If you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or want a more comfortable and stable denture, dental implants may be the solution you are looking for.
Missing teeth can have a negative impact on your dental and overall health. Each of your teeth is supported by bone and when that tooth is lost the bone is lost too. Some of the bone can be lost immediately at the time of extraction but even more is lost over time as the area heals. When the bone is lost, adjacent teeth often begin to drift or tip into that space causing misalignment. This can lead to jaw (TMJ) problems, periodontal (gum) problems, or weaken the remaining adjacent teeth. If a dental implant is placed, bone stimulation can still occur as if the natural tooth were present reducing or eliminating further bone loss.
In addition to preserving the jaw bone, the restored dental implant mimics your natural teeth in apperance, maintains proper alignment of the teeth, and allows you to chew normally. Most people can't tell the difference between a natual tooth and dental implant. They are biocompatible and often last a lifetime with proper care and good oral hygiene. Another great advantage of dental implants is adjacent teeth don't need to be ground down like they would be for a conventional bridge.
Multiple dental implants can be placed for areas with many or all of the teeth missing. They can be restored individually, with a bridge, or be used an anchors for complete and partial dentures providing more stability and comfort.
