Dental implants have long since been the standard of care for missing teeth and have changed the face of dentistry!
Dental implants act as a complete replacement for missing teeth and provide a strong foundation for permanent crowns, bridges, or dentures.
“Made to match your natural teeth, a tooth implant provides a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth.”
Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth and offer the longest term solution to tooth loss, compared to alternative tooth replacements, such as removable partials and full dentures, or even traditional fixed bridges.
With a documented success rate of over 95%, dental implants are by far the best and longest lasting way to replace missing teeth. Implants also help preserve tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost.
Dental implants will never decay and feel just like a natural tooth. Most often, they take the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post that is inserted into the jaw to replace the root part of a missing tooth. Nowadays, the procedure is very routine and usually requires only local anesthesia.
After the implant is placed, a custom made permanent crown, bridge or denture is placed over the implant to provide a long term solution for your missing teeth so you can chew and speak with confife nce again
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a preferred choice for replacing missing teeth because they:
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Preserve the shape of your face, which might sag with tooth loss
- Prevent bone loss in the jaw
- Are made to last a lifetime with proper care
They can be used to:
Replace One Tooth — A single implant can be placed to restore function and prevent future collapsing of neighbouring teeth.
Replace Multiple Teeth — Implant teeth can act as supports for fixed bridgework if you are missing more than one tooth in a row.
Replace All Teeth Permanently — Implants can support an entire arch of upper or lower replacement teeth that are fixed into the mouth and are never removed. Sometimes, the new teeth can be supported by as few as 4 implants.
Support Removable Dentures —Traditional dentures put pressure on the underlying bone, accelerating bone loss and causing dentures to become loose. Attaching a removable denture onto implants prevents dentures from slipping and preserves the bone directly beneath them.
