Dental implants are necessary when you have missing teeth, but either cannot or do not want to get dentures, bridges or crowns. It is important to replace a lost tooth, as the consequences of removing/losing a tooth and doing nothing can grow into a much larger problem as time goes on.
The dental implant process requires two phases: a surgical phase and a restorative phase. Regarding the surgical phase, patients should be mindful of working with an oral surgeon who is well experienced, equipped with an abundance of training in the discipline.
Dental Implants offer many benefits including:
• Your self-image will improve
• You will be able to eat without pain
• You will experience improved overall comfort
• Dental implants last many years
• You will experience no more mouth pain
• They will improve your oral health
• They require no extra maintenance
Our implants are surgically placed in the jawbone right at the site of your missing tooth. We use a process called osseointegration to fuse these implants to your jawbone for a stable anchor. If properly cared for, these implants can last for a lifetime. If you have missing teeth or old bridges with decay underneath, implants may be right for you. Call us to find out more.
