Dental Implants, Implant Dentist
Dental implants are fundamentally fixed, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. An implant has titanium inserts that permanently attach to the bone. A prosthetic tooth is then attached to the implant. Implants are often favored over bridges due to the fact that they will improve your bite with no damage to the neighboring teeth. Treatment is usually completed three to five appointments over the time of 5 to 12 months.
The benefits of dental implants include:
No damage to neighboring teeth
Maintains jaw structure
Looks identical and functions like natural teeth
Helps with speech impairments and eating problems caused by missing teeth
Improves confidence and gives a natural look
No issues with loose dentures and bridge upkeep
