Dental implants look, work and feel just like your natural teeth
Advantages of Dental Implants
According to statistics, 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to gum disease, an accident, a failed root canal or tooth decay. By age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Dentures can make a person look and feel older than they really are. They can also cause embarrassment when they slip and click. Implants integrate into your jawbone just like a natural tooth root. So there is no slippage. And they are made of strong and durable titanium, and can outlast most natural teeth!
Over the last decade, with improvements in implant technology, implants have been viewed by the dental community as the Gold Standard in long-term tooth replacement. Our team of implant specialists has extensive experience in implant placement and use the latest equipment and techniques to optimize results.
The advantage of Dental Implants over Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is made of porcelain false teeth supported by adjacent natural teeth. The natural teeth must be drilled down and a crown placed to support the bridge. However, teeth that have been drilled are weaker and more sensitive, and more likely to decay.
There is no need to touch healthy adjacent teeth when an implant is utilized. And a dental implant, like natural teeth, actually prevents bone loss.
Bridges also usually have a shorter life span than implants. Bridges can last five to 15 years, with good oral hygiene and regular checkups. Implant-supported bridges, when cared for properly like natural teeth, can last for twenty-five years and more.
There are various implant treatment options to replace missing teeth. We evaluate each patient’s condition to advise them on the best solution for their situation.
