Missing Teeth? Why not ‘Grow’ New Ones?
Dental Implant Benefits
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Implants stimulate the jawbone, maintaining density and preventing the bone loss that often leads to a “sunken,” more aged look. Replacing missing teeth with implants also improves function for chewing and talking, bringing added security and boosted confidence.
How Dental Implants Work
Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, your dentist will custom-create natural-looking restorations. These will match the rest of your teeth, function just like the originals, and be impossible for anyone to detect! Get the smile you deserve – permanently!
