Patients who are missing teeth have a permanent, solid tooth replacement solution with dental implants. Whether you have struggled with ill-fitting dentures, bone loss, or gum recession, our doctors can improve your quality of life with this modern prosthetic dentistry option. Dental implants provide fully-functional and natural-looking replacement teeth that will stand up to many years of regular use with proper maintenance.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed below the gum line to replace damaged roots where teeth are missing. Once they've been incorporated by surrounding jaw bone tissue, these posts anchor lifelike, attractive tooth replacements, including single tooth replacements, bridges, and full dentures. Unlike traditional bridges, dental implants-retained artificial teeth don’t rely on surrounding natural teeth for support. This helps you avoid the risk of damaging natural teeth or suffering from receding gums that accompanies traditional artificial teeth.
Dental implants also halt bone loss that is due to missing teeth, as well as strengthen your bite and help to preserve your facial bone structure. For patients who have lost all their teeth, we can provide secure implant-retained dentures that look and feel like beautiful, natural teeth.
Ideal candidates for dental implants are individuals who have healthy gums and sufficient bone mass below the gums.
