Dental Implants – the next best thing to Natural Teeth
If you are missing teeth or wear dentures, you may be a candidate for dental implants. These tiny surgical cylinders act as structural replacements for the roots of lost teeth to create a foundation for a dental crown or to stabilize dentures.
Single Tooth Replacement
Dental Implants are often the preferred approach to replace a single missing tooth rather than a traditional dental bridge, which involves drilling of surrounding teeth that may not need treatment otherwise. A single tooth implant can be restored with a porcelain crown to create a natural-looking result without disturbing adjacent teeth.
Dental Implants are fast-becoming the ideal anchors for complete and partial dentures. Patients that have had their dentures secured with dental implants often comment that they can enjoy foods such as pizza, steak and crunchy vegetables again without fear or embarrassment of loose dentures that slip when eating or talking.
Integration and Preservation
Due to lack of stimulation and blood flow between the teeth and jaw structures, missing teeth are directly linked to increased loss of jaw bone support as we age. Current research indicates that the placement of dental implants, in the absence of natural teeth, may help reduce the rate of bone loss due to missing teeth.
