A Strong Foundation for Dental Health

Candidates for dental implants are looking for a tooth replacement option they can trust. Implants offer good reason for such trust.

Dental implants offer a number of specific advantages over dentures, dental bridges and other, more traditional tooth replacement options. These advantages include:

  • Durability: Dental implants can last for decades if properly cared for using simple dental hygiene steps
  • Subtlety: They seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, betraying no artificiality
  • Stability: Implants are stable and secure in a way traditional dentures aren’t

What Is Involved in Dental Implant Placement?

First, dental implants and the tooth restoration that sits on top of them are made from strong, high quality material – namely, porcelain and titanium. These durable materials can last for years.

Second, the implants (artificial tooth roots) are placed deep within your jaw, which provides your replacement tooth with a firm anchor.

Finally, osseointegration, which is the process by which your jawbone will integrate the implant into your body, makes it possible for your implants to be strongly rooted. The bone tissue essentially accepts and engulfs the implant, making it part of the jaw.

The result is a tooth replacement option that is vastly superior to most others available. Not every patient is a good candidate for dental implants, but if you are, you will find yourself happy and satisfied with your new tooth.
