Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. These artificial dental roots provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable teeth that are created to match your natural teeth. Dental implants can replace ill-fitting dentures or missing teeth.

Our patients report that dental implants feel and look like natural teeth. The benefits of dental implants are numerous: prevention of bone loss, improved appearance, the ability to eat your favorite foods, the ability to maintain healthy teeth, and your experience of renewed confidence.

Before & after dental implants

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Improved Biting Pressure: Healthy teeth are able to absorb over 500 pounds of biting pressure per square inch. If you've worn dentures for a long time, that pressure may be diminished significantly to one-tenth that of natural teeth. Dental implants can often restore the amount of pressure that can be withstood to nearly the same level of healthy teeth.

Dental Comfort and Fit: Because your replacement teeth are anchored securely to the implants in your jawbone, they can't slip and slide like unsecured dentures.

Longevity and Reliability: With proper oral hygiene and care, scientifically tested and approved dental implant systems have been shown to last as long as 20 years or more with few complications.

Increased Self-Confidence: Because dental implants function remarkably like natural teeth, most people who have them experience a renewed sense of self-confidence once they realize they can again chew, talk, laugh, and smile with confidence.
