Dental Implants are designed for the person who has one or more missing teeth and want a replacement that will look, feel and function like their own natural teeth. Implants regain the patient's ability to function as they did before: eating their choice of foods, speaking and laughing with people, having a pleasing smile, as well as maintaining facial contouring and structure that may have deteriorated with time due to missing teeth. Dental Implants have virtually given back to many patients the simple joys of life and the personal confidence that they are searching for.
Implants are small titanium steel posts which are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. They act as “root substitutes” for the future placement of artificial teeth. These titanium fixtures can support crown, bridges, or dentures and can be used to replace single or multiple teeth. Bone surrounding the implants integrates with the posts, becoming a solid foundation for the replacement teeth.
The placement of Dental Implants is a gentle, non-traumatic surgical procedure carried out in two phases. Your Oral Surgeon works closely with your restorative dentist who custom makes and fits your new teeth. You are an essential part of a very important team, designed and motivated to make your decision to have dental implants a tremendous success.
