Dental Implants


Dental Implants

Dental implants are root shaped metal cylinders made of titanium that are used for teeth replacement. Implants function as replacement tooth roots that provide a foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants appear, function, and feel like natural teeth. And, they eliminate the need to compromise neighboring teeth. For example, conventional bridgework requires shaving down the adjacent teeth to allow placement of the bridge. With dental implants, the adjacent teeth are not effected. Also, dental implants are permanently fixed into your mouth. There is no need to remove them for maintenance like dentures.

Why should I choose dental implants?

Natural teeth are attached to the jawbone by their roots. The tooth roots hold the teeth in place and help maintain the surrounding jawbone. When natural teeth are removed, the jawbone shrinks and weakens. Dental implants help to preserve the jawbone while replacing your teeth.

How long can dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to last for many years. With proper home care and regular dental follow-up visits, implants can last a lifetime.
