Dental implants are ideal for patients who have one or more missing teeth, or are about to lose teeth due to tooth decay or severe periodontal disease.
The dental implant itself is an artificial tooth-root that is inserted into the jawbone and acts as an anchor to support a replacement tooth or teeth.
Dental implants look, feel, and work very much like natural teeth because they are integrated with the bone and don’t require adhesives or artificial gum lines. They are also never removed. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper dental hygiene and routine visits. They have up to a 98% success rate.
For many, dental implants are the new standard and make an excellent alternative to bridgework or dentures.
Dental implants are may be right for you if you have one or more missing teeth, a healthy jawbone that can secure the implants, have healthy oral tissues, if you are unable or unwilling to wear dentures, and if you are willing to commit several months to the process.
