For patients missing one or more teeth, dental implants
offer a permanent solution with many benefits. They
are completely customizable, and can be made to match your tooth shape, color
and size, giving you a full smile that can literally last a lifetime.
How Implants Work
begin with your dentist placing a small metal post,
which looks like a threaded screw, beneath the gums and into your jawbone. As
the body heals, bone fuses to the implant structure, creating a permanent
anchor for your new crown. When the replacement is attached, it becomes a stable
fixture in your mouth and is cared for just in the same manner you use for your
natural teeth. Whether you are missing one, several or a whole row of teeth,
implants can be a viable solution.
Tooth loss leads to bone loss, with density diminishing
greatly during the first year. The roots of your natural tooth extend down into
your jawbone. When you chew, these facial bones are stimulated, which prompts
them to remain strong and healthy. Implants are very effective way to prevent
bone loss, as they also attach to the jawbone and give the necessary
stimulation. Because they look and feel like your own teeth, they are
convenient and help preserve the natural structure of your face. Other benefits
- Prevent natural teeth from shifting
- Easy to care for with traditional oral care
with predictable results
- Less chance of gum recession
Implants are a reliable, beautiful and strong solution for missing
teeth and offer many benefits for the health and lifestyle of the patient.
