DENTAL IMPLANTS

 
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. While natural teeth consist of a crown and a root, implants comprise three components

The biocompatible titanium implant that replaces the tooth root in the bone

The porcelain crown or denture

The abutment that connects the implant and crown together

Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement option because they do not require support from adjacent teeth and they keep the jawbone strong. Dental implants have a success rate of 95 to 98%. With dental implants, patients don’t suffer increased sensitivity or tooth decay.

WHAT ARE IMPLANT-SUPPORTED DENTURES?

Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, dental implants can restore your mouth to a natural, healthy state. A dental implant mimics the tooth-root structure to maximize your ability to eat, chew, and speak with full confidence.

If you’ve worn dentures before, you are likely all too aware of their shortcomings. Dentures require messy adhesives, causes bone loss that will affect the fit over time and often requires food restrictions.

Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, can offer you a more more reliable way to restore a lifelike smile and improve functionality. If you are missing several or all of your teeth, multiple implants can support a full denture prosthesis and replace an entire row of teeth.

Implant-supported dentures are more comfortable, improve chewing ability and offer a much more realistic smile free from adhesives.
