Dental implants can improve your quality of life by enhancing the way you eat, speak, rest and appear. Although there are alternatives for replacing missing teeth (dentures, bridgework) dental implants is the preferred method as they are securely anchored into the jawbone.

The dental surgeon inserts a small, threaded cylinder into the jawbone which acts as a root for the artificial tooth. The post is made of titanium as this metal enables the bone to grow in and around the metal. Implants can replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants help retain the natural bone structure and support your face and smile. They function just like natural teeth and provide confidence in eating, speaking and smiling.

Dental Implants

The dentist completes a comprehensive examination to determine if the patient is a candidate for this procedure. When a treatment plan is decided the next step is securing the implant into the jaw. The implant is usually left to heal although in some instances a patient may qualify for same day teeth.

Dental implants can last a lifetime. Your dentist and hygienist will assist with a cleaning technique that you can perform daily. The success rate is high and that is why many people are opting to replace missing teeth with dental implants.
