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.

Dental Implants

The next best thing to your healthy, natural teeth​

More people are getting dental implants to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants are a long-term solution because they are embedded in your jawbone – just like your natural teeth.

They even go your natural teeth one better since they can’t develop cavities. Plus, unlike fixed bridges or removable dentures, dental implants will not affect neighboring healthy teeth or lead to bone loss in the jaw. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

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.

Durability

Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

Prevents Bone Loss

When you lose teeth, you also tend to lose bone mass in your jaw. Your jawbone needs the stimulation it gets when your teeth connect to maintain its mass. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that also replaces that jaw bone stimulation, helping to prevent bone loss.

Matches Your Natural Teeth

Dental implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Your dentist will work with you to design implants that match the color of your surrounding teeth and fit perfectly in the gap. No one but you and your dentist will know which teeth are implants.

Restores Bite Force

Because dental implants are anchored into your jaw with a titanium post that replaces the tooth root, they allow you to bite with more or less the same amount of force you could use with your natural teeth. Other tooth replacement options do not restore nearly as much of your bite force because they sit on top of the gums and aren’t anchored in place.
