Dental implants are artificial replacements for missing teeth roots that are placed into the jawbone and are used to support crowns, bridges and stabilize loose-fitting dentures. Dental implants have the look, feel and function of natural teeth and can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. If you have broken, missing or severely decayed teeth, then a dental implant may be right for you. Dental implants are designed to provide beautiful cosmetic results, enhance your lifestyle and prevent the deterioration of your jawbone structure.
Dental implant benefits
Appearance – dental implants look far more aesthetic as they are placed into the structure of your bone and will prevent bone loss and further gum recession. The implants look and act more like your natural teeth as compared to loose fitting dentures and ill fitting bridgework.
Increased Confidence and Self Esteem- Speak, smile and eat with confidence! With dental implants you no longer have to worry about your dentures slipping and cracking while eating or speaking. They look and act like your natural teeth so you can enjoy the lifestyle you want without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious.
Reliability – success rates for dental implants are very high (>95%) and the longevity of an implant restoration can be a lifetime. Of course good oral health, healthy gum tissue and good bone structure help increase the effectiveness.
