What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. They are nothing like the “falsies” that your grandfather sported (and undoubtedly complained about)!
This solution involves a simple two-step process. The dental implants themselves are prosthetic tooth roots made of titanium. These are inserted into your gums and allowed to fuse with your jawbone for a number of months. For whatever reason, titanium is special in that it will completely attach itself to your existing structures.
This healing time will allow for a strong, durable bond to take hold between the prosthetic and your jawbone. Essentially, this provides the kind of stability that conventional dentures would never give you.
After fusion is complete, you will need to return to our office for the next stage of the procedure: the restoration.
The implant will keep the bone healthy, and your new crown (the part that looks like a tooth) will look great.
Will Dental Implants Improve My Life?
Without a doubt! There are so many things that implants can do for you including enhancing your chewing power. Because dental implants are fused to the bone they can help you regain the functionality that you lost along with your teeth.
Implants are designed to create a strong, lifelike experience, restoring the majority of the bite power of your natural teeth. This means you can eat whatever you want whenever you want with complete assurance! There won’t be any slipping and sliding.
Importantly, implants will also boost your appearance and confidence levels by giving you a more complete smile and a fuller facial structure. You will look and feel younger and more vibrant.
If you prefer dentures but want to make them more stable, we offer implant-supported dentures that use implants with a bar attachment. This will anchor your dentures securely and comfortably to your gums.
