Dental implants may be the right solution for you, if:
You Want Natural-Looking, Permanent Teeth
No matter which implant solution you choose, your restoration will be custom-made to blend in with your smile for natural-looking results. Best of all, dental implants are extremely durable and can last a lifetime with proper care.
You Want to Protect Your Oral Health
The key to the success of dental implants is the process of osseointegration, during which your implant fixture fuses with your jawbone to replace your missing tooth root, as well as providing the function and performance of a natural tooth.
Dental implants also prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting position. This bolsters the health of your smile, reducing your chances of getting gum disease. It also stimulates healthy jawbone growth, something no other restoration can do.
Frequently Asked Questions
If I have gum disease, can I still get dental implants?
Healthy gums are crucial to the success of your implants, so patients with gum disease won’t be able to immediately qualify for the procedure. Thankfully, our dentists offer a variety of treatments to eliminate gum infections and restore the health of your smile. Once your gums are free of bacteria, you’ll be ready for implant placement.
What if my jawbone isn’t strong enough for dental implants?
A strong, dense jawbone is needed to support dental implants and help them last a long time. Unfortunately, when you lose a tooth, that area of your jawbone loses stimulation and starts to deteriorate. As a result, patients who are missing several teeth can experience significant bone loss in their jaw.
Íf your jawbone lacks the density to support implants, a bone grafting procedure will restore it to full strength and prepare you for surgery.
