Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth to anchor the replacement crowns. They offer an alternative for replacing missing teeth that look, feel, and functions very naturally.

Placed surgically below the gums, dental implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as an anchor for crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Today, dental implants are considered among the most successful dental prosthesis and usually is the treatment of choice for missing or lost teeth. They offer stability because they fuse to the jaw bone.

Integration of the implanted body into the bone is why most people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes like dentures.

Implants also have some significant advantages over the traditional fixed bridges, especially when the teeth adjacent to the missing teeth are healthy.

Fixed bridges require grinding down healthy adjacent teeth and, therefore, the potential for increased risk of decay. In addition, bone resorption, which happens over time, results in compromised aesthetics. The life span of most bridges is only 5 to 7 years.

On the other hand, Implants help keep adjacent teeth intact – no grinding is required, bone integrity is preserved, and implants are long-lasting. The aesthetic and functional results often last for life.

Remember, replacing missing teeth is important to maintaining good dental health. As your dentists, we can evaluate the conditions in your mouth and help you decide if you are a good candidate for implants.

If you have only one missing tooth, a dental crown on a dental implant is likely your best choice. Like the natural root, a dental implant provides the foundation for a dental crown, and a state-of-the-art porcelain crown on a dental implant looks and functions very much like a missing tooth.
