Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a titanium substitute for the missing roots of your natural teeth. These tooth replacements are utilized in many situations to restore areas where you are missing teeth: such as not having enough natural teeth to support a fixed bridge; replacing single-tooth areas; as well as to support and stabilizing partial dentures or full dentures.

What Happens When You Lose a Tooth?

Each tooth is made up of a crown and a root. The crown is the visible portion of your tooth, while the unseen root anchors the crown to the jawbone, providing stable support. Many options are available for replacing a crown, but only dental implants can replace the root. A missing tooth can make it difficult to chew properly and often results in further decay. If the root is not replaced, shrinkage of the jawbone occurs, leading to further tooth loss – and even makes your face look older. Dental implants can stop this process.

Why Choose Dental Implant Tooth Replacement?

Naturally, the effects of tooth loss vary from person to person and depend on the number and location of the teeth you’ve lost. If you’ve lost a crown, you have lost the visible part of your tooth. If you have lost the root as well, you have lost the unseen part of your tooth and, indeed, the most important part of your tooth.

The root anchors the tooth to your jawbone providing support for the crown of your tooth. Without the root, the bone around the missing tooth will gradually recede, remaining teeth will shift, and chewing will become more difficult with time.

For those who have lost all their teeth in their upper or lower jaws, the long-term problems are even greater. This is because bone shrinks after tooth loss; nerves become exposed, resulting in pain and dentures that lack support. Loose-fitting dentures compound problems, lead to sore gum tissue, and additional pain.

With dental implants, you can regain nearly all the capabilities you had with your natural teeth. Most implant patients experience renewed confidence. Your improved self-esteem will allow you to participate in activities you were once restricted from. You’ll be able to enjoy life.
