When people lose permanent teeth due to injury, disease or extraction, a dental implant is the most advanced treatment available to replace missing teeth. Restorations on dental implants generally look, feel and act like natural teeth.
An implant is a special surgical grade titanium post, manufactured with highly precise specifications under strict sterile conditions. It is inserted surgically into the jawbone below the gum surface. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation onto which your new teeth are then attached and shaped to match your mouth.
Tooth loss inevitably results in bone loss, similar to the atrophy that occurs in muscles from lack of use. Bone loss and lack of teeth can result in visible defects in your smile, dramatically affect your ability to chew, and compromise the integrity of your remaining teeth.
Dental implants are superior to other tooth replacement options because they are solid, secure, and esthetically pleasing. Biologically, the implant preserves your natural bone by stimulating it to remain after the tooth has been removed. The implant process eliminates the need to remove healthy tooth structure often required for other tooth replacement options. Additionally, dental implants eliminate the pain and discomfort associated with wearing dentures.
