Why Dental Implants?
Once you learn about dental implants, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life for any age. Health is more a determining factor than age. When you lose a tooth or several teeth, whether it’s a new situation or something you have lived with for years, chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself. Dental implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement. With implants we can offer replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Implants help preserve your looks, smile, health and self-confidence.
…One missing tooth
Dental implants are an ideal solution for replacing a single missing tooth in the upper or lower jaw. Because implants serve as anchors, they help to eliminate the need to use healthy adjacent teeth to support a false tooth as required by traditional Fixed Bridge procedures.
…or Several missing teeth
Implants are also an optimal solution for replacing several missing teeth and can be placed to retain separate crowns, or a bridge attached to several dental implants. Because implants act as replacement tooth roots, they help to eliminate the need to support Removable Partial Denture by clasping or grinding adjacent teeth.
…or All of your teeth
If all of your teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw, dental implants are the best solution. There are options of a removable Complete Denture that rests on soft tissue, or a removable Implant Retained Overdenture that is attached to dental implants. The Overdenture remains securely in place in your mouth, yet it is easy to remove. Another major option is a Fixed Prosthesis that is retained by four or more dental implants. The All-on-4 (TM) Teeth-in-One-Day is one such immediate smile model.
