Dental implants are a safe, medically proven, esthetic alternative to traditional crowns, bridgework, and dentures. Because implant restorations look and feel like natural teeth, they offer comfort, security and confidence.
A dental implant is a small “anchor” made of titanium that is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After osseointegration, when the surrounding bone has healed around the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant. This new tooth looks, feels and performs almost exactly like a natural tooth.
Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or many teeth. They can even be used to replace a full arch. As anchor points, implants can also securely attach a partial denture or a bridge.
Since dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, they can enhance your appearance. More importantly, the securely attached implant gives you the confidence of eating what you like, speaking easily and clearly, and freedom from embarrassment. And, by following a regular routine of careful oral hygiene and regular checkups, your implants can last for many years.
