What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are implanted into your jaw bone to replace missing teeth, where the tooth roots once were. They replace the missing tooth roots and provide a stable base for the artificial tooth replacement that is later placed on top. The restoration is completed when the dental implant is later fitted with a dental bridge, crown, or denture.

Why Choose A Dental Implant?

Dental implants look, feel, and function so much like natural teeth, you will forget that you even lost a tooth at all! They are an excellent replacement for missing teeth, that can enhance the overall look of your smile and allow you to enjoy many of the foods you may have been missing out on.
Where a patient has only one missing tooth, dental implants can be used individually. In cases where there are multiple missing teeth or where the patient has previously had dentures, multiple implants are placed in the mouth to allow for implant-supported crowns or bridges, partial dentures, and complete dentures. Dental implants can also help with improving the way your dentures fit and alleviate any irritation or pain to the tissues of the gum often linked to the denture adhesive.
With proper care, good dental hygiene, and a healthy lifestyle, it is rare that implants will fail. In fact, the success rate is now in the 95%+ range. Failed implants can often be attributed to an unhealthy lifestyle (smoking), or to poor dental hygiene.

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
  • Restores function and chewing ability.
  • Improvement in the general quality of life for patients who have implant-supported or retained dentures, rather than standard or conventional (free-floating) dentures.
  • Preserve bone, and Maintain or realign, facial structure and profile
  • Do not decay and are easy to clean.
  • Aid in the preservation of the natural teeth that border the dental implant. With an implant-supported bridge, adjacent natural teeth need not be stressed in order to hold the bridge in place, as is the case with traditional removable partial dentures.
  • Implants aid in the prevention of the appearance of premature aging resulting from bone loss. With patients using standard or conventional dentures, osteoporosis can accelerate bone loss.
  • Conventional full dentures often cause difficulty speaking, smiling, and eating. Implant-supported dentures effectively eliminate the embarrassment of denture slippage. The implants act to ‘anchor’ the dentures.
  • Cost-effective when taking into account the functioning life of the implant.
  • A very high success rate in the 95% range.
