Dental Implants Back


A dental implant is a root made out of titanium. It is attached to the jawbone to replace the root that would be found in a healthy natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the dental implant to hold the false tooth in place. An implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place. There can be many consequences if missing teeth are not replaced in a timely fashion.

Consequences of missing teeth with no replacement:

  • Difficulty in chewing food
  • Difficulty speaking if front teeth are missing
  • Deterioration of facial structure over time
  • Adjacent teeth may drift
  • Appearing older
  • Impacted aesthetic of the smile

Our dentists may refer their patient to a specialist (Oral surgeon or Periodontist ) , as this type of dental implant requires surgery. This procedure is only meant for people who have healthy gums and enough jawbone to hold the implants in place.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Stopping bone loss and preserving the facial structure
  • Natural looking teeth
  • Improve your smile
  • Stabilizing the function of the mouth by improving chewing
  • Better health of the teeth, gums and jaw
  • Eliminating dentures where possible for increased comfort
