Implants

dental implants

Implants are an alternative to crowns, bridges, partials, or dentures. Implants can look and feel like natural teeth. An implant metallic titanium insert into your dental arch to act like a natural tooth-root. Titanium is accepted by the body's immune system, so it is not rejected. It integrates with the bone to give a firm support to the crown, bridge, partial, or denture it will support.

Reasons for Implants

  • No worrying about dentures falling out- a stable foundation and retention
  • Improves biting pressure
  • Restores proper chewing ability which leads to a better diet and improved overall health
  • Eliminates tooth shifting
  • No loose dentures or need for denture adhesives
  • Won't apply damaging pressure to your natural teeth
  • Comfort and fit
  • No crowning or bridging of your natural teeth thereby conserving natural tooth structure while replacing missing teeth
  • They look and feel like your natural teeth
  • Keeps your dental arch from receding

Caring for your Implants

To avoid loss of your implants, brushing, flossing and regular dental visits are recommended. If properly cared for, your implants can last a lifetime. Your dentist will monitor your healing and give you more detailed instructions.
