What Can Dental Implants Do for You?
Dental implants are the only permanent solution for missing teeth. Whether you’re missing one tooth, a full arch, or all of them, we can restore your smile with dental implants. Although dentures are a more common restorative option, only dental implants can replace both the tooth root and the actual tooth. This prevents the jawbone from shrinking over time.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Many aspects of this treatment are superior to the results you get with dentures or a bridge. Some of the most notable benefits of dental implants include:
Designed to last a lifetime if properly cared for
Strong enough for you to eat any of the foods you want with no limitations
Easy maintenance that’s as simple as brushing and flossing
No risk of losing your implants or having them shift in your mouth
Get the attractive, natural-looking smile you deserve
The Dental Implants Process
If you’re considering dental implants, we’ll help you understand what to expect from all stages of the treatment. Here’s more information patients should know about the dental implant procedure:
Implants are very strong due to osseointegration, the process in which they integrate with the jawbone
The three parts of a dental implant are the fixture, abutment, and restoration. The restoration is typically a crown
The stages of dental implants include the initial consultation, first surgery, recovery period, and second surgery
Although the recovery stage can last around three to six months, you’ll be given a temporary implant while your body adapts to the new one
