Dental implants are custom-made replacement teeth designed to match the shape and color of the original tooth or teeth. Each one is fitted with a device that is used to screw directly into the jaw bone. There are numerous benefits to choosing dental implants. Because implants are a permanent solution, most patients feel more confident in the appearance and function of the smile. Additionally, patients aren’t bothered by the common problems associated with dentures and bridges, such as food particles becoming lodged under the appliance or embarrassing slipping. People with dental implants also are able to clean and care for them just as they do with their own teeth.
The replacement of one or more missing teeth with dental implants is a multiphase process. It may include an initial consultation, preparatory procedures, implant placement, and restoration. The entire dental implant supported tooth replacement process can take months, a year, or even a bit longer, but the end result is a permanently affixed, natural looking, and flawlessly functioning restoration you’ll be proud to share. During your tooth replacement consultation, we’ll review your unique situation and lay out the entire restoration process, including estimating your treatment timeline.
Dental implants have many benefits that help patients choose them as their perfect tooth replacement solution, like:

Dental implants are a true investment in your oral health. Although may patients may claim that dental implants are more expensive than they are willing to spend, you must think about the benefits of dental implants. They are a life-long tooth replacement solution that provides newfound stability, aesthetics, and improved overall oral health. The cost isn’t even the implant itself, it’s the time, expertise, and resources that are required to successfully place an implant that determine the cost.
