Dental implants can help give you a functional, natural looking smile you can proudly show off.
Compared to other options, dental implants are the most conservative way to restore a missing tooth, or provide a secure foundation for a denture. The final product is the closest solution resembling an actual tooth.
When replacing a tooth, the implant is placed in the jaw bone, acting as the “root” of the tooth. After a period of healing, a crown is created and attached to the top of the implant.
Advantages of implants vs removal is that it helps preserve bone levels, and supportive structures around adjacent teeth, stimulating the bone, preventing resorption and keeping the overal foundation of your mouth and smile healthier.
Implants can be used to replace single or multiple teeth, without affecting adjacent teeth as would be the case with a bridge.
Implant posts are also placed to anchor dentures, and help them fit more sturdily and comfortably.
