impantA dental implant is commonly made of titanium and replaces the root of a missing tooth. Replacement teeth are then placed on the post to provide a natural, durable and esthetic replacement for your missing tooth or teeth.

Prevent bone loss

When a tooth is left missing the bone in the jaw begins to deteriorate. This happens when the bone loses the required stimulation of the tooth root. The constant pressure of chewing actually helps to maintain jawbone density, and once a tooth is lost, the bone in the jaw is no longer getting that stimulation. Dental Implants provide the jawbone with the proper stimulation for healthy bone preservation.

Natural looking, feeling and acting teeth

As soon as we place an implant, most patients are surprised that they can’t even tell the difference between it and their natural teeth. Once it has integrated fully with the jawbone you can eat all your favorite foods as normal with the same chewing power as natural teeth. Another benefit is that dental implants are hygienic, and brushing and flossing is as simple as cleaning your regular teeth.

Conservative restoration

While a bridge typically requires the grinding down, or “preparation,” of two adjacent teeth (often healthy teeth, too), dental implants are placed without damaging any of your other teeth. Most people choose to have a dental bridge versus implants because they want to avoid bone grafting or surgery. However, bridges are not nearly as reliable or conservative in their preservation of your oral health and other teeth over long periods of time.

Long-lasting

Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a non-corrosive metal that is harmless to your body. However, dental implants still require regular hygienic care and receive the normal care with regular teeth cleanings.
