Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is often the treatment of choice and is also one of the most conservative treatments for tooth replacement.
Dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural that can last a lifetime. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Implants are biocompatible posts that are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They are physically and biologically designed to attach to your jaw bone and become the foundation for a natural looking restoration. Your new tooth or teeth will have excellent stability and strength, and will look and feel like your natural teeth.
Ideal Dental Implant Candidates
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods and allows improvement in speech, while preventing teeth from shifting in the mouth.
