The problem: Missing teeth, loose dentures, difficulty chewing or speaking
What we can do to help:
Dental implants are one of the most exciting advancements in dental technology. Implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth and give a beautiful, natural look that can last a lifetime. If you have gaps in your smile or are tired of struggling with loose dentures, implants could be the perfect option for you.
Implants are one of the healthiest ways to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures, implants are permanent and don’t rely on existing teeth for support. Because they are anchored in the jawbone, implants look and feel just like your real teeth. In fact, dental implants are so stable and secure that they give you ten times more chewing power then dentures! With implants you’ll finally be able to eat your favourite foods again. And you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a picture-perfect smile that glows with natural beauty!
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a permanent artificial replacement of a natural tooth. As part of the procedure, a metal anchor, or implant, is placed below the gum-line. The implant acts like the root of your real tooth, providing the same level of security and stability for your new tooth. Once the implant is securely in place, the dentist will create a crown or attach a denture or bridge [link to fixed bridges page] to fit over the metal anchor and replace your missing tooth.
Why are dental implants effective?
Because the implant is secured below the gums, it simulates fresh bone and tissue to grow around it. This new growth prevents the jawbone and gum tissue from shrinking and deteriorating, which happens when teeth are missing. Dental implants protect your oral health by preventing damage to surrounding teeth and help support facial muscles, giving you a more youthful appearance. Implants also free you from wobbly dentures and messy denture pastes and glues. With implants, you can speak and eat with comfort and smile with confidence. Implants have a very high success rate and can last a lifetime with proper care.
