The replacement of lost teeth has been revolutionized by dental implants, offering patients an option that is stable, permanent and supports long term dental health. Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth and provide a beautiful alternative to bridges and dentures.
Not only does a dental implant fill unsightly gaps in a smile, they are also important to deter bone loss which will occur when a tooth is lost. The titanium post fuses with the bone, preventing it from dissolving.
Fixed bridges and removable dentures are not the perfect solution to missing teeth and often bring with them a number of problems. They only provide 10 to 15 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth, making it more difficult to enjoy many foods.
