Are you missing teeth due to decay, gum disease or injury? Do you long for a healthy, attractive smile you can share with the world? Are you opting out of fun activities and new opportunities because the appearance of your teeth dents your confidence? Does the condition of your teeth interfere with your ability to eat or speak, causing you to feel insecure on the job or in the company of others?
You are far from alone. Dental implant surgery is the single most sought after dental procedure today, and they are the answer to your problem.
Implants offer cosmetic, health and performance benefits. Restoring your teeth can rejuvenate your appearance and spirit. Missing teeth puts you at high risk for losing more. Implants aid in keeping remaining teeth from becoming malpositioned or unstable. It can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet with missing teeth or badly-fitted dentures. The frustration that comes with the inability to eat your favorite foods and enjoy special meals affects your quality of life. With implants you will be able to get the nutrition you require and to eat comfortably and confidently.
Dental implant surgery is a simple, safe and effective treatment for patients aged late-teens to late-80’s. Implants may be used to replace just one tooth, a bridge or full dentures. Made from titanium, a durable material compatible with human body tissue, implants are placed into the jawbone. Natural bone is stimulated to attach to the implant, locking it in place through a process known as osseointegration, creating a stable foundation for the new teeth.
The procedure usually requires two steps: surgical placement of the implant, followed by later placement of the tooth (crown) on top. Duration between each step varies by case. The extent of treatment will determine the best necessary anesthesia for placement. More extensive cases may require general anesthesia. Post-operative discomfort is minimal, often less than a tooth extraction, and is well managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Recovery is usually uncomplicated and brief.
Implanted teeth are comfortable and function exactly like natural teeth. You can smile, speak and eat with ease and assurance. Easy to maintain and not subject to decay, care is simple. With effective brushing, flossing and regular check-ups, implants will last a lifetime. In comparison to a dental bridge which lasts between 4 to 12 years, or dentures that typically have to be replaced every 3 to 5 years, implants offer both a financial and practical advantages.
