Get That Natural Feeling Back

You may have been missing teeth for years. Maybe you’ve known your teeth are in bad shape, but you’ve put off doing anything about them. Severe decay, deep cracks, and bad breaks all could be reasons to remove teeth rather than restoring them.

Regardless of your reason, you owe it to yourself to learn about implants if you need to replace teeth. With implants, you can trust that your new teeth will stay in place and that your smile will look and feel natural.

The functional benefits of implants may exceed the cosmetic improvements to your smile. With implants your restorations allow you to speak and eat naturally. When you have an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture, you can feel confident biting and chewing the foods that you love. You won’t need denture adhesives to keep your “teeth” in place, either.

Build A Solid Foundation For Your New Smile

Modern implants were first developed in the 1960s to replace the roots of missing teeth. Since those first implants were placed, innovations and improvements have made them stronger and more secure. With proper care, implants can last the rest of your life.

These artificial roots are placed directly in your jawbone. This serves two important purposes. As you recover from the procedure, your jawbone bonds to the implants. This holds your implant securely in place, which makes it a stable foundation to support your dental restoration. This also creates a direct connection from your crown, bridge, or dentures to your jawbone. That allows you to put more force into each and every bite. From a practical standpoint, it’s pretty much like have healthy teeth again.

The second thing that happens is your implants press into your jaw. That stimulates new bone growth. This is essential to prevent the kind of bone loss that can occur when you lose teeth or replace teeth without something to replace your roots as well. Traditional bridges and dentures, for example, rest over your gum. As a result, bone loss can still happen if you choose those kinds of restorations.
