Despite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss – mostly due to tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease), or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But, today, dental implants are available.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
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: Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip.
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.
Durability: Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
