Implants

Implants have many advantages over dentures, bridges, and other prostheses. Implants will:

*Look and function like natural teeth

*become a permanent part of the mouth, integrated with the surrounding bone

*not slip, move, or irritate gum tissue ( unlike dentures )

*provide patients a secure and stable fit

*restore up to 90% of chewing power lost with missing teeth

*improve the quality of life for a significant number of patients

*give patients more confidence when speaking and chewing

Conclusion:   Dental Implants have many advantages over dentures, bridges, and other prosthetics. Implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth.  Implants give patients a brighter smile, maintain the integrity of the mouth, improve oral health, prevent bone loss and enhance chewing efficiency.  Every patient missing teeth, regardless of age, is a candidate for implants.
