Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life without thinking about your teeth. Your teeth, like your fingerprints, are unique – no one else’s are the same as yours. Many options exist to replace missing teeth but only one – dental implants – can provide the foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence. Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth. When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost. A dental implant is gently placed where the root of the tooth once was so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. This is often a painless surgery that is done with local anesthetic and in some instances can be done in the same day.
