Whether you have had teeth missing since birth or have lost teeth due to gum disease, infection, trauma, or decay – dental implants may provide a secure, comfortable, and natural solution. Implants can be used for both individual tooth replacement and anchoring of bridgework or dentures for replacing multiple teeth. In cases where several teeth are missing, implants may work to provide support and stability superior to other types of dental restorations. Since there are nearly endless possibilities that can be used to solve your dental issue, our office will help you determine if implants are the best option for you.
By choosing dental implants, you are choosing to improve the quality of your life. Missing teeth can cause distress and negatively impact your wellbeing. Dental implants will help you speak better, chew more easily and smile confidently. We can get you back to a full mouth of functional, healthy looking teeth that will benefit your overall health, as well.
Dental implants are surgically attached to the jawbone and become a permanent part of your mouth. They replace the form and function of missing teeth virtually the same way that your natural tooth root supports your natural tooth. Implants are metallic cylinders, usually made of titanium, which are placed into the jawbone where original teeth once existed and are used to secure a replacement tooth.
Implants are a great option if you do not want to wear dentures, or if you only need to replace several teeth. Unlike dentures, which may shift while chewing, dental implants work the same as natural teeth, allowing you to eat without worry. Implants will remain in place, even if you eat sticky foods. They can also be cleaned like natural teeth since they do not need to be removed from your mouth, so you can brush your teeth just as you would with natural teeth.
Some patients may be hesitant to consider dental implants because they believe that a lower cost option is just as good. While implants do have a higher upfront cost, they are overall more cost effective than other options. Implants are sturdy and are far less likely to require repair or replacement, both of which result in additional payments. With good oral hygiene and routine professional maintenance, implants can last a lifetime!
