Why choose dental implants?

Learn why dental implants are now the standard of care for missing teeth.

The decision to replace missing teeth with dental implants is an excellent investment in your oral health and appearance. There are many advantages when you choose dental implant treatment over a conventional method for tooth replacement:

A beautiful, natural-looking solution - Most similar to natural teeth, dental implants are designed to be a reliable, stable, and natural-looking restorative solution.

Prevent and minimize bone loss – Implants transmit chewing forces to the jaw bones, helping to maintain your bone and facial structure. Without teeth your bone may resorb resulting in shifting teeth and loss of facial structure.

Preserve surrounding teeth - When an implant is inserted in place of a missing tooth, adjacent health teeth are not damaged. With a conventional bridge, neighboring teeth must be ground down to support

Comfort - With dental implants, palatal plates used with conventional dentures are unnecessary. Patients who replace all of their teeth with dental implants can feel more comfortable talking, smiling and eating.
