact oral function and structural stability as well. For instance, losing the crown and root system of a tooth not only complicates functional capabilities such as biting, chewing, and eating, but it can lead to possible jawbone deterioration since teeth roots stimulate the jaw bone. To address those effects, we often recommend the help of dental implant restorations. With the ability to replace the both the visible portions of your lost teeth and their underlying root system, implant-supported restorations can help preserve your long-term oral health and restore your smile’s function and appearance.

Replacing the Crown and Root System

Dental implant posts are designed to mimic natural teeth roots so that your restorations can properly support the pressure of your bite. Because they’re made from biocompatible titanium material, your implant posts fuse with your jawbone while it heals, thus creating a support system for your replacement teeth. In addition to providing more comfort and stability, the benefits of dental implants include:

  • Better long-term oral health
  • No need for adhesives or clasps
  • Stronger jawbone structure
  • Easier and more comfortable biting and chewing capabilities
  • And more
