WHAT TO EXPECT

Dental implant surgery may involve several procedures, depending on different factors such as the condition of your jawbone. A major benefit of implants are the solid support they provide your new teeth.

WHY CHOOSE DENTAL IMPLANTS

Many dentists and patients recommend and choose implants because of their reliability and durability. Because they are surgically placed in your jawbone, they provide a lot of support. They serve as the roots of missing teeth, fusing with your jawbone. They do not slip, make noise, or damage bones like bridgework or dentures may cause.

BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, then dental implants can restore and maintain oral health. They will also restore the natural look of your smile so you won't need to worry about the sight of missing teeth anymore. They can help a jawbone that has reached full growth. If you have an adequate amount of bone to secure an implant to, then implants may be the perfect solution.

If you do not have an adequate amount of bone then bone grafting may be used to provide the adequate structure needed for you to undergo an implant. Implants can also be a great option for people who do not want to wear dentures. Implants may even improve the clarity of your speech, making it easier for others to understand you. There are many benefits to implants and this is why so many patients choose implants over other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
