If you desire to replace a missing or extracted tooth comfortably and conservatively, then dental implants may be the best option for you. With a 97% success rate, dental implants can provide you years of function both naturally and beautifully.
When a tooth is missing, the teeth above and around the missing tooth can shift creating gaps between your teeth, changes to your bite, or even causing other teeth to break because of uneven dental forces.
Dental implants prevent this shifting and damage and also help prevent bone loss by stimulating the bone directly around the implant. Many patients choose dental implants as a conservative, effective, and modern solution to tooth loss.
Cosmetic dental implants do not rely on the adjacent teeth; therefore treatment is not required for the teeth directly in front of or behind the missing tooth as they would with a bridge. Implants are a “single tooth solution to a single tooth problem.” If you are missing several teeth then additional implants can be placed to replace the teeth in these areas as well.
Like natural teeth, each new Implant Crown can be supported by its own implant which acts like the tooth root. Our desire is to provide each patient with the most conservative and cost effective alternative for the long term, and dental implants certainly fit this description.
Patients are always concerned about what to expect if they choose to replace missing teeth with dental implants. Rest easy, dental implants are comfortable for patients in each phase, surgical placement through the restorative phase (dental crown). Our patients continuously comment on how they can not tell their “natural” teeth from their “new implant crown” supported by the dental implant.
Dental implants can be placed under Dentures to secure them allowing patients to chew and talk without using adhesives or worrying about their dentures moving. Many of our patients have replaced their partials with implants and now they can chew and smile with confidence. If you have a denture, partial, or an area of missing teeth, then you should consider dental implants as a possible option for you.
