Implants are an excellent dental solution for replacing lost or extracted teeth and overall, create a functional and natural look. Implants enhance your smile as well as your lifestyle. Dental implants are among the most common treatment alternative for missing, broken, or cracked teeth. Dental implants are an excellent option for ensuring proper tooth and chewing function and completing your smile. They can replace a singular tooth or multiple teeth. Miniature dental implants can be placed with one visit.
Dental implants anchor a prosthetic tooth (Crown) within the jawbone, and under the gums. Implants can last for a lifetime when given appropriate preventative dental maintenance. Most importantly, because of their established durability, dental implants provide a long-lasting dental health solution. Implants are so integrative and low maintenance, that patients often forget they even have them as the years go by.
Quality aesthetic implants are created from titanium but some implants are composed of metallic, ceramic or biocompatible materials such as zirconia, stainless steel and titanium alloy. Implants are firmly anchored in the mouth, and for this reason, do not impact speech. In contrast to bridges, dental implants do not require adjustments to adjacent teeth and are therefore less invasive. After implants are placed and a Crown is attached, the new ‘tooth’ is fully operational and looks just like a natural tooth.
Whether replacing one tooth or a full arch, implants provide many advantages over other tooth replacement alternatives. They are a suitable choice, if an adult has healthy gums, and there’s enough healthy bone in the jaw to hold the implant. While dental implants are a significant financial investment, flexible funding alternatives can be arranged. Please call us for a no obligation consult to see if implants are the right option for you.
