Dental implants have enhanced the quality of life for millions of people throughout the world, improving overall health and well being and restoring the confidence that comes from a natural smile and appearance.
This “state-of-the-art” dental technology makes it possible to restore the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state and eliminate the need to cut down adjacent teeth for bridgework. Dental implants are substitute tooth roots, used to replace natural tooth roots in areas of the mouth where teeth are missing. Dental implants provide virtually the same function as natural tooth roots, stimulating bone growth, preserving bone, and providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth. A dental implant may be a replacement root for a missing tooth or used to support a denture.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implant treatment is the only tooth replacement option that provides the following benefits:
- Preserves bone/prevents bone resorption (deterioration).
- No compromise to the health of adjacent teeth.
- Highest success rates and best long-term prognosis.
And dental implant treatment is also the most cost-effective treatment option long-term.
