Dental implants are a routine part of modern dentistry. No longer are they considered “experimental” or even “new.” Dental implants have simply revolutionized dentistry -- they are now considerd as "tried and true".
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.
Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth?
Maybe your dentures don't feel secure?
Perhaps you have difficulty chewing?
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence -- there is good news! Dental implants can look and feel just like your own teeth! Under the proper conditions, such as placement by Dr. Nathan Tanner [Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists], and diligent patient maintenance; dental implants can last a lifetime.
Long-term studies show continuous improvements in the success rates for dental implants.
Multiple implants can also be used to support a permanent bridge (replacing several missing teeth) which is then attached to the implants.
What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium man made (dental replacement) root. Once installed, a cap or a crown is
then placed on the implant to complete the replacement of your tooth.
What Are The Advantages of Dental Implants?
Esthetics.Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
Tooth-saving-Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant.
More of your own teeth are left untouched -- a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
Confidence. Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the clicks and wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy oral pastes and glues.
Dental implants require the same care as normal teeth...and the installment procedure is relatively pain-free.
