Dental Implants offer a wide range of benefits:

  • Your teeth will look and feel natural, providing a confident smile
  • Elimination of discomfort or soreness some experience with ordinary dentures or bridges
  • No slipping, allowing you to speak and eat normally
  • Missing teeth can affect what foods or drinks you can consume, which can lead to poor nutrition and overall health
  • Your bite can also be affected, causing your teeth to line up improperly which can lead to possible jaw joint or other bite problems
  • Your self-esteem can be reduced as well, if you feel self-conscious and worry about people noticing missing teeth

Supporting Dentures

When a patient has lost all of his or her teeth but wants a better fit and more retention than traditional dentures allow, implant supported dentures can give them that stability. A limited number of implants are placed into the jawbone, and the denture fits snugly over the implants and a connector called an abutment.

Supporting Crowns/Bridges

Single tooth implants are used when one or more of patients teeth are missing. They offer the stability of a natural tooth root, and this is an excellent option for patients who do not wish to have a removable appliance. Standard implants can support crowns (to replace a single tooth) or bridges (missing adjacent teeth).
