Dental Implants

People with missing teeth or non-implant-supported options have problems eating certain foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits, which can compromise their nutrition.

Denture-wearing patients often lose some of their ability to taste foods. In addition, chewing can be difficult and painful so digestion is often compromised. Because dental implants function more like teeth, these offer the benefit of better health due to improved nutrition and taste, as well as proper digestion.

Self Confidence

Even the best made partials and dentures are prone to slipping and "clicking" if left unsupported. Business meetings, dining out and social activities become exercises in unpleasant suspense: Will my dentures embarrass me this time again?

Can they see the metal clasps on my partial?

With dental implants, you will smile, talk and eat with more comfort and confidence because your teeth won't slip or fall out!

 

Improved Quality Of Life

Dental implants are designed to be a long lasting solution for tooth loss and are cared for with brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Caring for non-implant tooth replacements can be much less convenient compared to implant-supported teeth. Dental implants also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesives.

 

Enhanced Appearance

When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to shrink away or resorb and becomes increasingly brittle, compromising adjacent teeth and increasing the chance of a changed appearance. Non-implant supported dentures, such as partials or bridges, may actually accelerate this process.

Dental implants may help to prevent or slow bone re-absorption, helping to preserve your natural facial contours.
