What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They are secured into the bone to provide long term support for crowns and dentures.
Why consider Dental Implants?
Losing one of more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?
Dental Implant Therapy
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
Benefits of dental implants
- replaces missing teeth
- maintains bone*
