Dental implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth.
A Dental Implant is a small titanium screw which is surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone. Over time the jawbone will attach itself to the Implant, enabling replacement teeth to be permanently fastened into place. The Implant then acts as an anchor for replacement teeth in the form of a Crown, Bridge or stabilized Denture.
Dental Implants do more than just restore your bite and the aesthetic appearance of your smile. When natural teeth are removed, many problems can occur. Missing teeth can have a dramatic negative impact on the surrounding gum tissue and can also lead to the deterioration of the jawbone. The remaining teeth may shift, rotate and become crooked. An improper bite may develop, making it very difficult to chew food properly. Spaces and gaps between teeth may cause embarrassment, problems with speech, and lack of self-esteem.
Dental Implants provide amazing benefits to patients. Implants are usually a very comfortable and effective replacement for teeth. They look and feel natural and can be expected to last for 20 years to life. They also provide amazing stability for patients, aiding with biting pressure as well as reducing irritation and ulcers that are often experienced by Denture wearers. Many people also experience a renewed confidence while speaking, enhanced self-esteem, improved facial appearance and a better overall attitude toward life.
