Improve Your Smile and Appearance With Implants

blog-improve-your-appearance-with-implantsTooth loss not only can diminish your ability to chew but it also can profoundly decrease self-confidence. If you feel too self-conscious to smile and can’t enjoy meals, we offer an effective solution with dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are biocompatible restorations that mimic the design of natural tooth roots. If you have missing teeth, the implant design allows us to permanently affix various types of restorations. These include

What Does the Process Involve?

Getting dental implants is relatively easy and comfortable. Implants can improve the function and appearance of your smile. Only a small amount of local anaesthetic is needed. If the tooth is already missing, we form an opening in the gums. Then, we place the artificial root directly into the bone. If any teeth need to be extracted a healing period may be necessary before implant surgery.

After we set your implant, the area is allowed to heal. New bone integrates around the restoration, fusing it into place. Next, we permanently attach the restoration (crown, denture, etc.) on top of the implant abutment.

A Long-lasting Investment in Your Smile

Because dental implants can last for many decades, if not for your entire life, they are a wise investment. Implants have an extremely high success rate and predictable outcome for our patients. Additionally, implants are noninvasive to other teeth and help preserve the bone that makes up your facial profile.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Implants?

To be considered for implant therapy, you must be over 18 and in generally good overall health. We recommend that candidates give up smoking or other tobacco use. That’s because these habits can delay healing and integration of the implant with the body.
