Dental Implants

Live life the way you want to with dental implants

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth.

 

They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, kissing, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.

What are dental implants?

Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws.

 

When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. A connector – known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.

Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.

Why Dental Implants?

First of all, they improve your health. Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.

Improved appearance


Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent

Improved speech
 

With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

Improved comfort
 

Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures

Easier eating
 

Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

Improved self-esteem
 

Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.

Convenience

Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place

How Successful Are Dental Implants?

Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%.

 

With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant.

 

Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
