Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants provide an attractive, durable, and natural-looking option to restore smiles with missing teeth. With dental implants, patients experience:
- A renewed ability to comfortably eat a variety of foods
- An end to the bone loss caused by missing teeth
- Improved confidence
- A more youthful appearance, because facial skin and muscles regain support
- A complete, healthy smile
Implant Placement & Restoration
The dentist will conduct an in-depth evaluation to determine if dental implants are right for you. Ideal candidates possess good oral health and a jawbone structure sufficient to support implants. We may recommend procedures to enhance jawbone mass prior to implant placement. Typically, the first step in the dental implant process involves surgically inserting small, surgical-grade titanium posts in the jawbone – one to secure each missing tooth or a few dental implants to anchor a denture, partial, or bridge. At the completion of the healing process, the dentist will attach your custom replacement teeth to give you a brand new smile!
