A dental implant is a metal post placed in the jawbone that supports and anchors a tooth replacement such as a dental crown or even a removable denture.
Implants represent the ultimate, gold standard in restorative dentistry, the end-all dental solution. Why? Because of these unparalleled benefits:
Implants let you chew with more security than dentures do. You can bite into healthy foods and enjoy a greater variety of the meals you love. An implant can also eliminate that annoying “food trap” created by a missing tooth.
Tired of constantly getting your denture adjusted or having new partials made? Dental implants get rid of all of that. Once an implant heals in place, it’s basically set for life, as long as you take care of it.
Caring for your implants is just like brushing and flossing your natural teeth. You need to work to keep an implant healthy and strong, but that’s usually easier than flossing under a fixed bridge or cleaning a denture every day.
An implant is designed to feel just like a natural tooth, so there will be no fear of it slipping out of place, pinching, or chafing your gums. It’s secure and ready to go all day long.
It almost goes without saying that you’ll look great by completing your smile with an implant! Knowing you can smile, laugh, chew, and talk with confidence will help you live your life worry-free.
