Dental implants replace missing or damaged teeth lost to disease or accidents. These permanently replace the missing or damaged tooth, and this procedure is favored by most patients over dentures.
A dental implant is created by using a metal post that substitutes for the base of the tooth. An artificial tooth is attached to the post, which gives the patient the look of a natural and healthy tooth.
Implants can be removed or repaired as necessary.
Advantages of dental implants include:
A natural improved appearance. Implants feel like and act as real teeth.
Improved comfort – no slipping or soreness!
Improved health for other teeth.
Improved speech. Unlike dentures, implants can’t slip or get in the way.
Improved eating and nutrition.
Improved convenience. No messing with dentures or adhesives.
Did you know that dental implants have been in use for many years, and have success rates of up to 98% for our patients? It’s true! If properly cared for, implants can last for the life of the patient.
