Dental Implants are the premier restorative treatment option for a person missing one or more teeth. Dental Implants have evolved over the years into a mainstream restorative treatment option for patients who wish to have a permanent and natural looking replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing their teeth look natural and their facial contours have been restored. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
A Dental Implant is a small titanium post placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing similar to a natural tooth root. The dental implant is coated with titanium oxide which helps bind to the bone during the healing process. The implant is well healed after approximately two to four months after the initial placement of the titanium post creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. At this point the dental implant is as steady and sturdy as a natural tooth root and is ready for the crown to be permanently attached to the titanium post resulting in a fully functional natural looking tooth. Dental implants can help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration which often occurs when teeth are missing. Dental Implants have a very good success rate. This success rate has made dental implants one of the most sought after treatments for missing teeth.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
