If you have lost teeth, our experienced dentists may recommend replacing them with dental implants. These advanced dental prosthetics are designed to give you back a healthy, fully functional and aesthetic smile that you can enjoy for a lifetime, and are considered the ideal option for replacing missing teeth.

What is Implant Dentistry?

Implant dentistry is a branch of dentistry focused on the replacement of missing teeth through the surgical insertion of artificial tooth roots, known as dental implants, into the jawbone. These implants are typically made of titanium, a material that is well-tolerated by the body and capable of integrating with bone tissue through a process called osseointegration. This integration provides a stable foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges or dentures, which are then attached to the implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over other methods of tooth replacement, including:

  • Improved Appearance: Implants look and feel like your own teeth, enhancing your smile and confidence.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Since they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier Eating: Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved Oral Health: Unlike a tooth-supported bridge, implants do not require altering other teeth, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Durability: Implants are very durable and will last many years, potentially a lifetime with proper care.
  • Convenience: Implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
