If you are genetically predisposed to tooth loss or your teeth can’t keep up with your lifestyle, then dental implants may be the ideal solution to restore your smile. A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that is surgically implanted under the gumline. After the gums have healed, a replacement tooth that mimics the appearance of your natural tooth is is placed on the synthetic root. Not only can the replacement tooth rejuvenate your smile, it can reinforce your jaw structure and prevent further tooth shifting, as well.
Dental implants are as versatile as our patients. Whether you are missing a single tooth or several teeth in a row, implants can restore your smile. Unlike dentures or bridges, implants provide a natural-looking and stable smile that is capable of devouring your favorite foods. Like any other dental device or restoration, implants must be taken care of. With proper hygiene and care, your implants can last for decades.
