We have an advanced and lifelike option for replacing missing teeth: dental implants. Using implant technology, we can address a single lost tooth or secure a prosthetic, such as a bridge or even a full denture. What benefits do dental implants offer? How do you place them?
Protecting Jawbone Tissue
When we lose our teeth, the body stops sending doses of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone around the missing tooth root. Without these nutrients, the jawbone actually dissolves. Losing jawbone density means losing additional teeth and in extreme cases, developing a much older appearance. However, by placing implants, we stimulate jawbone growth, since the body recognizes the titanium implants as natural tooth roots, protecting your jawbone tissue and facial structure.
Long Lasting Tooth Replacement
Since the biocompatible titanium implants act as new tooth roots, they don’t need to be replaced every few years, as bridges and dentures do. As a result, your new teeth could last for decades, if not a lifetime.
Each implant is topped with a custom-made restoration, which replaces the visible portion of the tooth. We use dental crowns made from porcelain, due to the material’s strength, durability, and lifelike appearance. You can then enjoy a new tooth that blends seamlessly with your smile.
