If you have lost or are missing a tooth, a dental implant is the best option for replacing it. They preserve your bone and tissue, have a 95% success rate and there is no risk of decay. Dental Implants serve as the artificial root to which new teeth are bonded. The procedure to insert dental implants typically involves three steps: the implant insertion stage, osseointegration (the period of healing for the jawbone, typically 3-6 months), and the attachment of the restoration or new tooth (crown).
Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. A person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that their facial contours will be preserved. Implants are designed to fuse with your bone, so it is a permanent solution. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, like a tooth-supported bridge. This makes it so that more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth for cleaning.
