Implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth!
They look and feel real while preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure.
Millions of Americans suffer tooth loss from tooth decay, gum disease or injury. Solutions in the past were limited to bridges and dentures. Today, in many cases, there is a better option – Dental Implants. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that are fused right to the bone of your jaw. It may sound painful but most patients experience little discomfort during implant procedure. Dental implants provide the strongest foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. Here are some advantages published on WebMD.com.
Improved appearance.Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
