Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements, and when done by an expert dentist they can be virtually indistinguishable from other teeth. Whether replacing a single missing tooth, retaining a removable prosthesis, or restoring an entire mouth, dental implants are the most predictable, long-lasting, cost-effective method of treating these conditions.
Surgically inserted into the jawbone, dental implants act as an anchor within the mouth. Over time the bone will integrate with the implant, enabling dentures or other replacement teeth to be permanently fastened into place.
Implants have changed dentistry forever. We now have a proven viable option to not only replace teeth but to preserve bone and supporting structures through dental implants. Implants were first utilized in the US in the early 1980s. Patients had to undergo extensive surgery and wait up to a year before finishing their treatment. With the evolution of implant dentistry, surgeries can be performed without incisions resulting in virtually no discomfort or pain.
Dental Implants provide outstanding aesthetic and functional benefits to patients. Reduced irritation and oral sores, (generally associated with dentures) as well as increased support, stability and biting pressure are all experienced after treatment..
