Dental Implants For A Better Smile
Dental implants enable dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in an innovative way. Used to replace one or more missing teeth, implants are another alternative to conventional bridges and dentures.
In essence, dental implants act and look like natural teeth. And, because they maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss as well as the sunken facial appearance associated with missing teeth.
A dental implant restoration consists of a bio-compatible titanium screw and post topped by a crown bridge or denture. Cosmetic dentists surgically replace the implant into the jawbone where it replaces the natural tooth root.
In a few months, the dental implant securely attaches to the bone allowing it to withstand biting and chewing forces just like a healthy, natural tooth. Patients who successfully pass a screening and evaluation can be considered as candidates for implant replacement.
The primary limiting factor inherent in implant therapy is the amount of bone available to receive and support the dental implant. If it's determined that a patient does not have enough bone to support an implant restoration, bone grafting procedures may be considered.
Heavy smoking and some medical conditions may preclude the use of implant therapy. Implant dentistry is considered to be the next best thing to a patient's own teeth.

Teeth implants are the alternatives to conventional bridges and dentures. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Dental implants are generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures, and for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
Implantation will allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues, without even touching the other teeth.
More than that, the deformation in the upper and lower jaw can be corrected through dental implants. Teeth implants act and look like natural teeth and give the original look to the denture.
As they maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss as well as the sunken facial appearance associated with missing teeth. In addition, they don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant.
Implants support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removal of partial denture and also provides support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable. Implants offer freedom from irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, then there is good news for you. Dental implants are so natural looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
A cosmetic dentist will consult with you to determine where and how the implant should be placed. Depending on the specified conditions and the type of tooth implant chosen, the doctor will create a treatment plan according to your needs.
In a few months time, the implant securely attaches to the bone and will allow it to withstand biting and chewing forces just like a healthy, natural tooth. Under proper conditions and diligent patient maintenance, the success rate of implants in our practice is highly predictable.
Below are listed some of the benefits of having dental implants:
- Implants restore proper chewing function and so you can enjoy foods previously too "difficult" to eat. You feel confident that your replacement teeth won't move or loosen.
- You regain the closest thing to the look, feel and function of your natural teeth.
- Throw away those gooey adhesives.
- Forget about unsightly partial denture clasps which place damaging pressure on remaining natural teeth.
- Eliminate irritated and painful gums.
- Improve your speech by eliminating or reducing the "fullness" of full or partial dentures.
- Replace missing teeth with the look and feel of natural teeth without having to "cut down" healthy teeth.
- Dental implants help stop the progressive bone loss and shrinkage of your jawbone by "mimicking" the roots of natural teeth.
- Dental implants are clinically proven with a success rate in excess of 90%
