Dental Implants Are the Gold Standard of Tooth Replacement
Living with tooth loss is never pleasant, yet over 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Without replacing missing teeth, you run the risk of jaw bone deterioration, your facial appearance changing, and even the shifting or loss of surrounding teeth! In order to restore the appearance of your smile, the function to your mouth and health to your jaw, we offer the gold standard in tooth replacement—dental implants. Natural-looking and long-lasting, dental implants are ideal for replacing anywhere from one missing tooth to an entire arch of missing teeth. Dental implants have three parts, a titanium post that integrates and fuses to your jaw bone, an abutment that rises from the gum line and a dental crown to restore tooth function and appearance to your smile.
36 MILLION AMERICANS DO NOT HAVE ANY TEETH
DENTAL IMPLANTS HAVE A 95 PERCENT SUCCESS RATE
3 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE IMPLANTS AND THAT NUMBER IS GROWING BY 500,000 A YEAR
What Are the Components of an Advanced Dental Implant
Dental implants have three parts; a titanium post which integrates and fuses to your jaw bone, an abutment that rises from the gum line and a dental crown to restore tooth function and appearance to your smile. Implants offer many benefits, including:
- Natural appearance
- Improves oral health
- Increases self-confidence
- Long lasting with proper care
- Strong biting and chewing function
YOUR DENTAL IMPLANT OPTIONS
Dental implants blend seamlessly into the smile to replace missing teeth with screw-like implants that adhere with the jaw bone. As you bite and chew with the attached dental crown, the implant provides the same bone stimulation as a natural tooth root, which keeps your bone levels healthy and protects the integrity of your smile.
Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.
Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.
Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses a number of dental implants (as few as four) surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.
