The benefits of dental implants
Whether you’ve lost teeth due to disease or injury, we can provide you with dental solutions that will restore your biting and chewing function and the natural appearance of your teeth. Dental implants offer a wide range of benefits that include:
- Physical chewing function: you’ll be able to eat the foods you love without discomfort.
- Durability: dental implants last a lifetime and are fully integrated into your jawbone.
- Prevent bone loss: empty areas of your jaw (where teeth used to be) can deteriorate. Implants stimulate bone growth.
- Keep adjacent teeth stable and help prevent gum disease
- Prevent facial sagging and premature aging
Typically, implant treatments require multiple visits. Damaged teeth may be removed, and your mouth is given time to heal before the post and crown of the implant are placed. Be sure to view our instructions on what to expect before anesthesia, the procedure, and after the implant procedure for more information.
What you should know about tooth implant surgery
Implant surgery involves using a high-tech replacement tooth that mimics the entire tooth structure. After any partially damaged teeth are removed, a titanium post, (which acts as a tooth root) is secured into your jawbone where the natural teeth once sat. This post anchors to your jaw. Once your jaw has adapted to the titanium root, a specially formed tooth crown that perfectly mimics the appearance and function of your normal teeth is attached to the top. The entire process can require several visits, but the results are astounding. You’ll have fully functional teeth that are natural-looking and work as they should. Feel free to view more information about what to expect after the tooth removal process or multiple teeth removal for more details or call us to schedule a dental evaluation and consultation.
